Public Sector HR 2017: Building “Next Generation” HR for a “Next Gen” Public Sector
Shaw Centre •
Prepare yourself for a major rethink of public sector HR design and delivery.
In the last decade the public sector has seen major changes to their workplace, workforce demographics, and the nature of work. These changes are expected to continue. We’ve seen budget cuts impact the ability to deliver service, and at the same time, we've seen a demonstrable pressure for the public sector to invest in new technologies to ensure it keeps pace with citizen expectations and private sector competition for talent.
What is “Next Generation HR” and why now?
A new generation of public servants is reaching critical mass as they take on increasingly responsible roles. While some skepticism may be justified about overstating the impact of generational differences, there is no denying this new generation brings a new set of expectations to organizational cultures. The combined generational and technology shift is resulting in organizations becoming more open, citizen-centric transparent and less hierarchical. Is your public sector organization ready?
This generational shift provides the backdrop to what we are characterizing as “Next Generation HR”. Deconstructing HR practices to meet these new organizational needs that include:
- Data driven—Increased focus on data and analytics to support decisions. This requires both an investment in technology, skills development and a change in mindset as analytics busts some long held myths and supports new ways of working that maybe go against the norm.
- Digital—No one expects the workplace of tomorrow to be less connected than today. HR needs to respond.
- Diverse—We mean this in the broadest sense. Not only is the workforce increasing in diversity in the traditional sense, but greater focus needs to be given to inclusion – to everyone being recognized and respected and valued for their unique contribution. The world is simply too complex to expect rigid hierarchies to cope.
Discuss solutions to common challenges with other public sector HR leaders. Past attendees have always valued the breadth of sessions at this conference—and while we can’t cover everything we do cast a wide net. Don’t miss this unparalleled opportunity to meet the innovators and discuss the latest issues with the experts and your peers.
