Global human capital management (HCM) consultancy, Smart WFM, has appointed Rob Scott to the new role of global lead HCM & Behavioural Technologist.
It follows a consistent YoY doubling of Smart WFM’s revenue, staff and customers over the past two years and its expansion into Asia and the US.
Joining from Deloitte, where he was a principal in the Consulting Human Capital Practice, Scott brings over 30 years’ HCM, human resources (HR), innovation, strategy and advanced technology experience, working directly with businesses and technology leaders including SAP and Oracle.
He previously served as global lead for Strategy and Innovation at Presence of IT before Deloitte acquired it, and spent four years on the HR Technology Advisory Board of the Australian HR Institute (AHRI).
Jarrod McGrath, founder and CEO at Smart WFM, said: “Businesses have been quick to adapt to a new workforce reality, but slower to align technologies to their bottom lines and needs of their people.
“We see this mismatch all the time – widespread underpayment issues, industrial relations disputes, debate over awards systems, inefficient workforce processes, and issues will continue and worsen until there is a mindset shift among businesses.”
He added: “Rob brings a wealth of experience in opening up this mindset and improving communication and collaboration from the coal face through to the shareholder. We’re confident we can continue to grow and help organisations get real visibility over their entire workforce and HCM tools when they need it most.”
