KPMG’s latest Future of HR report has exposed a clear dichotomy between action and inertia. Based on survey results compiled form 1,200 senior HR leaders globally, we’ve identified two types of HR function. Firstly, there are those embracing an agile and dynamic redefinition of the HR model, emphasising the new technologies such as AI and analytics as well as the critical new skills needed to succeed.

But there is also a second, larger group who are sitting idly on the sidelines as the scope and pace of change accelerates. Those that are acting decisively to anticipate and embrace change are driving the HR function as a value provider to stay ahead of the pack.

Our Future of HR Survey report, now conducted for more than 20 years, looks at:

  • What is the level of alignment between HR and the C-suite?
  • Moving employee experience to the top of C-suite agendas
  • Integrating human and digital labour in a collaborative workplace
