Human Capital - The Last Differentiator

Human Capital - The Last Differentiator

Rooven Pakkiri | Social Business Consultant

We are now operating in a world where the commoditisation of IT is fast becoming a reality for the current workforce. And it will be totally non-negotiable for the future workforce. BYOD is rapidly becoming BYOA. In this brave new world of Internet 3.0, the playing field has shifted - company size and history is less important than responsiveness and agility. The now legendary story of Blockbuster's rejection of the Netflix offer to form a partnership is instructive. The way in which talent finds its desired company and the terms on which it wants to engage are evolving rapidly. Going forward the single greatest differentiator for a company will be its ability to consistently leverage the talent and knowledge of its workforce to the maximum. Companies who are bound by tradition and hierarchy will struggle to compete and many household brands will become obsolete.

In this presentation, Rooven discusses this shift and talks about how he is helping clients to transform the way they engage and empower their workforce with digital strategies based on ‘Social Learning’, ‘Talent Insights’ and 'Decision Sourcing'.
