“What we’re doing in HR now is more important than what I’ve seen in my 20 years as an analyst. HR has an essential role in the new world of work,” Bersin said.

A new world of technology

Bersin discussed the enormous impact of technology within these new working climates, explaining that he’d been in the technology industry for most of his career. Bersin also indicated that the three key areas of HR in need of development are; technology and AI, how we attract talent and then retain it, and also productivity and wellbeing.

A new future of work

To enter into this new and very changeable world of work, Bersin advised leaders to take a deeper look at five ways in which they can improve the overall working experience for employees:

  1. A new organisational structure 
  2. Reinventing management 
  3. Employee experience
  4. Career overhaul 
  5. Embracing technology
