PETER FORBES MAHRI
CEO, HR ONBOARD
Dealing with the different expectations and needs
of a multi generational workforce. What is going
to motivate someone to work for your company?
Do they connect with your culture, working
environment and greater purpose?
How does HR provide value above an administrative
and transactional role? How do they achieve real
value to the executive team (matching the CFO) and
to line managers?
On page 12, Peter Forbes questions the best method for
conducting exit interviews.
The management of interpersonal conflict has
historically been one of the primary roles of any
human resources department. This continues to be the
biggest human resources issue in today's workplaces,
particularly with the introduction of the Fair Work
Commission's new anti-bullying jurisdiction. Resolving
interpersonal conflicts quickly and amicably remains
vital to ensuring a cohesive workplace and the
prevention of unnecessary legal claims.
Apprentices are vulnerable employees. Trent Hancock gives
advice on how to properly handle their dismissal, page 42.
The current buzzword is strategic HR, and getting
among the key decision-makers to influence
organisational culture in the direction of sustainable
leadership seems to me a vital project for HR. It's
about where an organisation sits in relation to
the environment and the wider society, as well
as its interactions with its internal and external
stakeholders, and importantly, its supply chain.
On page 46, Rebecca Gilling reflects on her career in HR and
her love for the non-profit sector.
Reinventing the way we manage and measure
performance, and link performance to reward systems
is a critical issue. I think we are close to consensus
that the more traditional approaches to performance
management are not working but I don't think we
have a compelling solution for the future yet. Related
to this, is the need for HR to ensure their organisation
is well equipped to capitalise on the rapidly changing
workforce and different work environments.
More offices are implementing flexible work practices. Cathy
Graycon discusses how you can get it right on page 38.
