Firstly, I do work in HR so looking to bounce off my fellow MN’ers for some guidance for tomorrow, but avoiding the CIPD communities website as it isn’t anonymous
I have an annual HR day tomorrow, which is run by the group (think big international Company 5k employees) and they’ve sprung on us today that they’re looking forward to us attending and to bring with us “*information on HR trends in your country / area”*
We’re mainly in Europe but I’m the only HR person going from the UK.
I can think off not sure I can actually discuss them in much detail :
1. Brexit implications 2. Currency affecting our bottom line (in particular because we source / purchase in €’s) 3. Apprenticeship levy. Resource required to meet ROI 4. GDPR / data protection law changes 5. Skills shortage / tight recruitment market for professional / technical roles
flowery like this suggestion. We have an online review system which is group led. Can be used for continuous reviews / IPD / check back on leadership behaviours. But for Love nor money will our group management come away from the traditional annual one so the target is for the Jan review to be compulsory - drive me mad as our management are more forward, use the system but if they’re “reported” as not completing the jan review, they’re red marked!
Flexible working - as an option to be offered at interview. Currently there is still the mindset of bums on seats yet the technology and capability for flexible working is pervasive in people’s day to day lives.
The evolution and future of the Employment Tribunal.
It went well! Certainly didn’t need to panic that I hadn’t thought of anything 🙄
They used a website to do a live word cloud survey - so you logged on from your phone, added your top 5 HR trends, and then we all reviewed the word cloud and pulled out the themes - HR digitalisation was the biggest one, which I’d added too. It was a clever little activity, like a, “on the pulse” survey of HR that we all the talked about.
