The nature of work is changing. The digital transformation is replacing and redefining jobs as we know them. In order to navigate the digital transformation organizations needs to understand how technology will specifically affect their job and work structure.
At this NOCA event we look into what HR needs to know about the Future of Work. The main question is how can HR continue to add value to the organization and secure a qualified workforce going forward?
How do we identify and create roles of the future?
Organizations are recognizing that the existing workforce structures have been disrupted by new technology and business models. These changes are enabling them to reshape the structure where humans and technology can work together. HR should focus on evolving job architecture to create futuristic opportunities for employees.
How do we enable our workforce to be future-ready?
Once the job architecture of the future is defined, the subsequent step will be to link the learning programs required to equip employees with the required capabilities to make them future-ready. Some of these programs may not be readily available, so this will require close partnership with the business to build out the learning curriculum. This needs to be HR enabled and business owned. This followed by a capability assessment of the incumbent workforce will help determine the efforts required to build a future-ready workforce.
How do we build career architecture of the future?
While we build the jobs of the future, it is important to provide employees with a clear understanding of what their role are in the future organization. Hence, building a career architecture that provides guidance to employees on what could be their growth paths is going to be a critical component for engaging employees to help transform organizations.
