Digital is quickly evolving from “a way” of operating to “the way” work gets done. Technology is only part of the story, an enabler rather than the end goal. Digital enterprises understand this distinction, exhibiting these eight traits to mature from simply doing digital to being digital.
One of the four shifts for the future of HR
It’s a changed world out there, and the future of the enterprise, the workforce, and how work gets done demands a new future of HR. We’re exploring each of the four shifts HR needs to make to step into the future: mind-set, focus, lens, and enablers. Today we’re tackling the mind-set shift needed to adopt new traits, behaviors, and ways of working for thriving in the digital age. It’s more than just doing digital things like creating apps or adopting digital technology and automation. It’s about reshaping an enterprise’s culture to act with agility and collaboration.
For the first time in history, technology is pervasive enough and cheap enough that everyone is using it with little or no learning curve. So how can businesses adapt and keep up? Deloitte Digital is talking Digital DNA with our resident experts.
We’ve been having many discussions in recent years about various disruptions affecting all businesses—but what does this all mean for HR? Now more than ever, HR is being asked to take the lead on behalf of the enterprise in making shifts and changes to thrive amid constant disruption. One of four major shifts HR must make to prepare for the future is to help the enterprise build a digital mind-set—from doing digital to being digital. Why? Because it’s critical to addressing three very different futures affecting all of us: the future of enterprise, the future of the workforce, and the future of how work gets done. Nobody is better positioned than CHROs and HR leaders to take the lead in preparing themselves—and their enterprises—to thrive in this new world of work.
