Bersin by Deloitte Launches BersinOne to Help Close the Gap between Business Needs and Human Resource Capabilities

BersinOne provides targeted strategies and tools to help business and HR leaders conquer some of today’s most pressing and complex challenges

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 10, 2015 — Human resource professionals today face daunting challenges, including engaging high-performing workers and addressing a growing skills gap; a global survey of 3,300 HR leaders from 106 countries conducted for the “Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends 2015” research identified these as top issues. These are among the challenges Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP, is targeting with BersinOne, a new set of strategies and interactive tools to help HR leaders address critical HR challenges.

BersinOne builds on Bersin by Deloitte’s in-depth research with strategic planning, interactive benchmarking and diagnostic tools, as well as enhanced advisory services, to help clients tackle their most pressing HR challenges.

“BersinOne provides a bold new approach to address a widening gap between the needs of business and the capabilities of HR, as identified in Deloitte’s ‘Global Human Capital Trends 2015’ research,” said Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “That research showed that only 5 percent of HR and business leaders surveyed believed their organization’s talent and HR programs are ‘excellent’ and only 34 percent rate them as ‘good.’ The rest – about 61 percent – believe their HR solutions are barely adequate or falling behind. BersinOne was developed for, and in collaboration with, CHROs looking to take their organizations to the next level.”

BersinOne offers a practical approach to help HR professionals understand a challenge, prioritize activities to address it, develop a solution and measure the way that solution can add value to the business. This approach is outlined in “The Daunting Challenge of Human Resources Today,” a new report by Josh Bersin. Resources, tools, advisory services, and an online community of professional peers are all available through a new personalized information web platform designed specifically to meet the daily needs common to HR professionals. 

For example, BersinOne can help business and HR leaders close the gap in learning and development (L&D) by enabling them to learn about how their spending on L&D compares with organizations of similar sizes and in similar industries, and based on that information, quickly determine what steps to take next. 

Specifically, BersinOne provides: 

  • Bersin Blueprints are designed to help business and HR leaders directly address a particular talent challenge. New Bersin Blueprints to be published this month include:

          o “Improve Recruiter and Hiring Manager Relationships”

          o “Develop a Comprehensive Plan for Organizational Change”

          o “Invest in Continuous Learning”

          o “Build Organizational Capabilities to Support a Learning Measurement Strategy”

  • Interactive Factbooks: powerful tools that use data visualization technology that enable business and HR leaders to benchmark practices and expenditures against high-performing peers based on industry, size and maturity levels
  • Executive briefs written specifically for CHROs and business leaders to help translate key information about a specific challenge and suggest action to address that challenge
  • High-impact maturity diagnostics are research-based online assessments that identify an organization's HR capabilities and provide prescriptive recommendations
  • Member advisory services from a specialized team with the deep knowledge and skills to help members address some of their most critical human capital challenges, answer questions and provide thought leadership and insights related to the research

“Developed with information from member interviews, focus groups and CHRO feedback, BersinOne provides exclusive new resources to help business and HR leaders tackle some of their greatest HR, talent and learning challenges in a way that can have significant impact on their business,” said Jason Geller, national managing director, human capital, Deloitte Consulting LLP.

Andrew Huddart, general manager, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP, said, “BersinOne enhances the vast Bersin by Deloitte research library with action-focused tools and performance support materials to help members prioritize, design and implement leading-practice solutions in a timely manner.”
