Having the right enterprise class business systems – financial management and HCM – is a vital ingredient in the high-growth company recipe. The business systems that help a company during its early stages of growth will likely not be adequate when it moves to 500+ employees.

Growing companies are subject to frequent change – entering new markets, delivering new services or products, organisational changes, mergers and acquisitions – and HR has a key role to play in facilitating the organisational agility required to cope with these changes.

Workday recently sponsored the People Management webinar ‘How can HR lead the way for growing companies?’, where Chris Roebuck (visiting professor at Cass Business School), Richard Doherty (senior director, product marketing, at Workday), Jackie Wilson (people services manager at TalkTalk) and Kathryn Heywood (director of HR operations and resourcing at TalkTalk) gave their perspectives on growth and HR.

If you weren’t able to attend the webinar live, register to listen to the on-demand version to learn about:

  • The importance of data-driven decision-making to improve employee engagement, which is essential in times of change
