Audio: Anthony Abbatiello on the one skill that every HR Professional needs to remain competitive in today’s HR environment.
Anthony Abbatiello, a strategist and HR thought leader, has done extensive research on the global trends shaping today’s workforce. To succeed in the future, he says, HR will need to be more agile, more attuned to global labor relations and able to adopt technology on a grand scale to stay ahead of changes. “Supported by new and emerging technologies, HR has the power to expand talent sourcing, improve workforce performance, increase employee engagement, develop and retain high performers, and drive top- and bottom-line results,” Abbatiello says.
Key Trends in 2015 The four key disruptors of HR technology will be social, mobile, analytics and cloud. Social continues to play an increasingly larger role across talent management practices. Mobile will transform the employee experience to be more consumer-like. We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of analytics, which will provide more real-time and predictive support. Lastly, HR professionals will take full advantage of the low-cost cloud applications and use them to leapfrog the technology advancements of the last 10 years.
His AdviceIdentify the two to five metrics that drive your business and then understand a one-on-one correlation for each of those metrics supported by HR. Then figure out exactly how HR technology can help you achieve those results. Once you identify your HR technology strategy, it’s important to get senior leadership buy-in so they understand it’s not just a cost, but an important investment.
How He’s Making a DifferenceI’ve traveled to 19 countries over the last 18 months, and it’s clear from conversations with leaders everywhere that they recognize the need to continue the evolution of the HR business but struggle to know exactly how and where to begin. I believe I’ve made a difference by sharing a vision of the future and the strategies they should consider for their organizations and industries.
