Shifting Talent Requirements for HR Teams

Data and analytics are being used not only to inform business decisions, but in the hiring process, giving HR more presence at the executive level.

‘Digital’ has also moved from being a specialist HR role to a basic requirement. HR leaders need to transform their digital offerings but take a leading role in the wider digital transformation taking place across the business.

Overall, our ChapmanCG team have been seeing plenty of shifts within the talent requirements for HR. Watch the full discussion in our latest video.
