Is HR Still Viable in the New Digital Age?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Many have been challenging the role of Human Resources (HR) in the new workplace, as more technology takes over what HR professionals have traditionally done. The whole entire employee life cycle with an organization is shortening, and there is a trend to managers being more HR savvy. We also now have predictive analytics, digital onboarding and career planning. How do HR practitioners add value in this digital age? We contend they will be needed more than ever, but some of the old industrial and bureaucratic practices of the past must be updated or thrown out all together. This week’s show will explore with Neil Reichenberg, the Executive Director of the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), who will offer his perspective on the changing role of HR and what HR professionals must do to stay current in an ever-changing field.

Neil Reichenberg serves as the chief executive officer of IPMA-HR and is responsible for the overall management of the association. He is in his 38th year with IPMA-HR and his 22nd year as Executive Director. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland and New York Law School.

 

 

The Human Revolution is Here – Are you Ready?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Is all this talk about AI and robots making your head spin? It is ours. Today things are happening so fast it’s hard to know what jobs are in, what are out, and what industries are going to survive. But one thing is for sure – humans will always be a necessity as we move forward into this world of data and technology everywhere. So what can we do as humans to stay relevant in this tsunami of change? We focus on our unique humanness. We are thrilled to have as our guest this week the preeminent Tom Peters, author, professor, and consultant who is best known for his groundbreaking book In Search of Excellence. We will be talking about Peters’ latest insights into how the unprecedented digital revolution is driving a profound and deep human revolution. This should be a fun, informative and lively show. Join us!

The Excellence Dividend, written by Tom Peters, available April 2018.

Tom Peters is coauthor of In Search of Excellence—the book that changed the way the world does business, and often tagged as the best business book ever. Seventeen books and thirty-five years later, he’s still at the forefront of the “management guru industry” he single-handedly invented. What’s new? A lot. As CNN said, “While most business gurus milk the same mantra for all its worth, the one-man brand called Tom Peters is still reinventing himself.” His most recent effort, forthcoming in April 2018, is The Excellence Dividend: Meeting the Tech Tide with Work that Wows and Jobs that Last. Tom’s bedrock belief: “Execution is strategy—it’s all about the people and the doing, not the talking and the theory.” In November 2017, Tom received the Thinkers50 Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

 

 

Are You Still Doing Leadership Development You did 20 Years Ago?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

The world is moving fast and getting faster. How you build human capacity has to keep up with the changing times and trends. Old methods may still work, but you need to infuse your learning approaches for the new context of the rapid response workplace. Today more than ever you have to co-create and co-curate learning to confront the current reality. This is not a nice to have approach, but an essential one to keep learning relevant. Joining us on this week’s show is Nigel Paine, author and consultant with vast experience in learning leadership and technology. Nigel is a change-focused leader with a worldwide reputation and a unique grasp of media, learning and development in the public, private and academic sectors.
