This year, there are 10 trends which you can read about here. But what do these trends mean concretely? What changes do they bring about and, especially, what benefit do they have for my company and how can I implement them?
Week by week we will take a deeper look at one of the trends and summarize the most important lessons for you.
10 Weeks – 10 Trends – Many Changes
Trend 1: Reinventing HR – We Reap What We Sow
Human Resources is no longer simply a service- it is an interactive, engaging company strategy. HR is now primarily responsible for the recruitment, development, and support and retention of talent. In short: HR aims to provide competent employees.
This is also seen in company surveys, with 80% of companies marking HR as “important” and 39% as “urgent.”
Despite this critical role, only 5% of companies rate their HR performance as excellent and only 22% deem their HR department as sufficiently adapting itself to the needs of its employees.
A shift in consciousness is certainly already visible, yet companies need more support from HR. At the same time, CEOs must invest in more capacities for the HR field. Not only to integrate corporate training and development seamlessly into the company instead of micromanaging the process, but more importantly to secure the most qualified employees.
