Future of Work
Fast-moving, important trends are impacting the world of work around us. Technology is rapidly transforming our jobs and, to stay relevant, new capabilities, mindsets, and behaviors are required from our workforce. These trends can be challenging, but they also provide rich opportunities for those who know how to take advantage of them. In these modules, you will learn to prepare the workforce for the future, how to respond to the Digital Agenda and how to design HR processes to generate profit for the business.
Digital HR Strategy
To keep the digital transformation in HR on track, we need a well-defined Digital HR Strategy. This course teaches you to think strategically about leveraging technology to drive value for the business. You will learn how to build a Digital HR Strategy, how to implement it and to manage the stakeholders involved. Your digital strategy will be more than just a vision. It will be a detailed blueprint for the digital transformation.
Design Thinking in HR
In today’s competitive environment, you can gain a much-needed advantage by turning your knowledge of your employees into actionable insights on how to better attract, retain and develop your talent. In this course, you will learn how to use the design thinking process to create employee-centered HR solutions, tools, and processes. By iterating through the process, and measuring the results along the way, your end-solutions will tackle problems in the best possible way.
HR has always been about people and, in the digital era, this is more important than ever. Employee experience (EX) is crucial for the success of any company. By being employee-centered, you can start focusing on the touch-points and problems that matter. This way, you can improve their experience and, in turn, increase your organizational performance. In these modules, you will take the first step in understanding your employee experience by mapping an employee journey!
Digital HR Transformation
Digital transformation is as much about a mindset shift for HR, as it is about the increased use of Technology. To take advantage of the opportunities afforded by emerging business models, ideas and technology, HR needs to adopt new capabilities, new skills and a new understanding of what will make people productive in the future. In these modules, you learn what success looks like for forward-looking HR professionals and build the foundations to achieve it.
With the capstone project, you will be applying your learnings to create a series of practical deliverables such as an implementation plan for digital HR, a stakeholder map, digital agenda, and an employee journey map.
