Emerging HR trends redefine the employer-employee relations which in return affects the business flow of an organisation.
The human resources management team have a lot of responsibilities that range from defining needs of attracting more talent to the business and recruitment, to looking after employee development and advancement. The human resources function happens to be very dynamic and ever-changing in order to fit the changing organisations and market trends. There are HR trends emerging that redefine the employer-employee relations which in return affects the business flow of an organisation.
Recently, we have been hearing a lot about companies that are adopting flexible work arrangements like allowing their employees to work remotely. According to a survey by Flex Jobs (2015), 82 percent out of 2600 respondents are more loyal to their employees because they are able to work with flexible arrangements. Some companies have proposed and implemented the idea of working four days a week instead of five while paying their employees the same salary amount. While some argued that this will not allow the workers enough time to get the work done, the levels of employee productivity were shown to go on the rise. Nowadays, millennials make up most of the workforce and they also happen to be the generation with the highest number of entrepreneurs. This explains why employees in the current workforce are more productive with less bureaucracy.
For any organisation to thrive, they must brand their employees as subject matter experts. For instance, Cooper Fitch regularly offers their employees training sessions to ensure that their employees become brand ambassadors who excel in their fields which in return improves the credibility of the business. It is an essential tool for companies that are trying to stand out from the crowd and are aiming to attract clients and top-level talents. Companies that invest in enriching the knowledge of their employees by providing online learning systems and constant training programs ensure that their workforce is in line with the ongoing market trends.
Keeping up with the HR trends and ensuring their implementation will ensure that your business never falls off the grid. One of the greatest contributors to the premature deaths of DVD stores is their failure to keep up with the changing industry. In 2018, workplaces should look forward to implementing improvements and changes. With today’s rapidly changing marketplace, any organisation that fails to implement today’s HR trends will most likely cease to exist.
