HR Policy Association members have been at the forefront of changes in HR practices with people and culture a large driver of these changing strategies. Workplaces are constantly evolving whether due to emerging technologies, growing global economies, generational differences in workforces or unexpected events like the COVID-19 pandemic, requiring CHROs to evaluate their work not only in the present environment but also for the years ahead. Culture is a critical factor for a successful company and strong, inclusive cultures have consistently demonstrated to be crucial in hiring and retaining talent. Building company culture in a hybrid environment creates new challenges for CHROs and as more and more companies re-open under hybrid environments, many questions remain. Workforce transitions will also require employers to focus on investing in growth or reskilling opportunities through education and training programs.
The Evolving Workplace project will focus on addressing the following questions:
- What is the impact of the changes in how and where work gets done on the people doing and managing the work?
- What are the implications for organization structure, specifically how teams/groups function?
- What do the changes mean for an organization's culture?
- How will the changes shape how we identify and select leaders?
- What new or different skills will be needed?
- What will be the impact on worker wellbeing?
