The future of work arrives early: How HR leaders are leveraging the lessons of disruption
Oxford Economics and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) partnered with SAP SuccessFactors to understand the emerging realities facing employers and employees—and next steps for leaders in 2021 and beyond.
As the contours of the post-pandemic workplace start to come into focus after months of ongoing change, companies around the world are bracing for even more disruption.
