Companies must step out of their old frameworks. This is the most important conclusion I drew after I read HR trends. I’ll show some examples that I often come across in conversations with customers.
Focus on the learning experience
Many companies are focused on the content and not on the delivery when it comes to educating and training. However, in an increasingly competitive labor market, you really have to offer a education and training experience and that’s just as recognisably distinctive as Facebook and LinkedIn. Were you ever trained in how to use Facebook and LinkedIn? Probably not. They both have intuitive interfaces so that people can simply learn how to use the service themselves.
Not only the content of a training is important, but especially how it is delivered and experienced by people. If your employees are still trained in a traditional classroom setting, perhaps even with needlessly thick manuals, you should ask yourself if that will make a new person in your company happy. The question is: Will unhappy people stay with your company? Read more: the consumerism of HR.
No longer one HR System
In the future organisation will no longer be using one big HR System, but will use specialised apps that provide excellent employee experiences in their use. Of course, those apps can still be used to share information within a central system. A large HR system cannot be Agile and as a result… neither can your employees.
