The Digital Transformation Of HR

Posted by Mathew French on 12 June 2018

Digital transformation isn't just ubiquitous, it is ultimately unavoidable. Twenty years from now, few aspects of the world of work will have escaped the digital revolution. But what exactly does it mean for HR, and how can such transformation be successfully implemented, both within the HR department and organisation wide? What we're really talking about here is a change management process. A process which HR Professionals and business leaders are often being called on to execute in a new and constantly shifting context. Not since the third Industrial Revolution has there been such a significant change in the way we work, meaning that lived experience of this type of quantum leap in workplace practices simply don't exist in boardrooms and leadership teams. That's why resources such as i-Scoop's 'Online Guide To Digital Business Transformation' are so valuable. The guide offers a highly educational deep dive into what digital transformation is, what it requires of businesses, and how to implement such transformation successfully.

Storytelling And Onboarding: The Recipe For A Happy Marriage

Posted by Mathew French on 31 May 2018

If you've heard any of the news about the Financial Services Royal Commission, it is pretty clear that these businesses don't do a very good job of conveying and embedding mission-critical concepts (like ethical behaviour) into their organisation. Communicating the values of your business, and illustrating the culture of your organisation to both potential and actual employees is one thing. Ensuring that those values aren't just paid lip service, but become lived experiences at ALL levels within your organisation, is definitely business-critical in today's marketplace. If the interrogations and admissions of the Royal Commission are anything to go by, it is clear that there is such a wide gap between words and actions in business that something needs to be done. But what? Our last couple of Blog posts have focused on the importance of getting Onboarding right, and the untapped benefits of storytelling for HR. In this Blog, we will explore how you can use the power of story as part of your Onboarding process to set the right tone for the expectations your business has about 'how we do things around here.'

HR and The Art of Storytelling

Posted by Mathew French on 22 May 2018

Despite decades of work with clients large and small, Murray Nossel, founder of Narativ, understands through experience that there might always be skepticism in the corporate world about anything that seems 'touchy-feely.' And yet, if ever there was an organisational department that deserves a 'get out of jail free' pass on the touchy-feely front, it should be HR. However, HR Professionals tend to shy away from being seen as touchy-feely in an effort to gain more legitimacy within the business. In a world increasingly driven by data and metrics, soft skills like the touchy-feely art of storytelling go A LONG way to balancing the technologically driven environment workplaces have become (and will become more so going forward). To all the HR Professionals out there reading this post, consider this your opportunity to get all touchy-feely AND to drive positive change in your organisation through storytelling.

Research Based Evidence For Best Practice Onboarding

Posted by Mathew French on 10 May 2018

One of the great things about providing a service for so many organisations (and the employees of those organisations) is that we get to hear first-hand feedback about what HR Professionals and the teams they serve want and need to make work better. What has become abundantly clear, and increasingly critical in the world of work, is the importance of the onboarding process in setting up new or transferring employees to understand, enjoy and succeed in their new role. We recently proposed that 'how you do onboarding is how you do everything,' and that got us thinking...

Posted by Mathew French on 12 December 2017

It's that time of year, when everyone is thinking about new beginnings. The impending new year offers an opportunity to hit reset, course correct or take a completely new direction. Starting a new job is a significant new beginning and for new starters, how your business does Onboarding is a reflection of how you do everything.
