ON Talent, an invitation-only discussion hosted at Deloitte University where leading names in talent argued that the prevailing models of talent development no longer hold was held recently. New models like the corporate lattice that are better attuned to the times must be adopted or the risk of HR becoming less relevant is high was one of the key messages.
Throughout the two day event, the participants observed that businesses are belatedly recognizing the post-recession and forthcoming post-digital realities that are driving a critical need for change – both at the organizational and individual level. While some see the opportunity for renewal of “evergreen” talent strategies, others urged more radical change.
Some of the recommendations included:

As well, The role of HR/Talent Professionals has needed to shift to a more strategic and advisory role for a long time, partly due to the reality that so much work in business organizations is becoming automated by the use of technology. HR and talent leaders have a unique opportunity to redefine talent for these new business realities.
