    Future-proof HR - Entrepreneurship and Innovation

    Future-proof HR - Entrepreneurship and Innovation

    In episode 3, host Frédérique Van der Heyden discussed the topics of Entrepreneurship and Innovation with expert Gunter Loos, practitioner Peter Daels and student Toon Chaerle. In this podcast, the guests discussed the role of both the employee and the organization in driving innovation. It was highlighted that HR has a significant role in facilitating innovation and entrepreneurship by creating an organizational culture that encourages and supports employees to develop and implement their ideas.
    However, the guests concluded that it was eventually up to individuals to keep innovation alive within the organization. In terms of innovation, every organization must have a long-term vision and should be prepared to continuously innovate their processes, services, and products to remain competitive.
    The importance of entrepreneurship, which is a human quality, was also pointed out as being equally important as innovation in exploring new opportunities and developing new products or services. As a result, the guests came to the agreement that HR plays an essential role in innovation and that HR practitioners within organizations should be able to identify individuals with innovative talents, for instance people with a strong entrepreneurial mindset or skills and develop them to drive innovation within the organization.
    Finally, the impact of age on innovation was also discussed, highlighting that the younger generation may have an advantage with their knowledge and experience of digital tools. However, this does not mean that older generations are not capable of innovation, but it is up to the organization to create an optimal environment in which innovation is nurtured amongst all members of every generation.

    Future-proof HR - Values & Strategy

    Future-proof HR - Values & Strategy

    In episode 2, host Yasmine El Alji invited expert Geert Vercaeren, practitioner Edwin Schenck and student Nobonita Chowdhury to shift the focus to values and strategy. In this episode, the guests discuss research that indicates that the differences and expectations between different generations are relatively minimal and that these are influenced by other factors such as an individual’s personality, education, work experiences, and geographic position. This means that stereotyping the values of many generations can be risky and harmful for organizations and it does not facilitate cross-generational collaboration on the work floor.
    Therefore, it is important for organizations to recognize the differences that are present and leverage them to achieve innovative solutions, increase performance, and deliver better products and services. However, these differences can often lead to challenges in collaboration due to unconscious dynamics. As a result, it’s crucial for organizations to create an optimal environment and culture that values diversity and develops leaders who can serve as role models in empathy, open dialogue, and building trust. This will help to minimize the negative impact that generational differences can bring.
    On top of this, organizations that focus on a single generation or that are single value-based, will not achieve the same outcomes as those that welcome diversity and find methods to bring people together for a common purpose. Thus, it is essential to foster an inclusive environment that stimulates collaboration between different generations, enabling them to work together effectively towards a shared goal.

    Future-proof HR - AI and HR Tech

    In episode 1, host Charlotte Plouchard will focus on AI and HR technologies. She goes into conversation with expert Lesley Vanleke, practitioner Michael Hahn and student Julia Ehrentrant. They discuss the ways in which technology is transforming the HR industry and what this means for the many generations on the work floor. They go over the many benefits of HR technology and AI, but also deep dive into the dark sides of these new tools.
    Furthermore, the guests also discussed the potential risks and challenges of using AI in HR. In fact, there is a need for professionals to deeply understand their domain and the tools they use to ensure the ethical and responsible use of technology. In this podcast, the risks associated with AI discussed were mainly about potential biases due to historical data and loss of control over information fed into the algorithms. Moreover, the importance of making the right choices when selecting AI partners and ensuring they have done their homework was also highlighted. This is necessary to carefully evaluate potential partners to ensure that they share the company's values and priorities and have a deep understanding of the domain and context. Overall, the podcast discussed the potential benefits and risks of integrating AI and HR tech in day-to-day HR operations.

    kritische vriendschap - Ode aan de HR consultancy - Prof. Dr. Peggy De Prins en Bieke Van Gool

    Met deze podcast, bestaande uit 4 afleveringen, brengen we een ode aan de duurzame HR-consultancy. Telkens staat er 1 ‘must have’ centraal. Ons doel? Studenten, professionals en opdrachtgevers inspireren en inzichten aanreiken die hen helpen om duurzame partnerschapsrelaties uit te bouwen.

    Als je de vier must haves uit onze podcasts erkent en toepast in de praktijk, wordt duidelijk dat HR-consultancy een eervol metier is met bijzonder veel toegevoegde waarde voor de klant en de business én ook een metier waarin met heel veel HR-passie en voldoening kan worden gewerkt.

    Centrale vraag: wanneer en waarom werkt HR-consultancy in de praktijk? En nog: Wat maakt HR-consultancy tot een eervol metier?
