51. The Future of HR with Dave Ulrich, Brigette McInnis-Day (Google) and Rupert Morrison (orgvue)

Welcome to the first episode of series 11 of The Digital HR Leaders podcast. As I wrote in my annual list of HR predictions for 2021, which we covered on last week's episode, the pandemic has thrust the Human Resources function into the spotlight. All eyes are on HR. Some have likened the pivotal role the CHRO is playing in this crisis to that played by the CFO in the global financial crisis. Undoubtedly HR has a unique role to play, but how does the function shift towards generating value for the business, the customer, the workforce, investors and the community at large?

We decided to bring an esteemed panel of three experts together to debate the topic. Firstly, Brigette McInnis-Day Head of HR at Google Cloud, where she focuses on attracting and developing amazing talent and shaping the culture for business growth and transformation.

Secondly, we have Dave Ulrich, Professor at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and co-founder of the RBL Group. With his colleagues, Dave has written over 30 books that have shaped the HR profession, defined organisations of capabilities and shown the impact of leadership on customer and investors.

Last but not least Rupert Morrison, who is leading the way in data-driven organisational planning as CEO at orgvue. He has also authored a Chartered Management Institute shortlisted book of the year on data-driven organisational design.

In our conversation the panel and I discuss:

  • The impact of the pandemic on organisations, employees and HR
  • How HR can be more value and business focused
  • The skills that Google looks for in its HR business partners and how Google measures its culture
  • The impact of the pandemic on workforce planning, organisational design and people analytics
  • What HR can do in 2021 to capture more value for the business

This episode is a must listen for anyone interested or involved in HR and how it can create value for the organisation. So that is business leaders, CHROs and anyone in an organisation design, people analytics or HR business partner role.
