HR Evolution: What is shaping the growth of HR in Asia?
Human Resources, till a few years ago, was looked at as just another function. Thanks to emerging technologies and the changing dynamic, HR today has become an integral part of the business from the peripheral role it started off with, helping in compliance and data management. Digital transformation accelerated by several macro and micro changes has brought back the ‘human’ aspect in human resources. Evolving employee preferences, changing customer expectations, and newer rules and regulations have reshaped work and talent management.
In today’s world of ever-evolving skill demand, HR leaders are facing the twin challenge of engaging employees and finding the right talent that has led to innovations in how they hire, upskill, and retain employees. The global pandemic further accelerated the rate of workplace disruption.
Today, organizational agility and employee experience have become two primary drivers of HR evolution. The priority is to build a future-ready workforce that is engaged while being skilled and productive to face rapid business disruptions. To meet the needs of agility and experience, the way ahead is to empower and evolve.
From adapting to newer technologies in the hybrid world to addressing demands of creating well-being programs for employees, HR is taking newer dimensions to help businesses attract, engage and retain the right talent.
