HR in the moment: The changing expectations and perceptions of HR

Have you had a chance to catch your breath yet? Recent events have placed huge pressure on companies to pivot and adapt to changing priorities – and HR and People leaders have been at the forefront of this.

In fact, 72% of HR leaders say the recent crisis has helped them demonstrate their value, and increase understanding of HR’s role. However, whilst the c-suite and employees agree that HR has become more influential, this has been at the expense of a bigger workload.
