Together with the Chief People Officer at the LEGO Group, I spent much of the first quarter of 2021 thinking about whether traditional approaches to HR were still fit for purpose and what the function might need to change to serve the business’ needs more effectively. After explorative dialogues with other HR leaders and influential thought leaders, we decided to transform the LEGO Group’s People, Operations & Development function and unleash its inherent potential. The transformation was centered around three core drivers of future HR success, and each of them has now been put into practice. We have pivoted from centers of excellence to communities of excellence, developed digital product management capabilities within HR, and introduced a central pool of people partners that can be deployed in a flexible manner based on strategic priorities and business needs at any point in time. The transformation has required limited structural re-design within the People, Operations & Development function. Instead, we have focused on unleashing the potential of our setup by shifting ways of working within HR and with the business to achieve the responsiveness and impact that we set out to deliver.Book You Ticket
