Argyle’s Human Capital membership was keen to hear from leaders in the space on pressing issues around technology, including the new HR function in the age of disruption, how new technologies are changing the role of HR, key technology trends in HR, leveraging technology for recruitment, HR leading the new social business, using technology to connect with the workforce, and using technology to develop a global brand.
The speaking faculty included Chris Casazza, SVP, Head of Global Human Resources & Senior Employment Counsel, Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.; DeRetta Cole, Vice President of Human Resources, Global Technology Operations, Turner Broadcasting; Louis Franzese, Senior Vice President, Labor Relations & HR Practices, The Hertz Corporation; Denise Lowsley, SVP, Global Human Resources Officer, Navigators Group Inc., Larry McClure, Senior Vice President Human Resources, Children’s Place Retail Stores, Inc.; Nick Perugini, CIO – Global HR Systems, GE; Debbie Pollock-Berry, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, XO Communications; and Melissa Wallace, Group Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Fast Retailing.
To tackle challenges HR faces today, leaders take advantage of growing HR technology trends. At the Forum, the room was asked to vote on “Which HR technology trend is the main focus for your organization for the remainder of 2013?”By the end of the day, 43 percent of the audience voted for “HR data management.” “Investment in software” followed with 19 percent of the vote, while “boosting engagement” and “recruitment” tied, each receiving 14 percent. 10 percent voted their main focus is on “’social’ performance management.”
Of the audience that voted, 22 percent of the executives polled represented organizations with $10 billion or more in annual revenue, while 21 percent represented organizations generating $5-10 billion, 36 percent from $1-5 billion, 10 percent from $500 million – $1 billion, and 11 percent from $100-500 million.
As organizations bridge gaps and integrate HR data and business data to reach company goals, HR data is being used more and more. With the help of these predictive analytics, Human Capital professionals have the ability to drive the corporate agenda and truly move the needle. Argyle Executive Forum recognizes this as an interest in the HR community and will be incorporating this topic into future forum agendas.
