  8. 8. Introduction & Overview<br />In considering the Future for People management and HRMS, there are hundreds of influences, but three interrelated focus areas which will spearhead medium term change are:<br />Personal Awareness<br />Working Environment<br />Tools and Technology<br />These focus areas are being influenced by changes in<br />Health: The desire to know more and manage myself better<br />Globalisation: Diversity, Talent Chasing, Concept of Work <br />Innovation: Ubiquitous tools, Networking, Consumerism <br />
  9. 9. People – changes in life<br />Social Networking is causing ‘HR System Turbulence’, but it’s becoming mainstream<br />“Health & Lifestyle is a big issue – and people want to measure it!”<br />It doesn’t only include physical health but also mental health : “feeling”, “mood”, “motivation”<br />74% people include ‘feeling good’ as part of health<br />An estimated 500 million people worldwide are expected to use mobile healthcare applications by 2015<br />There are over 17,000 apps in major Apps stores currently, with more that 60% being aimed at consumers rather than health care professionals<br />The heaviest users of Health care Apps are the 18-29 age group<br />
  10. 10. What are people measuring ?<br />Uncomplicated things:<br />Heart rate<br />Blood pressure<br />Workout time<br />Food intake (Caffeine, Calories, Alcohol)<br />Medication usage<br />Occupations & hazards<br />More complex measurements:<br />Moods & Feeling<br />Stressful periods<br />Sleep patterns<br />Measurement is becoming easy and automated<br />
  11. 11. What's driving the growth of these tools<br /><ul><li>Driven by modern day sensors
  12. 12. Cheap, less than $1
  13. 13. Going into many different devices
  14. 14. Can store an enormous amount of detailed data and information </li></li></ul><li>Types of Devices<br />Just a few years ago !<br />Fitbit<br />
  15. 15. Types of Devices<br />Asthma Tracker<br />
  16. 16. Feeling & Moods<br />‘HealtheHuman’<br />Personal health Databases not dissimilar to Performance Management Systems – they set targets, they measure performance and offer solutions and guidance<br />
  17. 17. All this data is being stored<br />National Health<br />My Doctor<br />Lifestyle measures<br />Simple measures<br />Education History<br />Bladder & Bowel<br />My<br />DataBase<br />Sleep tracker<br />Occupation History<br />Body Measurement<br />Exposure History<br />Event tracker<br />Stress tracker<br />Schedule History<br />Medication tracker<br />My Employer<br />
  18. 18. Hold these thoughts on Personal Measurement<br />
  19. 19. Work Environment Challenges<br />The ‘World of Work’ is continually changing to adapt to the business environment, but often to the detriment of employees<br />More and more change is being triggered by People (Talent) issues<br />The rise of the “i-Pros”*<br />The concept of a workplace<br />The nature of work patterns<br />The subtle and incremental changes on people lives, caused by the work environment is becoming visible <br />*reference Gartner<br />
  20. 20. Some features of our work world<br />By 2016 – 43% of the workforce will work remotely. Productivity increases by 15%<br />Most Heart Attacks happen on Monday Mornings<br />1 in 3 people work on week-ends, 62% check work e-mails<br />Staying late at work<br />Mondays…Tuesdays are the most hated work day<br />Taking work home<br />Stress !<br />40% of people take work home or work overtime<br /><ul><li>20% of Australian workers work > 48 hrs per week</li></ul>Living to work<br />88% of people say they have a hard time juggling work and life<br />1 in 4 people can’t go more than 2 days without checking e-mail<br /><ul><li>People smoking marijuana perform better on IQ tests than those distracted by email & phones</li></li></ul><li>Changes right down to the “CORE”<br />The balance between FTE’s and i-pro’s (Independent Professionals) is changing.<br />Currently make up about ~ 20% of the workforce<br />Expected to grow to 40%-60% by 2030<br />i-Pros roles are becoming highly attractive<br />Overall satisfaction with lifestyle at 7.3 out of 10<br />Sense of freedom, flexibility, variety of work, shorter hours<br />Wellbeing measured at 7.8 out of 10 (proud, happy, enthusiastic)<br />Commitment to current client & perceived support from current client<br />Down to 6.2 out of 10 <br />*reference Gartner<br />
  21. 21. Growth in Self Measuring will impact employee status choices<br />Insight and awareness provided my measurement will drive life decisions<br />Talent Strategies will start incorporating external and internal measurement to ensure Strategic Workforce Plans are attainable<br />Employers will need to compete with ‘lifestyle’ option that are being measured, and will be drawn into new work based types measures<br />i-pro<br />FTE<br />
