HRCI recently posted an article offering guidance to HR professionals on how organizations can best manage employees as many return to the office after telecommuting.
“How Organizations Can Return, Re-Engage, Re-Train and Ultimately Retain Their Workforce” summarizes the thoughts of HR thought leaders who spoke at HRCI’s recent “Higher Standard” micro-summit. Takeaways include:
- Recognize and practice the skills you need to thrive: HR professionals need to develop their ability to manage hybrid teams with a variety of schedules, time zones, and types of employment. Organizations should be experimental and flexible, more diverse, and less based on hierarchical structures.
- Take steps towards modern HR practice: Modernize your HR department, staying abreast of new trends in the field such as agile (or continuous) performance reviews.
- Put company values front and center: Values ground a global workplace, uniting who you are at a macro-level and driving practices across the globe. Values can also result in more deeply thought out policies.
