What are the biggest challenges for Nordic HR in 2022?
More than 670 HR professionals from across the Nordics have given their views on the state of HR in 2022. At this event, NOCA and EY Danmark will present key takeaways from the survey and unfold the discussions behind them. We invite you to join us as we discuss some of our biggest challenges and opportunities in HR right now.
We will discuss the following findings joined by sharp guests from the private sector (to be updated continuously):
- How to handle hybrid work?
- How to secure HR’s role at the executive table?
- How to get People Analytics right?
How to handle hybrid work?
According to the Nordic HR Survey 2022, only 1 in 10 organizations expects to return to work life as it was before COVID. The benefits of hybrid work seem to exceed the challenges, but are we sure? Hybrid and flexible opportunities are an increasing factor in the competition for talent, however, indications of lower productivity, leadership challenges, lack of team coherence, and an increase in employee burnout are also part of the story. How do we mitigate between opportunity and challenges when it comes to hybrid work?

At this event Lars will give his perspective on new ways of working. What is important to consider in an agile and hybrid working environments? What are the implications for teamwork and leadership? And how do we find the right balance that benefit both the individual and the organization?
How to secure HRs role at the executive table?
The Nordic HR survey 2022 shows that in 8 out of 10 organizations the CHRO or equivalent is an integral part of the executive management team. The days of arguing the relevance of HR in strategic business seem to be over, and figures indicate that the pandemic has played a part in strengthening HRs role in the organization. However, now that we have a seat at the table, are we doing what we need to keep it? The survey findings indicate that HR might not currently have the competencies and processes needed to support organizations in change management, competence planning, and strategic outlook. How do we make sure that we are up to the challenge of supporting our organizations in the best possible way going forward?

At this event Nicole will give her perspective on what it takes for P&O to become and stay relevant on the strategic agenda. How do we secure the competences, processes and governance needed to link people and organizational development to the strategic agenda?
How to get People Analytics right?
Almost 75% of respondents in the Nordic HR Survey 2022 consider the HR function as having a high competency gap within people analytics. In other words, HR is not confident that they can ensure the data and analytics needed to support organizational development. The ambition to secure good data and analytics for strategic purposes is therefore at the top of HR’s agenda, and investments in HR software are equally high. However, what is the best strategy for increasing the people analytics competencies across HR? And, with the emphasis on securing business logic in HR, is there still room for people logic?
