"We're not HR, we are People Experience"

For a fast-moving HR consulting company like Circa Logica Group, digital transformation has come fast and furious. So has their HR transformation.

As you'd expect from a fast-moving, forward-thinking HR firm like Circa Logica Group, it is always looking at transforming itself. "There's a huge amount of change happening, in businesses and in the way we work. And what that translates to is that the workplace needs to evolve and how we do work," Joana Marzan, Senior Partner for People Experience, said.

Whether it's digitalization, AI or robotics, technology is changing jobs, teams and organisations. Circa Logica Group is making sure its partner-employees are ready for that change. To help make the future-proof, it focuses on four areas:

  • Talent agility – to move from where work is to where it will happen tomorrow
  • Continuous learning mindset – staying mentally agile
  • Teams and leadership – how teams work, how to make all teams like the best teams, play to strengths, build trust and have a shared sense of purpose
  • Fostering human networks – learning to leverage connections around me

"Circa Logica Group enabled HR outsourcing in Central Luzon built from its partner-clients' trust and confidence. All the technologies and methodologies we create, we use ourselves", she added. When it talks about the future of work, it is talking about changing the way it captures information, workflows and introduces new technology. "As we focus on Conscious Culture and pivoting to teams, we are also on that path of transformation digitally".

Part of that transformation involves HR itself. "We are not called Human Resources any more. We are called People Experience. That’s a reflection of the work we want to be doing going forward. Not just managing resources but how we can focus and pivot on internal teams and communities externally," she said.

Early in 2020, Circa Logica Group launched Leave-A-Legacy Program. This is an adoption and reinforcement of the Volunteer Time Off (VTO) offering 4 paid days off for partner-employees to volunteer their time for a non-profit cause and participate in community service projects with the aim to create significant social impact.

CLG Head Among LinkedIn's Top 100 Filipinos

Circa Logica Group CEO & Managing Partner, Mikel Leroi Balansag, is on the 38th spot in the Top 100 Filipinos To Follow On LinkedIn For Inspiration And Learning 2019.

The list provides iconic Filipinos to follow on LinkedIn published by Marketing In Asia, a Malaysia-based online op-ed magazine aimed to empower millions of Asian brands and professionals.

The following is an excerpt from the published article on 14th December 2019 by Virginia Bautista:

"The number of Filipino LinkedIn members has tremendously increased in the past few months. Currently, there are already more than 7 million LinkedIn members from the Philippines. While the overwhelming majority of them are content viewers, rather than content creators, the opportunity to build a much more engaging and supportive Filipino LinkedIn community is huge as more Filipinos find value in the content shared by their fellow Filipinos on the platform. 
"The 2019 list, as you’ll see, is much bigger than last year’s list as we now have the top 100 Filipinos who create, engage and reshare content on LinkedIn. They’re all Filipino content creators on LinkedIn who have inspired their fellow Filipino LinkedIn members to get them to this year’s list. 
"The top 100 Filipinos in the list are from various industries including marketing, training, coaching, consulting, human resources, healthcare, technology, BPO, real estate, etc."
"HR is a never ending process and lifelong learning. I am committed to sharing industry and best practices for the advancement of HR and people managers creating successful leaders one company at a time," answered Balansag on why he should be followed on Linkedin.