  22. 22. The Nature of Work is Changing<br />The demise of Routine:<br />Value is not added by people doing process that can be automated<br />Growth will be seen in work that is non-routine, analytical and requires interactive contribution (innovation, teaming, leading, selling, learning)<br />People are creatures of Habit, and like some routine – the reduction of this will bring about new types of stresses and work behaviours<br />
  23. 23. The Nature of Work is Changing<br />Work Swarms<br />Traditional team work will continue with people who are know to each other and it will attract reward<br />New ad-hoc teams (swarms) will grow in popularity. Teams that form quickly, are agile and quickly dissipate. The ad-hoc team will displace structured, bureaucratic situations<br />Swarms won’t necessarily know each other and could be colleagues and i—pro’s – Network tools will help support this need to know others<br />Non Routine work and ‘Work Swarming’ will fuel the i-pro role<br />
  24. 24. The Nature of Work is Changing<br />Informal-x groups<br />Groups that are not controlled by your organisation, but can have great impact<br />Have a common objective or interest<br />Knowing how to interact with the group and influence the key players in the group is vital<br />
  25. 25. The Nature of Work is Changing<br />Simulation & Predictive Modelling<br />Greater use of tools that make use of multiple dimensions of data based on peoples usage of data<br />The complexity of our work and global environments will see the growth in identifying and managing divergent patterns<br />
  26. 26. Hold these thoughts on The Changing Work Environment<br />
  27. 27. The Changing HRMS<br />A resurgence in the capturing if People Data <br />HR/other systems will adapt & expand to include the recording and sharing of new types of data<br />The ‘recording’ and ‘sharing’ activities are likely to be quite different, involving negotiations over ownership of data<br />
  28. 28. I own my data...but perhaps we can share<br />The concept of “My Personal” data bases will continue to grow<br />Personal measurement database sites, Social Network Tools and SaaS storage spaces are driving the creation of on-line personal databases<br />Employees & i-pro’s will want work data pushed out to their personal databases to improve their self awareness & understanding, whilst employers will want employee ‘personal data’ pulled in to support ‘Talent Management’ initiatives and to improve working environments.<br />
  29. 29. Core HR as we know it, is disappearing<br />The notion of a Core HR system traditionally implied source data and ownership – future data will be owned by companies, employees, i-pros’, other external bodies with the source being in many different places. <br />The new ‘Core HR’ data system will be co-owned and co-managed, becoming an exchange rather than a data repository<br />
  30. 30. Functionality and User Experience<br />Continual expansion of Analytics capabilities <br />Ability to exchange data in sophisticated ways both internally and externally<br />Concepts such a Performance Management will incorporate ‘My Personal Data’ and lines between work & life continue to blur<br />Greater incorporation of multi-media and use of recognition software – implying a dynamic and individual user experience<br />HR system interaction will no longer remain transactionally oriented, but will incorporate ‘health & wellbeing’ and other inputs to interact with you in a dynamic way.<br />
  31. 31. Finally a Glimpse of the HR UX Experience<br />After completing my morning health routine, my data is synchronised with my personal data base – which in turn is feeding selected data to other data bases, including my current, temporary employer<br />I walk into the office, and the billboard I pass recognises me – it access the HRIS and identifies any ‘red flags’<br />The system realises I have a heavy schedule and realises I've missed eating breakfast – I have a history of being moody and unresponsive if my blood sugar level drops too low<br />The Billboard pulls up an ‘Advert’ for the company canteen, showing my favourite breakfast snack is available – and that there are 4 left. <br />I walk up to the billboard, and hit the “Order and deliver to workstation” button, an “Accept Payroll deduction” button appears, which I touch. <br />As I walk down the passage, I send a voice message to the HRIS via my i-phone 6+ asking for an additional team member to join the 10:00am meeting – In particular I need someone with Marketing skills – I receive 3 options to choose on my i-phone. My linked-in account provides suggestions based on previous work experience externally. I choose Peter !<br />
  32. 32. Questions<br />
  33. 33. Key Points to Take Home<br />Just and Social Networking has and continues to change the way people behave, self measurement, starting with Health will drive new behaviours in the workplace requiring new data recording and sharing<br />The work and home place will continue to blur, with changes fuelling new employee choices<br />The future HR system will be more of an exchange and will offer new and exciting user interfaces.<br />
