Boston Consulting Group: Global HR trends

Conferencia | Spanish

April 17 OF 2018 from 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Today’s HR executives face the challenge of providing value added in an unprecedentedly uncertain scenario where the one thing is for sure: the way of working in ten years’ time will be unrecognisable for today’s executives. To deal with this challenge, HR departments must become more resilient and acquire the capabilities necessary to lead the evolution of organisations and help them define their strategies.

We would like to invite you to the ESADE Madrid campus (calle Mateo Inurria, 27) on April 17th 2018 at 19:30 for a discussion about the role of HR in this new scenario with BCG experts, and:

-    An analysis of global trends and the best HR practices pinpointed in the 2018 BCG survey ‘Creating People Advantage 2.0’
-    Strategic Workforce Planning: an approach that situates the HR function as a strategic business partner when planning the future of an organisation



Welcome and introduction
Joaquín Cava (Lic&MBA 91), associate professor in ESADE’s department of general management and strategy.

Jean-Michel Caye, Sr. Partner & Managing Director, Global HR, Talent and Leadership Leader of The Boston Consulting Group
Pablo Claver, Partner & Managing Director, Leader of the People and Organization area in Spain and Portugal of The Boston Consulting Group

The Boston Consulting Group has been carrying out the Creating People Advantage project to analyse global HR management trends in different countries. The empirical studies carried out by BCG over more than 10 years to pinpoint the best practices in HR management have undeniably enabled many companies to develop a competitive edge based on people. We invite you to be part of this international online community of managers.

A BCG Fellow since 2011, Jean-Michel’s research topic has been talent. He believes that the so-called "war for talent" has reached unprecedented levels because of global aging and economic development—and the solution must come from building, not buying, new talent. His goal is to determine the ingredients for creating a successful approach to building talent

Prior to joining BCG in 1998, Jean-Michel was director at Hay Group, responsible of the reward and pharmaceutical practices in France. He led several HR and organization cases in the fields of sales force effectiveness, reward policies, competence assessment and development, reorganization, and culture change. He also has experience in the IT service industry.
