Business HR Academy: HR Training For Business Impact

Training HR business partners to develop core capabilities

Today’s evolving marketplace and workforce has made the need for building capabilities a strategic growth imperative. Competitive forces, the rise of data, the changing workforce, and technologies such as robotics and AI are the disruptive forces that have sharply changed how we live and how we work, and organizations are looking to HR to reimagine the future of work, the workplace, and the workforce today. To keep up, more than half of today’s workforce will need to build new capabilities in the next three years. Will you be left behind?

The evolving role of HR

Throughout the history of Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends research, building capabilities has been in the top 10 trends organizations are focused on and invest in. The nature of work and the workforce has required new capabilities from HR. Given these changes, many organizations are actively seeking ways to build the capabilities of the workforce, with the role of HR taking center stage. Today, chief HR officers and their teams face a unique set of leadership challenges—including exponential expectations of HR beyond its traditional role of supporting functional, administrative, and compliance tasks.

Exponential HR leaders must be able to drive innovation and agility through workforce development; and to foster team collaboration, engagement, and productivity. On top of this, they also must lead the enterprise’s readiness for constant disruption. To address these evolving demands, HR leaders need to infuse advanced, digital solutions that automate and simplify the workforce experience and—most importantly—elevate the role people play across the enterprise and within HR.

To help ensure no organization is left behind, Deloitte helps prepare HR leaders for the future of work with Business HR Academy, powered by AdeptPro.
