Last year saw an unprecedented shift to remote work, which has been a disruptive force when it comes to talent and workforce management. This new reality presents a host of new challenges for HR and talent consultants, who are in essence writing the post-pandemic playbook in real-time as companies adjust to this major change. To help organizations navigate their way around the new working world we all find ourselves in, PA Consulting has hired organizational consulting and change management expert Radhika Philip as a partner in its people and talent practice. Consulting sat down with Philip to discuss her new role, the changing talent landscape in the profession, and how firms are looking at culture with a mobile workforce.
Consulting: What will be some of your top priorities for your new role? What specifically do you consider your mandate?
Philip: A priority for 2021 is to expand and augment PA Consulting's capabilities in organizational, workforce, and workplace transformation, so that we can provide seminal insights and meaningful support to our clients. Technological advances and disruption in business models are constant and unrelenting, and the path forward is not always obvious. Our objective at PA is to be ahead of what we anticipate our clients will need. We are investing heavily in accelerating our cross-disciplinary learning and experimentation, to position us to conceive of multifaceted approaches to solve client problems not just for today, but for tomorrow and further into the future.
