Deloitte and Columbia Collaborate for Free Online Course that Charts Impact of Workplace Trends

Disruptive changes in digital technology and workforce demographics across the globe are rendering the business landscape unrecognizable – and companies are struggling to keep pace.

In a joint effort to help business and HR professionals around the world grapple with the rapidly evolving workplace, Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies is now offering a free open online course with market insights from Deloitte, which will inform business leaders about the human capital trends reshaping the HR and talent landscape.

The online course’s curriculum is based on the findings of Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 report, which took the pulse of 7,000 executives across 130 countries and identifies the most significant HR trends impacting organizations. The top finding of the report uncovers that while 92 percent of organizations see restructuring as a critical priority to meet the demands of digital technology and the speed of innovation, only 14 percent of executives believe their company is ready to effectively redesign their organization.

The course, which can be completed online at your own pace, delves into each trend through a series of video presentations. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a certificate. The preview course is open to all and geared toward HR and other business professionals. Course participants will learn the implications of these trends for the workplace and how their organization can address each effectively.
