Human capital leaders are a new frontline for most organizations. They are being called to pivot quickly under great pressure and stress, and as we continue to navigate uncertainty and rapid change, they are at the forefront of organizational and individual responsiveness. In Skillsoft’s Leadercamp on Responding to the Pandemic: 10 HR Practices That Drive Results, Bersin will detail the findings of his research on how HR leaders and their organizations have responded effectively to the pandemic crisis that continues to disrupt our lives and work.

Following a detailed benchmark study involving approximately 1,400 HR professionals, Bersin’s team has identified the ten practices that have highest impact on seven business, organizational, and workforce outcomes. Equally applicable to companies of all sizes and industries, the insights shared during this Leadercamp will illuminate strategies to improve in areas such as employee engagement, cultural continuity and transformation, workforce planning, and organizational and individual agility and resilience. Bersin will also share the four stages of pandemic response revealed in the research and provide recommendations about how organizations can further improve, transform, and build resilience to effectively navigate for uncertainties ahead.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has forced HR and human capital leaders to develop new competencies and pivot quickly under immense pressure and stress,” stated Bersin. “HR organizations have traditionally been designed to be efficient, but now they must also be agile, consultative, and interconnected with other enterprise functions, such as IT and finance. This shift enables HR to add more value, but it also requires a massive change in approach, architecture, and skills development.”

Bersin is a renowned thought leader focusing on the global talent market and the challenges and trends impacting business workforces around the world. He studies the world of work, HR and leadership practices, and the broad talent technology market.

Designed to empower participants to drive transformation and resiliency in their departments and throughout their organizations, this Skillsoft Leadercamp is a leadership development experience for all leaders in all areas related to human capital, including human resources, talent management, learning and development, diversity and inclusion, and organizational effectiveness. Attendees will leave with valuable insights and recommendations about how they can help their business become more resilient for whatever the future holds.
