Data Will Deliver
The rise of big data has made access to information faster, easier and cheaper. This will allow human resources personnel to leverage analytics to help them develop more targeted candidate pools. Data will also help make your company’s HR department much more efficient.
Culture is Key
We’ve already talked at great length about how critically important it is for your organization to have a strong, positive corporate culture. The focus on this will only continue to grow as we move into 2016. HR will play a pivotal role in fostering this culture through comprehensive on-boarding programs.
Conventional practices like annual reviews are all but becoming extinct in favor of real-time, interactive feedback. As a result, entire compensation structures will continue to be disrupted and require complete redesign to make them more effective.
Silos Will be Squashed
In years past, each department within a company would work almost independently. If your property management organization is set up this way, expect things to change. The future of work, starting in 2016 and continuing on, will involve a more open and cohesive infrastructure in which departments will work in collaboration together. HR is leading the way on this front.
