The traditional Human Resources space has changed significantly over the last couple of decades and will continue to change over the next several years, due to several factors, according to Anthony Onesto, culture expert and Chief People Officer at Suzy. Anthony believes that in order to attract and retain top talent in the future, organizations will have to adapt to Gen Z’s focus on a more equitable and socially responsible culture. There will also be more of a demand to use metrics to support and evaluate initiatives in the People space as well.

Here are my three big takeaways from the conversation:

  1. People are undoubtedly the most important asset of an organization, yet there is no representation of this asset on an organization’s balance sheet.

  2. Certain macroeconomic requirements plus the effect of Gen Z in the workforce will lead to the need for a stronger HR professional that will have a seat at the table.

  3. Understanding and demonstrating the impact on the organization’s business metrics will be essential for determining the need and effectiveness of any people initiatives, such as training.

I am so excited for the future that Anthony paints in this podcast!
