Every good company knows that it is crucial to keep up with new trends. Sometimes, those new trends require transformation.
To be successful, you need to know when’s the time for your company to change and evolve. That is the only way to get better at what you do, keep your employees happy and also attract new talents.
HR Week is the perfect place to start with. The biggest HR conference in Europe, offers a good deal of lectures, panels and expert talks on TRANSFORMATION!
KEY CONCEPTS ABOUT TRANSFORMATION WE’VE HEARD LAST YEAR AT HR WEEK:
1. FUTURE-PROOF YOUR PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
Transformation and performance go hand in hand. During HR Week 2021, one of the most insightful lectures was the one from Tijana Kovačević – Global Head of People and Org Development at Wise. Working with their stakeholders, they use a Performance Consulting Approach. Tijana said that the key is to recognize the problem at hand. Only when you find the root of the problem can you help your employees improve their performance.
There are 6 performance improvement factors for enhancing individual, group and organizational performance:
- physical resources
- capacity (wellness)
If we take the time to go through each of the stages with our employees and actually listen to them, there would be less conflicts in the future and their performance would be improved to a great extent.
2. TRANSFORMING PAPERWORK INTO APPS – HOW TO INCREASE QUALITY AND SPEED?
Mirko Djukić – Director of BMM Consulting, talks about HR digitalization. His company is a partner with Zoho – an Indian multinational technology company that makes web-based business tools.
That partnership is very important because, together, they made a platform that helps people who work in HR all around the world. With Zoho, you can strategically manage HR operations, develop talents and build a thriving culture. You can access the app from any location, you can even have it on your phone. This means having everything in one place, which means you are no longer going to be buried in paperwork!
“Using Zoho means that you can now focus on employee development, talent management, knowledge, skills and much more.”
With this platform, HR jobs can be much easier, faster and more productive.
3. TRANSFORMING AND SCALING L&D
Another amazing speech was delivered by Debora Gallo – Head of Talent Development at Wiz, where she spoke about scaling L&D.
Considering she was working at a huge company like Netflix where she and a colleague in Los Angeles were the only L&D experts, Debora is an expert when it comes to L&D!
In her speech she shares 3 key things she learned about scaling L&D:
- know the business and build relationships
- be a connector
- know when to level up your scrappiness
She says that out of the three, the most important thing is to know the business and build relationships.
„Things move quickly, so you need to have a pulse on who’s who, where’s the business going, to be able to anticipate those pivots and changes, which is very difficult. Also, knowing who’s who is starting to build your web in helping you scale L&D.“
4. THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR LEADERSHIP TRANSFORMATION
Alan Žepec is the founder of LQ. In his thought-provoking speech, he spoke about the Integrated Learning Program for Leadership Transformation.
The purpose of the integrated learning program is to help people do their job better, be more successful and feel good about their well-being.
In his speech he pointed out 7 mistakes we make when creating a learning program:
- Owners idea: the illusion of the one who knows all
- HR idea: the illusion of independence
- No alignment with a strategy: the illusion of the “Field”
- Training maps: the illusion of the autonomy
- Module and then nothing: the illusion of knowledge acquisition
- Changing suppliers: The Illusion of diversity
- Fancy (agile, design thinking, digitalization…): the illusion of new trends
