It's a time of accelerated turbulence for HR and HCM. We have witnessed a year of changes nobody could have predicted, and a rapid uptake of modern technology solutions to make engagement and care possible in a remote-working world. Human Capital Management (HCM) is the complete set of practices for recruiting, managing, developing and optimizing the human resources of an organization. With the competition getting tougher and the supply of talented industry-ready graduates decreasing, it is not surprising to see the increasing demand for capable HCM Consultants.

However, there are altercations which won't stop with the end of the pandemic, or with a return to the workplace. We've all learned we can accomplish our work just as well remotely as we can onsite and that means remote working should now be seen as part of the norm for HR which means re-imagining the way we approach every step from pre-hire to the end of an employee's time with the organization. One of the most significant sectors of change are likely to be learning and development. Several companies have already invested in tools that make training, upskilling, and re-skilling possible in a remote world.
