Highlights from Josh Bersin’s 2017 HR Tech Conference KeynoteArticles L&D
This year’s HR Tech was an amazing learning experience for the Pathgather team. Check out a few pics of our team in action on the Expo floor.
For those who didn’t make it, we wanted to share the highlights from our favorite presentation with Josh Bersin, principal analyst and founder of Bersin by Deloitte. The session was titled, “Digital HR: A New Architecture for Technology” and did not disappoint.
Disruption is here. 90% of organizations surveyed by MIT and Deloitte anticipate their industries will be disrupted by digital trends. However, the problem isn’t technology. It’s a people problem. We don’t have the right people with the right skills.
We are in a period where we are buying technology, but don’t know how to use it. Since 2011, productivity gains have slowed down significantly.
Employees are already being pulled in many directions and have a myriad of distractions (phone, email, etc.). As a result, employees are overwhelmed.
We don’t know what is going to happen yet, but we need to watch and figure out what is going to work.
Organizations are transitioning from rigid hierarchies to agile structures. Many of these tools break down walls and cilos. They are team-centric and cross-functional. The tech vendors that will succeed focus on unlocking hidden value in the organization and mobilizing it across teams.
Many organizations are anticipating some degree of robotic automation that will have a substantial impact on talent, and many believe it will create better jobs. However, in 65% of companies HR is not part of this conversation. HR needs to understand emerging technologies to stay relevant, and deliver strategic value.
The good news the HR Tech market is exploding. It is a great time to get educated because everything is being reinvented.
We to use rate vendors by features. Now the real importance is, will people use this software? Do employees like it?
You may be thinking all of the systems have converged, but the average number of systems of record has increased from four to seven in one year! No one wants to throw away legacy systems, but investment in new areas like learning and analytics is increasing.
The market is emerging. Many of the parts plug and play with each other.
Mobile and video learning is booming. Most of it takes place outside of your LMS and classrooms.
Micro-learning is here. Your people need short bursts of learning to help them solve an acute problem.
The corporate L&D landscape is changing rapidly. Everyone is talking about continuous and digital learning, but intelligent learning is right around the corner. It’s time to disrupt your L&D program.
We are all trying to figure out what our next job is going to be and how learning can get you there.
There was a dark time in learning, but the light at the end of the tunnel is here. There have been many advancements in the last 12-24 months.The tools are here, and its time to buy.
