A wise man once said, “HR is not just a thing we do; it's the thing that runs our business.” 

The outbreak of the global pandemic, COVID-19 has led to large-scale shifts and completely changed how people worked and operated things. While employees are still adjusting to these transformations, businesses are trying their best to establish meaningful connections between employees. Talking about HR professionals, they are rethinking strategies and methods to manage employees and other routine operations. 

Amid all this chaos, new human resources trends will continue emerging that will, undoubtedly, change workforce management now and in the future.

Let’s dive into this article and take a look at some of the top trends we will witness in 2021 and beyond:

Rise of Technology 

Over the past year, technology has helped and supported companies across India like never before. The majority of businesses in India have made peace with the fact that outdated tools are limited to office setups. This realization has increased the use of automated software for HR management. Such systems come with a host of benefits and features. One of the obvious advantages of using automated software is that it can be used anytime, anywhere. If invested in the right software, an organization can acquire a number of benefits in this difficult time. HR managers, in particular, can save a lot of time and energy by automating crucial processes like payroll, attendance, and much more. 

All that said, it is quite clear that the rise of technologies such as software for HR management and payroll systems will rise in the coming years. 

Upskilling For The Future 

The sudden shifts that happened due to this pandemic disrupted many businesses due to their unpreparedness. Keeping the same thing in mind, upskilling and reskilling for the future will be a major focus area in the coming times. Companies will now take new steps to prepare their employees to deal with unprecedented situations. Besides, they will also help employees to learn new skills to make their jobs more efficient. Now, this may not be as easy as it sounds but if done correctly, it will surely reap a number of benefits in the long run. 

Data-Based Hiring

Like any other space, recruitment is equally witnessing a massive shift lately. With HR executives getting an opportunity to take a break from hiring for a year, they got an opportunity to rethink the whole hiring experience. As a result, they are now working to make hiring more effective by harnessing data and analytics to match the required skills. This way, businesses can not just improve search but also make sure a seamless experience for the candidate. And, with no doubt, more and more organizations will embrace data-based recruitment in the future. 

Focus on Employee Wellbeing 

It is no news that the ongoing pandemic has brought a much-needed focus on employee wellbeing. Unlike in the past, the wellbeing of working people has now become a norm for the success of a company. Also, in order to aid companies to stay relevant and thrive in the future, employee experience will be designed with three considerations- One is performance, the second is learning and growth, and the third is employee wellbeing

Companies will be paying more attention to find new ways and solutions to maintain this balance.
