The world is changing. New technology trends such as Artificial Intelligence and Analytics have an increasing impact on the business world and on people’s daily life. Is the HR department ready to face these challenges?
What is it doing to support the organization in facing the digital transformation? Is it rethinking its competences and people development and management processes to make them adequate to the changes introduced by digital technology?
One of the main, high priority challenges that HR professionals must face in 2016 is managing company reorganizations, reported by over half of the interviewed sample (52%), followed by the need to increase worker motivation and satisfaction (39%), by searching for new roles and skills (34%), and employer branding and new talents attraction (34%). Also growing, compared to last year, is the need to organize Smart Working initiatives focused on revising work models: 1 HR management office out of 3 considers this theme highly relevant.
Organisations search for people with the digital capabilities needed to transform their businesses from a digital perspective. The professional figures most in demand are the eCRM & Profiling Manager, the Digital Marketing Manager and the Chief Innovation Office, while the Chief Digital Officer is the most difficult to find on the market. Soft skills are also re-examined in a digital key.
