Megatrends for HR
Peter Cheese, CEO, CIPD opened his talk with the statement: “the nature of the world we live in has never been more changeable,” and the imminent trends within HR being, ‘the uncertainty of the economy, technology/digital movement and also demographic of the workforce’.
Quoting a headline from the Evening Standard that read, ‘HR must up their act if UK is to succeed’, he emphasised the need for change within the industry, sharing that 15% of total employment today is self employed. Peter also revealed that highly skilled jobs have accounted for a 71% rise in employment.
Peter closed his presentation with: ‘We can’t change behaviour by writing rules, so don’t force people into boxes,’ – which proved a hugely popular quote among our tweeters.
