What does Adaptable HR look like in practice?
The Adaptable HR operating model improves productivity. When complemented with a robust HR technology strategy, the results are amplified. The traditional view of fixing the HR operating model first, then looking at HR technology, is no longer appropriate.
Adaptable HR organisations will need to think of both their HR operating model and technology together. The very concept of adaptability, in today’s corporate environment where skills and technology are constantly evolving, requires the capacity to shift both at the same time.
Organisations can complete their HR transformation by updating both the HR operating model and HR technology with discipline to ensure complete satisfaction.
Moreover, Adaptable HR organisations embrace agile principles and philosophy. This is reflected in ways of working that maintain a human (employee) centric approach, where employee experience and sense of belonging is crucial to success.
Successful organisations closely align on employee experience and business value by making the connection between strategy and an individual’s contribution. All this while applying other agile principles and practices, such as the use of design thinking to solve various challenges.
These empower teams to co-create and collaborate across functions, introduce transparency of data and results and the use of technology (including artificial intelligence, machine learning) to automate and be fast and the “good over perfect” approach to secure incremental improvements.
