Episode Description

The buzz: “While efficiency…is important…[the HR] function has to think of itself as "talent consultants" not "service deliverers.”” (Josh Bersin, Forbes.com) HR evolved in Europe during the Industrial Revolution from an idea by Robert Owen and Charles Babbage to structure, organize, pay and develop the people who lead and execute on business strategy. Fast-forward. The advent of technology and the need to scale have management evaluating HR with a focus on efficiencies, more than people. Now the workforce is demanding HR put the ‘human’ back into Human Resources. The experts speak. Tim Aldrich, EY: “If I went to work in a factory, the first thing I would do is to join a union” (F.D. Roosevelt). James Sinclair, EnterpriseJungle: "Success is 1% inspiration, 98% perspiration and 2% attention to detail" (Phil Dunphy). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “if it doesn’t make the world a better place, don’t do it” (Kid President). Join us for Humanizing HR: Is Technology the Answer?
