Eric Horwitz, PeopleDoc’s VP of Partnerships, attended the Virginia SHRM state conference, and presented “Revolutionary HR: The Do's and Don'ts of Marching Forward”.
Eric asked the audience to think about the past, present, and future of work. He spurred their memories and their imaginations by playing clips from movies set in the past- such as 9 to 5, movies set in the present- such as the Devil wears Prada, and movies set in the future- such as The Matrix.
He then asked, is your HR dept responding to the changes currently happening in the workplace? Are you ready for the future of HR?
Together, Eric and the audience of HR professionals thought about how they could adapt and prepare for the workplace of the future. They listed 3 things to stop doing, and 3 things to start doing.
HR should automate processes, so that they have more time for strategic activities. Also, by using dashboards to monitor key performance metrics, they can identify problems before they become larger issues.
