1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Business Acumen, Global & Cultural Effectiveness | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Learn how to make strategic decisions regarding which core global HR activities you will continue to do; which activities you should stop doing because they no longer add value; and which new innovative activities you need to introduce. 

The world of work and the working is changing at a rapid place due to of the 4th industrial revolution that is underway all over the world. As a result, the needs and expectations of today and tomorrow’s global workforce are changing as well. Companies, organizations, and global/local HR need to respond to these workers’ expectations and have a serious look in the mirror with regard to their current practices. The core message of this presentation is that the current traditional and familiar HR practices are no longer sufficient and must get an extra dimension to evolve to a more “progressive global HR.” HR must develop and bring in house a stack of competencies—often from other management disciplines—to augment HR. This session reviews the new world of work, the disruption of HR, the associated competencies that are part of the SHRM BoCK,TM and is illustrated with examples of progressive HR best practices in different parts of the world.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how HR is being disrupted globally because of changes in work and the worker.
  • Review and apply the four anchors of the #ZigZagHR model to day-to-day HR practice.
  • Identify SHRM BoCKTM required of progressive HR practitioners.
