We all know that the world has changed dramatically in the last couple of years, especially the world of work. The acceptance of remote work and distributed organization has changed management processes and employee expectations. Multi-mode working may be complex, but it is here to stay. Physical and mental health issues have entered the HR domain following the pandemic. The skills and toolkits need a drastic overhaul as digitalization and automation dictate new roles and tasks for the people.
The terms and methods of engagement between the employer and the employee need reinvention in the digital age. The increasing business implications of personal manners, beliefs, preferences and expression require new moulds for the organizational mind. As the millennials come to dominate the workforce, the workplace culture must move forward. HR has to align itself for the new world before it can help the enterprise transform for continued relevance and competitiveness.
