The global pandemic has transformed the way in which people work. The sudden onset of homeworking only served to dramatically accelerate the wider trend towards digital transformation that was already prevalent in modern organisations, as well as the growing trends towards flexible working and pay propositions.

It’s down to senior HR leaders to address these new people challenges, which are essential to solve in order to achieve real business growth. Yet there also remains a need for heads of HR to deliver on the core priorities of the workforce, ensuring people are engaged, inspired and empowered to achieve their best. A solid operational and tactical HR and payroll foundation is essential if HR leaders are to deliver, rather than becoming embroiled in inefficiencies, costs and compliance issues. 

Read this People Management Insight expert report, produced in partnership with SD Worx, as we set out to demonstrate how getting the HR and payroll foundations right frees up senior leaders to focus on delivering a culture and organisation for which people will want to work, paving the way for success in a fiercely competitive talent marketplace and wider business landscape.
