July 23, 2020 Cindy Keaveney

The COVID-19 crisis has hugely impacted the global business landscape and the workplace. What are the key trends that human capital leaders need to know to help lead their companies forward in a post-pandemic world? What role do they play in their organizations’ future?

“... human capital leaders are more crucial to their organization’s well-being than ever before,” said Cindy Keaveney, chief people officer of Randstad Global Businesses, in a new report, “Talent Trends, COVID-19 & the future of work.” They need to address pressing issues “such as safely operating in a post-outbreak world … and informing and responding to the C-suite’s recovery plan.”

Meanwhile, human capital leaders cannot lose sight over workforce challenges such as talent scarcity and skills gaps. And as the business landscape continues to evolve, building an agile workforce that can respond to any market changes is key to organizational success.

“Companies will have to prepare their workforces to adapt to unpredictable market conditions in the future,” said Keaveney. “To do so will require embracing HR technologies that provide greater insight and the flexibility to deploy talent quickly based on demand and market factors.”
