Future Insight: Responding to Trends, Threats and Opportunities – Meeting Review

In today’s highly complex world, it’s becoming ever more difficult to predict how our marketplace might evolve, and how we should respond.

At our event on 22 January 2020 we explored why traditional approaches to imagining and planning for the future are no longer fit for purpose, and what alternative ways of preparing for an uncertain future might be more effective. We consider how HR might build organisation capabilities for sensing and responding to a changing environment.

The event featured:

  • Margaret Heffernan - author, broadcaster and former CEO.
  • Dr Kris De Meyer, neuroscientist from Kings College London
  • Dan Barnard, Artistic Director, fanSHEN
  • Sarah Gillard, Director of People Strategy, Insight and Assurance at John Lewis Partnership

These post-meeting notes include a summary of each speaker's segment as well as video interviews.

Developing a Strategic HR Approach

Developing a Strategic HR Approach is a research report that looks to apply the principles of social science to HR practices, to determine what factors make a difference and under what circumstances. We don’t believe in “best practice”, which implies one size fits all, but we seek to identify good practice and define a set of operating principles that apply under most circumstances. Our view is that the business circumstances and conditions should influence HR’s approach fundamentally.
