Let’s face it, if you’re in Human Resources (HR) keeping up with the latest trends is tough! Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered! Be sure to scroll to the bottom to find out how Ajuda can help you keep up with these trends.
So let’s get started...
Mental Health and Well-being
If you’re in HR you know this has been a trend for years. But COVID-19 really forced this to the forefront. Most companies have shifted to remote work or hybrid working situations. These come with extra challenges like burnout and isolation. In 2023 we expect more companies will prioritize mental health and well-being. You’ll want to find services for your employees that allow resources for mental health such as support groups and counseling services.
While many tech companies were ahead of the curve, the pandemic made working from home the norm. In fact, many found remote working actually increased productivity and job satisfaction. This is now being touted as a benefit for many companies to attract and retain talent. As we move into 2023 expect even more businesses to adopt hybrid models and flexible working schedules. The dream of working from Bermuda just got easier!
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
The Black Lives Matter movement and ongoing discussions about racial and social injustice has brought the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) front and center. Companies are beginning to realize that DEI is not only the right thing to do, but it can also improve their bottom line. In 2023, expect to see more companies take concrete steps to increase diversity within their organizations and to create a more inclusive culture.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation
When we think of AI often we conjure images of robots and wires. Don’t worry, this isn’t Skynet. HR is already transforming by using AI and automation to help automate HR processes like recruitment, onboarding, and yes even benefits! In 2023, expect to see more companies use AI and automation to streamline HR. This will help HR professionals to be more efficient, and to focus on more strategic and meaningful work.
Employee Experience (EX)
Companies are realizing that the employee experience is just as important as the customer experience. The employee experience encompasses all aspects of an employee’s journey with a company, from the moment they first apply to the moment they leave. Expect to see more companies focus on creating a positive employee experience not only inside of the office but outside as well.
As these trends demonstrate, HR professionals need to be adaptable, innovative, and forward-thinking in order to stay ahead of the curve. Ajuda can help you implement many of these trends to create a more positive and productive work environment for everyone. Want to get a demo of Ajuda?
