How things be different for your business in the ‘new normal’ of 2020

In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed the impact of COVID-19 on the global workforce.

An estimated 2.7 billion employees globally have shifted to working remotely due to lockdowns and social distancing measures. There were also unfortunate cases of layoffs because some businesses were forced to close.

As every organisation struggled to survive during the crisis, the Human Resources (HR) stood on the frontlines, guiding employees, adapting policies and improving systems to ensure that the productivity of operations and workers remained.

However, things are beginning to normalise again.

Now that businesses are dealing with the aftermath of the pandemic, everyone from managers to staff members are having to face the “New Normal” work setting.

This means the HR team will once again play an important role in assisting employees and implementing new processes.

To help, here are a few changes to your business post-COVID and the ways you can provide support in the new era of 2020.

On the Future of HR and Employee Engagement Metrics

A while ago, I read a great post about the future of HR by McKinsey & Company. They say that HR in the future should be more strategic, drive business value, measure results, be analytical and accountable for the right metrics. That sounds very familiar and I wanted to share a few experiences and thoughts of my own on this topic.

Adding the Science of Human Behaviour to Engagement Surveys

What is it about traditional engagement surveys that doesn’t work? Is it because most tend to be annual (or at most, quarterly) in nature – meaning they merely record a snapshot of sentiment on a particular day of the year, rather than revealing the ‘real’ mood?

What's Happening in HR Tech for 2016?

HR Tech has certainly come a long way.  If you check out Angel List and look up every HR Tech Startup that is listed in their database, you will see almost 200 startups with almost 1,000 investors and 100 different jobs currently being offered.  Since New Year’s Day, there are already four new HR Tech Startups listed.  Most people have no clue that this industry is literally booming right now.  Unless you work in human resources, most people wouldn’t even know that every year, Las Vegas holds a massive conference for HR technology.  In fact, almost 9,000 attendees make it each year, with more than 300 exhibiting companies and over 75 new product announcements.
