Global HR Update Q4 2020

As 2020 draws to a close, the HR community is reflecting on the challenges of the past year while anticipating the positive change that 2021 could bring. Among the themes we are seeing for the year ahead is the need to re-skill teams and what this might mean for both employers and employees. This is a common thread in our features this quarter. We also look broadly at the future of work and the opportunity for HR to drive unprecedented creativity and change given all that has been learned this year.
