Fujitsu Global's Jason Fowler on defining organisational priorities

Jason Fowler of Fujitsu Global outlines why leaders need to be able to define organisational priorities to compete in a disrupted market

It’s clear to all HR leaders that organisations are operating in a disrupted market, leading to a rise in remote working, dramatically altered forecasts and uncertainty over the time ahead.

However, it’s important to recognise the differences between organisations; for instance, a technology startup in the west doesn’t face the same opportunities and challenges as a legacy brand in the east. As such, beyond the wider trends, it has become vital for leaders to better define key organisational priorities while strategising, or else risk falling behind the competition.

Jason Fowler, Fujitsu Global’s VP, HR Director UK & Head of HR Northern & Western Europe, joins the HRD Live podcast to outline the importance of acknowledging and resolving organisational priorities. Fowler includes factors such as devising a credible future of work strategy, building on the benefits of flexible working, factoring in unforeseeable influences, and aligning organisational priorities with employees’ priorities.
