The Business Impact of a Mature Hiring Process _____________________
To pinpoint where strategies need to shift, an understanding of talent acquisition advancements must exist.
The recent spike in mergers and acquisitions, the Internet of things (IoT) and technology-centric business transformations have organizations
moving faster than ever to achieve strategic initiatives. To keep pace and effectively execute against operational goals, a strong workforce is essential.
The Business Impact of a Mature Hiring Process As one-third of human resource (HR) leaders note a
worsening skills shortage within their organization, many are underway with plans to upskill their current workforce and retain key players. Although a look internally certainly benefits immediate skill gaps, higher rates of employee turnover and the competitive nature of the job market force attention toward the maturity of HR operations, specifically talent acquisition (TA).
Why Leaders Should Encourage Employee Autonomy _____________________
Micromanaging can look a lot like paternalistic leadership.
Despite all we’ve written on the subject over the years, micromanagement continues to plague organizations everywhere, and at some point in your career, it’s likely you’ve experienced some form of it.
While it’s not every manager’s intention to adopt this notorious style of fear-based leadership, many find it hard to release their grip or struggle to grant full employee autonomy. Whatever the reason, the result is always the same: unmotivated and disengaged workers.
Employee autonomy doesn’t just empower your people to do their best work, it taps into a deeper, more personal motivation that surpasses what external rewards, like money, can offer. This leads to passionate employees that are more creative, confident, and productive, which in turn leads to more successful businesses with a better bottom line.
Are You Supporting Your Remote Employees? _____________________
As employers, optimizing the employee experience should be our number one priority.
According to a worldwide study, approximately 70 percent of global employees worked remotely at least once a week in 2018, while 53 percent telecommuted closer to half the week. These figures are significantly higher than studies from previous years, where Gallup found that 43 percent worked from home at least sometimes in 2016 (and 39 percent in 2012). As telecommuting acceptance and the number of remote employees continues to balloon, employers must learn to appreciate the
significant value remote employees bring and support their unique needs. If you have ever worked from home, then you know how it feels when you are truly supported as a remote employee and how it feels when you aren’t.
