Business organisations are experiencing disruption in all areas of operations including uncertainty of technological changes and their impact on employees’ front.
This ambiguity and complexity make HR play an effective role in navigating change and disruption for organizations and employees. The way CHRO works can have a lot of bearing on the organization. It can be the difference between a happy set of employees and a disgruntled one. Achieving the objectives of the CHRO priorities will be a key enabler for the success of a business.
How should CHRO move ahead, and decide about priorities by removing trash from grain? It appears that improving operational excellence is going to be a critical measurement of success this year. While the remote/hybrid working model raised a storm during and after covid it now seems becoming a matter of the past. Where organisations are devising new methods to motivate employees to come to the office, employees are not interested in returning to the practice of working from the office. It may be a challenge for CHRO to streamline this process in sync with overall business objectives while keeping an eye on talent retention.
CHRO’s main task would be building crucial skills and competencies in the backdrop of the adoption of AI and other technology, the skills gap is to be identified and integrated into the learning initiatives in the operations. It gains more importance because most of the skill sets are new and no one is aware of the details of such skill sets. Re-skilling and up-skilling of the workforce would be on the CHRO table apart from others like digital transformation, enhancing employee experience, and preparing teams to manage crises.
The special feature of this edition is an attempt to rediscover the CHRO role and guide for the coming year to contribute effectively to improve overall business operations.
