Fremont, CA: Unquestionably, the pandemic has impacted the way of working of the global workforce. Remote working has become the new normal, and reports suggest that a majority of the employees are interested in opting for this working style going forward. Concurrently, businesses and companies are also promoting the notion of a hybrid work culture to nurture the interests of their employees.
Taking this transition into account, an organization in the post-pandemic era should enhance its approach towards recruiting to future-proof its talent group. Since they are now aware of the shift in preferences in response to the global lockdown, it is essential that they are capable of providing a comforting culture for the candidates according to their working mode preferences. That being said, reports further suggest that the talent pool in the new normal is looking for certain aspects in organizations that they aspire to work for. While the list starts with the option for hybrid work culture, it is followed by agility, employee training and wellness, data privacy, and job satisfaction.
On the other hand, according to experts, the hybrid work culture can be both a challenge and an opportunity for HR professionals. While the benefit is having access to a boundary-less talent pool, the challenge is to collect pertinent data for proper decision-making. Since the workforce is diverse and spread across different locations, it is essential to gain the employees’ trust and ensure safety over their personal data. At the same time, the HR professionals should also be able to adequately convey the organization’s data privacy policies to remote working employees. Moreover, as security breaches are common in the business world today, the safety of their data storage methods should also be assured. Above all, it is critical for HR departments to maintain transparency with employees throughout the entire course of their employment.
The current wave of remote work culture benefits not only employees but also employers. Improved efficiency and productivity are some of the many advantages that employers could leverage. Hence, the onus is on the organizations to reform themselves and cater to the needs of their employees regardless of their working mode.
