Human Capital is the fundamental source of competitive advantage
Creating sustainable economic value today demands careful Human Capital Management: in an economy characterized by cheap financial capital, it is the key lever to use to make new ideas materialize. In this context, two sets of strategic questions need to be addressed:
What do we expect from Human Capital Management?
Value creation target: What do we expect from increased efficiency of HR functions and improved Talent Management?
Operational excellence: Do we have the best talent and teams to execute on our strategy?
Efficiency: Should we engage in digitization and automation of our activities and how far?
Growth and innovation: What new roles and activities will create additional value?
Is HR equipped to reach its objectives?
Is HR positioned and equipped to design and drive a strategy to reach these goals?
Is our Talent System focused (on key populations) and optimized?
Have we re-engineered our HRBP role (strategic and operational)?
Do we have and know how to operate adapted HR IT? Do we have an HR analytics approach?
Are new organizational approaches needed (agile, community, open organization, …) and are we ready to deploy them?
