Early Adoption - Against HR's Nature?
Today, when technology and people management come together to improve organization performance, improvement is almost always supported by technology. And the introduction of new technology always means change.
HR is not known for being innovative. HR is known for its compliance orientation and focus on risk mitigation. But the push of these shiny new technologies and their potential to increase engagement and productivity and the pull of employee expectations puts HR squarely in the innovation zone today. Gen X and Gen Y cohorts are clamoring for their employers to become early adopters of technologies - such as, social media - to excel in their job functions.
How does HR balance the need for engagement through innovation with the responsibility to mitigate risk? And is it even in HR’s nature to be Early Adopters?
Workplace Flexibility - The Next Imperative for Business Success and HR Leadership
There are now four generations in the workforce, and four in five of all employees whore married are in dual earner couples. One of every five employees currently provides elder care and this number will increase dramatically to almost half of the workforce over the next several years. It is no surprise that employed men are experiencing more work-life conflict than in the past. It is important for organizations to acknowledge and respond to these changes in the workforce.
The workplace is also undergoing important transformations. Jobs have become more demanding and less secure in the current economic climate. The average middle class family works 500 hours more than they would have in the 1970s. The global marketplace runs on a 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week economy. These factors contribute to greater intensity in the workplace today.
Human resource professionals can help their organizations respond to these transformations by building support for policies and practices that create effective workplaces. Increasingly, workplaces are recognizing that employees are an organization’s greatest resource and make a critical difference in an organization’s ability to not merely survive, but to thrive. To be truly flexible and effective, a workplace — its design, practices and policies - must benefit the organization and its employees.
Learn how flexible work arrangements - such as, job sharing, flexible scheduling, phased retirement, and telecommuting - can drive employee engagement, productivity, retention, and benefit your organization’s bottom line.
