With people costs typically accounting for 75% of GBS budgets, employees increasingly feel their managers are interested only in meeting cost control targets set by their Leadership from remote Head Offices. With millennials challenging current HR policies and practices; rampant poaching of top talent; and systemic wage inflation, it’s time for a radical rethink of the GBS employee value proposition. At this keynote, you’ll learn why attracting digitally literate talent actually begins after the job offer has been accepted; why more money rarely retains your high performers; and how to de-stress the workforce when advances in automation and process reengineering trigger headcount reductions. With Leadership rarely meeting their teams face-to-face nowadays, these actionable strategies will help you preserve and grow the value of your greatest assets - individual human beings.
