The turn of the century has introduced new changes to the workforce, namely an ageing population, growing young families who need work-life balance to raise their young, and the advancement of technology. To remain relevant in our highly competitive economy, progressive businesses must continuously adapt their practices to remain relevant, productive and profitable.

Successfully Managing your Multi-Generational Workforce

In a Human Resource capacity, employee motivation, engagement and performance are the core aspects that many organizations would aim to satisfy to power productivity. When an organization shows that it welcomes challenges and opportunities arising from its multi-generation workforce, employees can grow with the organization, allowing the organization to retain key human talent and acquire stability and efficiency with the reduced need for time and high costs incurred through employee turnovers.

Leveraging on the available resources in technology and carefully evaluating existing policies and available government grants, there are indeed exciting opportunities to start making positive changes to reach your organizational goals.

HR as a Change Leader- Introducing Job Re-design & Flexible Work Arrangements

As businesses and the landscape has changed, jobs need to be redesigned to support organizations and employees to manage the duality of their jobs at the workplace and responsibility at home. When it comes to redesigning of jobs, we will need to re-look at what work should be done in a job and how the tasks, duties & responsibilities of a specific job should be restructured, and also the pre-existing rules & regulations surrounding it.

This need for Flexibility is, on an Organizational level, in consideration of optimum staffing levels, Human Resource Policies and training needs, in order to create higher value-adding jobs, to support sustainable growth in productivity, reduce costs, enhance performance to meet the needs of your organizations.
