 The new normal in HR

Coming out of the economic downturn, the greatest challenge facing HR executives is adapting to the “new normal”, said Julie Staub, the Chairperson at the marcus evans HR Summit 2011.

“There has been a significant change in organizations worldwide, and our job is to help businesses respond and adapt to that. We have to be agile to ensure that our approach to talent is evolving to meet the needs of business today. This means operating in a leaner, more productive structure and capitalizing on the development of top talent,” commented Julie Staub, Vice President, Human Resources, AutoNation. 

Talented people are looking for growth and development opportunities in the workplace. HR has to identify such opportunities and help employees take their career to the next level.

“The demand for change is highand every organization must determine how it can re-engage the current workforce, especially as the market improves. As job opportunities become more prevalent, the challenge will be to drive engagement and retention in order for organizations to achieve their goals.”

“The outlook for HR is very positivebut, if we are not at the forefront of every issue, it will be a tough road ahead,” Staub concluded.

The marcus evans HR Summit 2011 will take place in Hollywood, Florida, October 17-18. The Summit includes presentations on retaining top talent, implementing a strategic, enterprise-wide performance management process and creating competitive advantage through HR planning.
