It’s time for HR to catch up with the new realities of employment.
Recently, a CEO posed this question to a colleague of mine who leads HR for a midsize organization: “How can we reduce the attrition occurring throughout the company?” At first blush, that seems like a pretty good question. But many of our views of attrition remain anchored in the past. Consider the following:
One of the top reasons employees leave organizations is the lack of career development and advancement opportunities.
There are few HR topics that garner more media attention than employee benefits.
A simple Google search of “employee benefits” yields more than 429 million results.
Paid family leave, workplace flexibility and health care now dominate the conversation in Washington, D.C., and in our workplaces, and employee benefits continues to be among the most popular topics at SHRM.
What motivates workers to seek a new job and what makes them want to stay? The answer is deceptively simple. Workers want companies to provide them with fair compensation and benefits, workplace perks and development opportunities that help advance their careers. In other words, invest in your employees and they will be invested in your firm.
Over the coming decades “Mature Workers” (defined as age 50+) will be one of the largest sources of talent available. Given this reality and the invaluable nature of older workers’ experience and skills, organizations must develop both acquisition and retention strategies to employ the mature workforce and stay competitive. That’s where SHRM, the SHRM Foundation, and AARP come in.
Is your organization “going with the flow” of the ever-evolving workplace or becoming stagnated by outdated talent strategies?
The new world of work is responding to societal changes and sociocultural shifts by breaking down traditional barriers in the workplace and empowering employees to bring their whole selves to work to become more than a profession, title or job description.
Employee engagement and retention continue to be top challenges for business. In dealing with these issues, organizations need to recognize that the two issues are related. Organizations can’t engage employees who don’t stay and employees won’t stay if they’re not engaged. As HR professionals, we have to look for tools and solutions that will help us accomplish both.
Technology is one of those things.
