What Are 3 Key Trends In the Next Generation of HR Design?

February 15th, 2017

There are three key trends in the next generation of HR design, according to an expert in HR disruption, who says HR needs to be more focused on building competitive advantage through a more agile approach to talent management.

“The first trend is the move away from HR business partner to account manager,” said Lucy Adams, CEO of Disruptive HR and ex-HR director of the British Broadcasting Corporation.

“Given HRBPs are both scarce and expensive, account managers can undertake the strategic and commercial parts of the role, with a pool of HR generalists and technical experts who deliver.”

A second key trend is focus away from centres of expertise towards the employee experience, said Adams, who recommended the EACH model (Employees as Adults, Consumers and Human beings) as a good approach.

The third trend is about building capability, not just compliance, Adams said.

“This is a fresh response to a disrupted world where the abundance of employment policies and rules often stifle innovation and increase frustration,” she said.

Each of these trends relates to important aspects of talent management, and Adams observed that there are many factors that have shaped HR’s approach to talent management over the years.
