Voor de volgende breakout sessie heb ik gekozen voor Prof. Dr. Armin Trost ( Author, Consultant and Professor at Furtwangen University ). Hij gaat een big picture praatje houden met als titel: The Agile Future of HR and Talent Acquisition. Ahhh… agile… het modewoord van dit decennium… En wat te denken van de aankondiging van zijn praatje:
Human resource management in the 21st century will have little to do with what has been promoted in recent years or decades and written in the text-books. Instead of finding “the right people, at the right time and at the right place” we will make the employees and their individual preferences, talents, life plans, and ambitions the focus of attention.
We will say goodbye to mechanistic, technocratic, and often bureaucratic approaches. They fit in a past that was stable and predictable. If you regard your employees as your most valuable asset, you will give them freedom, trust, and responsibility. Moreover you will appreciate individuality and individual life-plans.
Human resources management will therefore deal less with hierarchical processes, systems, responsibilities, KPIs, etc., in the future. Rather, it will be about how to empower teams to think on their own responsibility, communicate, collaborate, learn, and develop their talent in the long term.
HR-Technology will be there to make the life of managers and employees easier instead of supporting the HR-function only. For instance, in the area of recruiting all this will lead to a more intense usage of social networks, artificial intelligence, big data, data mining etc.
Ik ben benieuwd hoe dit in een half uurtje valt te proppen.
