Welcome to the Work Talk video series! Our first episode features Workday's Ashley Goldsmith and Leighanne Levensaler discussing the importance of strong employee engagement, any why it's critical for today's businesses.
At HR Tech World in London, industry expert Josh Bersin spoke about the impact of the “new digital world of work,” and how it forces us to think differently about how we lead and manage our organizations.
Retailers have made big investments in systems to support omnichannel strategies, yet it's just as important to focus on the people side: talent, training, and skillsets needed to support omnichannel efforts.
Data-driven HR is as much a journey as a destination. “You will always find something there that you didn't know," says Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte. Find out more in the final installment of our four-part Josh Bersin video series.

Last week I joined Ashley Goldsmith, our chief human resources officer, in an all-hands Workday HR team meeting. One of the topics we spent time on was the state of the talent market. Most economic reports take a generally positive outlook on 2015, including a job market that’s considerably better than years’ past. This sort of news makes all of us happy, but it also has hiring managers and HR team members everywhere thinking about how this rebound will impact hiring plans and competition for talent. Here are three trends I shared with the team, as well as my thoughts on how all organizations should think about addressing them:
At Workday’s 7th annual Predict & Prepare, a panel of industry experts discussed how individuals and organizations should best prepare for 2015 in the areas of finance, human resources, and technology. While they didn’t agree on everything, panelists did find areas of common ground. Chief among them was the growing opportunity to use data to gain insights.
Today is Veterans Day, a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who have served in the armed forces to protect the freedoms so precious to us. As a country, we must do all we can to support returning veterans’ efforts to find challenging and rewarding employment. It’s a fight that needs fighting: 188,000 veterans that served after 9/11 are currently unemployed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The good news is that technology and data can be used to help address this problem—an effort that we at Workday are passionate about.
