Q WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST HR ISSUES IN TODAY'S WORKPLACES?
New, emerging HR issues are employer involvement
in 'non-work' areas of employees' lives by, for
example, monitoring their use of social media and
providing domestic violence leave. Attracting and
retaining high-performing employees; managing
technological change and providing flexible working
arrangements will continue to dominate.
HEAD OF HR,
Social media, technology and external marketing
are moving faster than HR. I believe the greatest
challenge we face in HR is to creatively and
innovatively adapt our thinking to keep up with the
new world of work. In an environment where best
practice is considered old, how do we challenge the
status quo and maintain pace with external change?
DIRECTOR HR, CBRE
The principal challenges facing HR are the same as
they have been for some time: hanging on to high
performing and talented staff and the recruitment
of top quality candidates. The market is extremely
competitive at the moment and there needs to be
collaboration between HR and all parts of the
business to be successful in these areas.
The cry of 'change or die' rings true for HR now.
As a consequence of technology, and work done
around leadership and management accountability,
line managers are now more equipped to handle
many HR issues themselves. That means old HR
support functions must adapt, or new HR leaders
or teams must evolve. The challenge is how to create
competitive advantage for your business through HR.
