The Evolution of HR

The Evolution of HR

A look at what organizations needs to achieve their HR transformation goals and key considerations to keep at the forefront.

The Evolution of HR

It’s a brave, evolving world for Human Resources (HR). Roles are changing, expectations are rising, boundaries are blurring, and organizations are charting new and more complex territory. These factors are transforming the HR function and positioning HR professionals as strategy partners at the leaders’ table.

HR transformation has been a long time in the making. In recent years, it has been accelerated by workforce trends (e.g. telecommuting and mobile workforces) and generational challenges. It has also incorporated the rapid advancement of automation, cognitive processing and artificial intelligence (AI). The impact of increasing regulatory burdens along with their security, fraud, and risk implications has also been felt.

The Evolution of HR report is the Canadian point of view to KPMG Global’s HR Transformation Survey report. We look at what Canadian organizations need to achieve their goals and important influencing factors – the technology, the people and culture, risks, data & analytics, digital labour and disruptive technology fatigue that all come into play.
