The new world of work is characterized by digital disruption, the gig economy, a widening skills gap and a rush to prepare for jobs that don’t even exist yet. These factors and more are pressing to elevate HR into a more analytical, data-driven discipline.
“If your organization is not able to attract, develop and retain new skills, your business will almost certainly be disrupted,” warns Anthea Collier, managing director of Randstad Sourceright in Asia-Pacific.
CHROs in Asia are the forefront of these changes, looking ahead for new ways to survive and thrive in changing times. The norms of the past have been upended.

Read more in HRM Asia to understand the role of technology and talent analytics in helping CHROs drive this shift within their organizations.
