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.
