At this end of the year, you only hear about one thing: 2019 Strategic Planning!
All departments within a company need to strategize to survive in this competitive market. To do this, they are starting to organize themselves and are putting a plan together to launch it into action in 2019. The Human Resources department can’t be left out in this strategic planning since it’s an essential ‘organ’ in every organization which keeps the company alive, running smoothly and healthy.
The following points are key pillars that you can’t leave out of a strategic HR plan:
You’ve probably already heard this saying once in your lifetime: The numbers never lie! It’s true, having a robust Human Resources database is without a doubt the best way to analyze a particular scenario before taking any concrete decisions or putting a plan into action. The database can range from candidate pools, employee surveys or implemented project results. Unfortunately, very few companies understand the value of an accurate and strategic database. Having data to rely on and guide you ultimately prevents possible risks such as employee turnover, ghosting, retention etc.
Strategic and Horizontal Management
With the recent wave of startups and tech companies that have revolutionized many practices within the HR industry, a traditional hierarchy is increasingly being overtaken by new leadership models. Positive cultural organizational changes and promoting healthy relationships amongst employees are two of the many important strategies that should be taken into consideration when planning for 2019, as they bring impacting and lasting results.
These changes also enable the exchange of experiences and points of views, fundamental for professional growth and, consequently, organizational growth.
Technology as Management Support
Monitoring performance, fostering employee relations and comparing historical data are essential pillars that should be implemented with the help of a technological tool or platform. You can do all this manually through spreadsheets, however, it’s a proven fact that automation ensures fluidity and agility in your Human Resources processes, in a scalable and strategic environment.
