This trend of “becoming” means organizations—and their talent departments—must be more agile. An Accenture report found that CEOs list becoming agile as their number three business priority. And to compete in this fast-changing world, says the report, “HR will fundamentally reshape itself so that the function becomes a critical driver of agility. In this role, HR will enable a new type of organization—one designed around highly nimble and responsive talent.”
Beyond being agile, HR must prepare leaders, workers and HR systems for this new world of perpetually upgraded work.
