It’s not all plain sailing in the worlds of HR and Line management.
We know engagement is fundamentally about leaders providing strong strategic vision, managers managing people well and great two-way communication where employees feel involved. Reward has an impact on all three and ‘fair deal’ certainly earns its place as one of the eight ‘best company’ factors.
With the limited resources firms have these days, hiring has become a bigger gamble than ever. Recruit the wrong person, and you’ve wasted precious time and money. But some companies are turning to a new tool that could forever change the way HR hires and appraises employees: Big Data.
Most employees presume that their company aspires to meet the goal of competitive pay. Companies routinely advertise the practice (“we offer competitive wages”) and candidates expect this of potential employers.
But what happens when your goal of offering competitive pay is finally achieved? Are employees grateful? Can companies rest in their efforts to attract, motivate and retain?Nope.

Brand strategy and talent management are two of the most influential disciplines within an organisation. Imagine, then, the power they could have if they joined forces.It may not be immediately obvious, but the two are very closely related and continually feed into one another. If the relationship is governed well, each is something of a superfood, strengthening and nurturing the other.
Stong performance and the results it carries are all well and good, of course, but it does not necessarily indicate that an employee will make a good leader. And according to research from member-based executive team advisory company CEB, companies are seriously hurting themselves by failing to differentiate between performance and potential.
In 2014, we will see HR shifting their focus to workforce planning and developing retention strategies to hold on to their talent. Issues such as poor leadership and management, lack of training and development opportunities -as well as the assciated lack of rewards, recognition and career progression – need to be addressed.

As a recruiter, you may already be aware of the benefits of hiring candidates from a wide range of backgrounds, ages, nationalities, genders, and industries. Diversity in hiring is what transforms any organization from a small entity to a global force. Social recruiting has become a large part of this effort.

Why? Because we feel things that come from the inside of the companies are even more valuable that articles and theories.
We will do our best to balance both categories. And hope you enjoy while we try 🙂
