6. How can HR become more Business Relevant? Interview with Nick Holley, Director of Learning at CRF

We hear a lot about how HR needs to change, particularly in regard to becoming more digital and analytical and all to deliver greater business value. But how can HR become more business relevant? That's the topic for this week's podcast where my guest is Nick Holley. 

Nick has extensive experience. Not only in researching key trends in HR. He was voted the fifth most influential thinker in HR by Human Resource magazine. He also works with major global businesses, but he also has a background in senior HR roles as a partner at Arthur Andersen and a Director of Global People Development at Vodafone.

This gives Nick a highly focused commercial and practical outlook on HR. As well as running his own Consulting business. He is Director of Learning for the Corporate Research Forum. One of the largest HR networks in Europe where he runs open and bespoke in-company programs helping HR business partners, HR directors and Group HR directors become less HR and more business focused.  

In our podcast Nick and I discuss: 

  • How HR can prepare their organisations for a more ambiguous and disruptive world
  • We talk about some of the traps that HR tends to fall into when using data
  • We look at the characteristics required to be a successful CHRO and how that is changing
  • We also look into the crystal ball and ponder what the role of HR will be in 2025

This episode is a must listen for HR professionals looking to increase their business impact and position their organisations to be disruptors.
