Typical Challenges in the HR function

  • Right Talent Acquisition, Retention and motivation

Retention has become tougher than at any time in the past and has become a heightened issue. Companies sometimes need to offer more in terms of benefit packages or incentives, because people increasingly look for jobs that reduce their risks in tough economic times. Employers are advised to identify their key employees from entry-level to upper-level management and take the appropriate steps that are unique to their businesses to retain these individuals.

  • Leadership Development

As companies grow and expand, developing leaders has become a major initiative. Successful companies that work on leadership development will also make strides with better employee retention. Employees repeatedly say that poor leadership as a reason for leaving jobs. They also want a more active leadership role in decisions within their jobs, which may necessitate training.

  • Productivity

With the workforce headcount issues sorted, the Human Resources team must next look at productivity levels to ensure that the business is operating efficiently. Where productivity is low, HR needs to know whether the problem is caused by poor working practices or lack of resources. This determination is often made by carrying out a Time and Motion (T&M) study to define who does what and how.

  • Training and Compliance

Training is an essential aspect of employee development, both for their own education but also to ensure you continue to get the best from your workforce. Out of total employees, it is a challenge to find out which set of employees need what type of training (technical, soft skills, Management, other).

  • Culture

Research has proven that culture influences organizational performance, whether performance is defined in terms of customer satisfaction, attendance, safety, stock price or productivity. Human resources play an active role in the development of organizational culture. Great workplaces with a great corporate culture are more financially successful than their peers. Great workplaces have lower employee turnover than their competitors and are able to recruit top talent that fits their culture and needs.
