For Hitachi Europe’s CHRO, Stephen Piece, building adaptability for tomorrow is a key organisational priority
Recent events have forced firms of all sizes to reconsider their key organisational and team objectives. For Hitachi Europe’s deputy managing director and CHRO, Stephen Piece, it has been a chance to judge what’s most important in HR and build mindsets that are equipped to deal with the challenges that lie ahead.
To that end, Pierce believes that a set of qualities will lead the firm into a brighter future, including: putting faith in teams to perform effectively, including turning disadvantages into opportunities; the need to secure professional wellbeing for all levels of the workforce on an ongoing basis; prioritising D&I and recognising the obstacles that can occur in the hybrid working model; plus, understanding that the demands of HR have shifted, and the need to communicate what this function of the organisation can accomplish.
