I don’t know if it’s me or the industry in general, but every year seems to go by quicker than the last one – and 2017 was no exception. Let’s take a moment to catch our breaths and reflect on what we have experienced and what developments we have seen in the HR industry throughout 2017.
In case you are the HR department in your organisation, and in fact the very first HR manager. it’s fair to assume that your time goes to areas we already covered in the first three parts of this blog series: the basics, the annual HR cycle and the culture.
As HR strives to work more closely to business and increasingly embrace HR digitization in their daily work, the curiosity to master HR Analytics and Big Data is increasing, along with the need to identify key metrics and ratios on the basis of pre-defined HR reports.
The digitization of HR continues and increases in strength. I was fortunate enough to visit Traefpunkt HR last month, the largest HR fair in the Nordics, held annually in Copenhagen, Denmark. My estimate is that 80% of the exhibitors were in HR tech of some kind – a tell-tale sign as good as any.
