10 HR Trends You’ll See in 2016, Pt 2
Last month I wrote an article detailing the first 5 of the top 10 HR trends you’d notice taking effect during 2016. Now, as promised, I bring you the second 5 of those top 10 trends and how they’re going to be affecting you and your business. These are going to be more and more important as time goes on and cutting edge HR departments should take note!
- Helping wellbeing and resilience: As times and economies grow more and more uncertain, the strain put on employees (and their families) will only increase. People who aren’t at their mental best don’t perform at their best and so there will be an emphasis placed on supporting the mental wellbeing and health of employees as well as their families. For people being constantly pushed to hit ambitious targets and achieve high marks in their jobs, having this sort of support can be key towards retaining valued employees and having them both healthy and happy.
- Promoting the human side of business: As more and more gets automated in our lives, one would think that business would be to. While this is true to an extent, it also means that the human side of business is going to become more and more important as time goes on. Look for people working in small groups together to tackle problems and look for companies beginning to place an even higher emphasis on customer/client relations. After all, people make a business approachable.
- Big data analysis: Just like using big data to higher most effectively, big data analysis will increase across the board. It will help people work more effectively and this includes HR. Patterns can be noticed and acted upon for the good of both employees and the company.
- Consolidating of businesses: As businesses rise and fall, expect to see more and more consolidated and looking to hire. Industries are going to continue to both contract and expand and it will be up to HR professionals to both make these newer larger companies more attractive to potential hires as well as to hire the right people.
- Redoing performance reviews: Performance reviews are always stressful and there is constant discussion over the best way to do them. Expect that to continue as HR professionals continue to look for the best and most helpful way to get these done.
Even with all 10 of these trends written, they are by no means the final trends that will impact the HR industry in 2016. Expect to see more in the future! And if you’d like to read more, the link is here.
