The pandemic made clear the need for more flexible work models. HR can help businesses scale and succeed by becoming more agile to adapt to whatever may come their way. Successful companies of the future will be flexible and responsive. They will be proactive enough to develop transformative strategies but able to react as needed.
How To Implement Effective HR Transformation
Lead With Purpose
HR can help facilitate transformation leading with purpose and promoting positive values and culture. This strong foundation provides a framework for innovation and upscaling. Purpose-driven companies that can shift from a “how “perspective to a “why perspective” often experience better engagement and morale, improved reputation and positive brand recognition, and stronger financial performance.
Begin with a Clear Objective
Understand how you want your business to transform. Goals should align with company values and mission while keeping in mind the impact on employees. Are you making their job easier or more challenging? Will candidates be encouraged to apply, or will your reputation deter them? It’s also essential to achieve top-down buy-in. Companies with executives who lead by example are more than five times more likely to have a successful transformation.
Build a Flexible Workforce
Because many companies are moving to remote, hybrid and distributed business models, they are no longer constrained by geography in their recruiting efforts. The flip side is they are now competing nationally and even internationally for top talent and in-demand skills. One strategy to remain relevant and scale effectively is to reskill and upskill current staff. HR can help to drive this effort.
Improve Employee Experience
With seemingly unlimited competition for talent, keeping candidates and employees engaged at every stage is essential. Growth requires companies to add more employees. If organizations are continually leaking talent, maintaining the status quo becomes nearly impossible, never mind upscaling. Smart employers understand the importance of making each employee feel seen – recognized for the individual they are. It’s worth making time to provide professional development opportunities, chances to have their voices heard by company leaders and build their skills.
