The work we know is in the midst of profound changes around the world and Argentina, even with the economy marked by uncertainty, does not shy away from the impact of this revolution and the paradigm shift, said Andrea Villa, CEO of Ranstad for Argentina and Uruguay.
And I emphasize: identifying and understanding the trends that occur in the working ecosystem is vital for organizations that need to be developed and adapted to recruitment and talent plans that are cost-effective and sustainable over time. According to the Argentine expert team, these are the eight most important trends that will affect the world of work from 2019:
1. The constant advancement of technology will become the norm
While keeping up with technological advancement is a challenge, today's workers expect a high degree of digital sophistication in their areas of work. Employers must solve this reality, giving the digital world the relevance it has in its true dimension, adopting technologies that enable them to innovate and provide the necessary training to help their employees in the use of new tools.
2. The change in how, when, where and why the work is completed is continuous
Companies offer their employees more flexibility. This implies greater fluency between personal and working life, which makes it normal for people to perform tasks of their personal life during working hours and to work at home in resting hours, Digital DNA appointment.
Employers also realize that the commitment of their workers grows while they are involved in the company's goals, and therefore they try to link the achievements of workers with those of companies to gain competitive advantages.
3. The training, at any time and place, becomes an expectation
When companies do not offer significant opportunities for learning and growth, employees are absent. Provide relevant, timely and training opportunities on demand to be one of the most important strategies for retaining talents for 2019.
In addition, personalized career development will also become more popular, as companies recognize the benefits of being dedicated to the career coach to help them improve their professional development.
4. Diversity and inclusion will occupy a central place
Companies must focus on diversity and inclusion to attract a wider group of talents. Ultimately, there are different ideas and perspectives is a key ingredient in innovation and can help improve business decisions. Diversity and involvement are values that will require acceptance of all, especially to senior managers.
5. Employers should focus on recruiting the candidate's potential and retaining talent
When searches remain open for long periods, companies are forced to invest more time and money in the recruitment and selection process, while overloaded computers become less efficient.
Employers must think differently about what makes him a quality candidate, focusing more on the essential attributes than the desired ones. In addition, they must be creative to improve and encourage retention of talent in the medium and long term.
6. The company's culture will affect the quality of candidates appearing for their searches
Positive organizational culture is a great attraction for candidates who evaluate different job opportunities, making it increasingly important for companies to share external messages that accurately capture and transmit their work environments. While it is tempting to communicate only those positive points that employees emphasize from their workplace, it is crucial that this communication is reflected in an authentic way to the work environment of the company.
7. Performance measurement tools will be developed
Internal processes for evaluating worker performance will become fluid, with the inclusion of new models that provide constant feedback. This will have a direct impact on promotion processes that focus instead on several promotions in rigid and structured terms will be directed towards more gradual advancement and reward structures in which managers will encourage employees to take on new challenges in a sustained
8. Artificial Intelligence (AI) tends to become a category of employment
While several organizations today consider that technological tools are a formal part of their workforce, it changes from disruption to artificial intelligence. According to experts of Ranstad, the artificial but initial intelligence is a segment that grows within the workforce. In any case, technology – away from human replacement – helps it to be more productive and to get results of greater value in its tasks.
In a context marked by the unstoppable progress of technology, training is a differential for any company that wants to continue to be attractive to the labor market. Organizational culture, sustainability, social commitment and diversity will be key to the more important assets of the employer's brand, ahead of the candidates who give priority to companies that offer them work for the purpose. Added to these trends is a continued quest for greater flexibility, another growing factor that is crucial in retaining talent, says Andrea Villa.
Each company is different, however, organizational leaders who take the time to assess how these trends affect their companies will be better prepared to keep their companies flexible, creative and profitable for the future in which the change is consolidated as a constant. (ANDigital)
