Yet, we hear little about what truly differentiates high-impact organizations and the programs they employ to create a sustainable competitive advantage as compared to those organizations that seem capable, but are unlikely to adapt to a breathtakingly blurred and changing world.

The evolved organization is born of an environment with radically different assumptions than were true even just a decade ago, and is built within an ecosystem characterized by agility, collaboration, ideation, innovation, client centricity, empathy and psychological safety.

In this article, published in the March 2018 issue of Workspan magazine, John Bremen and Amy DeVylder Levanat share CHRO perspectives, coupled with data from Willis Towers Watson employer and employee research, to provide an insightful view into ways that organizations are approaching the opportunities ahead.
