It’s not a question of IF – It’s a question of WHEN!
Change is Inevitable
In today’s ever changing marketplace, everyone knows there will be changes. Changes to your career, changes in your management team, changes within your organization.
Having spent the better part of 10 years in the recruitment world, selling recruitment services, as well as placing executives in new roles, the one thing I have come to realize is that change is inevitable.
What I am seeing now in the healthcare market, and in different industries as well, is a wholesale shift in process and procedures in organizational workflows. What do I mean by that? Mostly, that organizations have traditionally been very slow to make changes to the core functions within the architecture of their organization. Today, I see that it still takes time for organizations to make significant changes, but when they do decide on the direction they are moving, the change comes fast and in broad strokes. They are not just changing one piece at a time. They are making significant HR and financial transformations.
As mentioned here by of Workday – there are dramatic changes to healthcare and the reshaping of one of the biggest industries in the United States. Cloud-based Technologies, Mergers & Acquisitions, as well as a serious Focus on Talent and many other shifts, all are responsible for the rapid pace and deeply-felt urgency in a risk-averse marketplace.
The Efficiency of HR
There is also a shift in how efficient HR is becoming. This is brought about by, yes, Technology – but even more change. Traditionally, HR is even slower to embrace change as they are not considered a profit center. With certain technology, HR departments can now show not profitability, but how with data, human resource departments can now be a source of cost savings.
The Shift is Coming
So it really isn’t a matter of if your organization will be making change, but when.
And when they do, are you going to be one to help bring it!
