SAN FRANCISCO, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation Resource Center for Human Resources (IRC4HR™) is proud to be a major sponsor of CHREATE, an innovative, open-source initiative that is accelerating the rate of change across the human resources function. The Global Consortium to Reimagine HR, Employment Alternatives, Talent, and the Enterprise (CHREATE) is the collaborative effort of a group of CHROs, academics, and other HR thought leaders focused on defining and enabling the future of HR.
Dramatic changes in the nature of work, the workplace, and the workforce all signal a need for a different kind of HR organization to enable them. Starting with the forces that are producing disruptive change in society, business, and work, the creative and highly motivated CHREATE volunteers have identified how these disruptive changes will impact the nature of work, workers, and organizations, and have translated that impact into implications for the future of HR. Project teams have been defining new roles, skills, and expectations for HR and using these to design the tools, processes, and practices that will enable winning organizations. These will be presented at the CHREATE Summit, May 17, 2016, which is being hosted by Twitter at its headquarters in San Francisco.
The power and potential of the CHREATE community to contribute to the future of the HR profession has attracted a growing number of industry leaders to commit their time and resources, as CHREATE project teams demonstrate the unique synergies that are possible when engaged leaders work together.
"IRC4HR is both a sponsor of, and participant in, the exciting work that CHREATE is doing," said Hal Burlingame, IRC4HR's board president and member of the CHREATE advisory group. "This is a unique opportunity to make a practical and impactful contribution to the future of the HR profession so that it is prepared to lead and serve the needs of organizations, workers, and society."
