Creating a Common Vision of Digitalization for the Business and HR

There’s no doubt that digitalization—the use of data and technology to enhance existing products and services, improve channel coordination and performance, and optimize enterprise activities and processes—is a pressing business issue. Eighty-seven percent of executives agree digitalization is a priority for their company, yet only 27% of senior executives have a cohesive digitalization strategy across the enterprise. The lack of a cohesive definition of, and strategy for, digitalization presents a major opportunity for Chief HR Officers and other senior HR executives to create a common understanding of digitalization with their business leaders and craft a corresponding talent strategy to help their CEO.

Consideration of context in leader selection and development has become increasingly important. Companies and vendors alike are working to integrate context into their leadership programmes; however, considering nearly 50% of all leaders fail to meet their objectives after moving into a new role, the methods used to define and apply context in decision-making are highly variable and unproven.

Recruiting in the Digital Enterprise

Accordion1

To remain competitive, organizations across industries are digitizing their business models, service delivery, and operations. This digital transformation places strain on the recruiting service delivery model, which is challenged by symptoms of digital change like increasing variation in requisitions, greater volatility in hiring volume, and unrealistic hiring manager expectations. The current service delivery model not only fails to fill critical talent roles quickly; it also cannot sustainably support the long-term digital transformation of the enterprise given flat budgets and staffing.

The best organizations are redesigning their Recruiting service delivery model to quickly fill critical talent roles for a business in digital transition, keep pace with hiring needs in an era of accelerated change, and better match emerging talent needs with shifting labor market supply.
