The time for modern HR development initiatives is now
“The only thing that is constant is change,” says Morten Jakobi, Executive Vice President, People and Culture at Dustin. “The world is changing fast and so are the wishes of our customers. Businesses and HR simply have to be able keep up.”
Jakobi has seen the way changes affect employees as well. “People have a vast array of different career paths to choose from and the average length of careers within a company is becoming shorter with new generations entering the job market. At the same time, people are getting more stressed,” he says.
When Dustin started working with Sympa in 2016, they had no HR system in place. What Jakobi did have, however, was a clear vision: “I think the first step for HR when approaching any change or development projects is to actually define what to develop. Only then can you continue with the manner in which to develop and what aspects to prioritise – in other words, the how.”
