The global pandemic has accelerated the digital and technological changes that have emerged during the ongoing Fourth Industrial Revolution. Organisations are focused on embracing change, evolving their businesses through digitalisation, technology and data analytics. To achieve these goals sustainably and effectively, they must acquire new, high-demand skills and nurture those who demonstrate them.
As part of our Transforming Engagement series, in partnership with the Reward & Employee Benefits Association (REBA), we explore how businesses are transitioning to a future that sees humans, technology and machines increasingly working side by side. Our latest report in the series highlights the innovation and creativity such dynamic collaboration can foster. It also emphasises the care and investment needed when it comes to the people element of this collaboration to ensure the workforce is fully engaged and prepared for change, not harmed by it.

Processes and systems alone won’t be the winning factor — it’s the people who apply and execute them that will create the competitive advantage. Which means a firm’s digital and people strategies must be aligned.
