Accenture releases report on Future Workforce Trends

Build a Great Company Culture with Help from Technology

Culture, and how to build and sustain one, is one of the toughest challenges for managers, especially in today’s fast-paced, highly competitive organizations. Every organization wants to create a culture that works from a set of core values, where everybody is on the same page about what’s important, where the company is going, and how it’s going to get there. But what happens when the external competitive environment — and the direction of the company — changes? And what happens as advances in technology constantly change how customers and employees expect to interact with your company? How do you manage the evolution of your company’s culture, and hold on to what makes you great, even as you change and grow?

Forward-thinking employers are giving employees the tools to influence and take responsibility for a variety of HR functions, while entrepreneurs are leveraging the cloud to build great products to accelerate this shift.

How To Use Design Thinking In Human Resources & Talent Acquisition

In most human resource and people departments, when we set strategy, we typically look at historical and backward facing data. This information, while important, doesn't give us the entire picture of how current employees will act in the future and it certainly doesn't give us an idea of what new employees will want.  Most of our decisions or bets are risky and are made based on intuition and instinct, instead of evidence.
