HR 2020 - a New Vision

Hi everyone, I encourage you to look ahead to the year 2020. What do you see as the challenges and priorities for your HR Organization? In the last 20 years, we have seen a multitude of challenges. In HR, "challenges will tax our collective abilities to deal with them" (Peter Senge, Dance of Change, 1999, p3).

What happens if we fail to rethink HR? What is the risk if we do not explore new ways to learn, manage, operate, and change? Does your company have a vision for 2020? How will your HR organization deal with the changes created by recent world events (e.g., 2017 US Presidential Election, refugees in Europe, 2008 economic meltdown and current recovery)?

I am looking forward to your insights and comments. Thanks.

Leverage THICK Data

Any visioning exercise requires making sense of the real world and looking at all the available data. HR IT systems focus on BIG data, the quantitative stuff that reports about the past.

Rethinking HR means including THICK data in the mix. As per Tricia Wang, THICK data is data that is brought to light using qualitative, ethnographic research methods that uncover people's emotions, stories, and models of their world.
If a company doesn't have some sort of "Human Sensor Network" to capture stories, it's time to rethink HR. Otherwise its perspective of reality is insufficient.
