The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).

Last week we talked about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies, and this week we’re going to talk about whether or not HR in the enterprise should be split into two branches.

In fact, one of the hottest topics being discussed at the C-suite level is whether HR should be split into two distinct functions – one that handles administration and one that manages leadership and organization. 

Research by Bersin by Deloitte supports the recommendation because HR is swamped with administrative tasks. In fact, nearly 50 percent of business and HR leaders surveyed said their companies are “weak” on preparing HR to deliver programs aligned with business needs.
The right technology enables HR to scale certain tasks in a way that humans never can, bringing efficiencies to a complex administrative process that can’t be achieved otherwise. 

HR needs to leverage this ability, so it can fulfill a critical role in the organization’s business strategy.

Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about whether HR should be split into two distinct functions with this week’s guest: Todd Owens, Chief Executive Officer at TalentWise.
