I am surprised and somewhat disappointed that one of the biggest "elephants in the room" for many years does not rate a specific mention...how are we going to deal with our mature workforces?The recent release of the Intergenerational Report and a lot of other research is making it perfectly clear that finding solutions to get the best out of our maturing workforces will be paramount to future success.as HR professionals, we need to bring these issues to the table and start working on solutions.
Good one Mark. As usual the Elephant positions itself as the HR expert but is just an external consultant with many employees of this Company never ever having an internal HR role. HR needs to do this and needs to do that. CEOs aren’t happy!!!bla bla bla These so called experts have never actually partnered with a business owner. It’s what the specific business needs not what the next best leadership trend should be and what these salesman want to sell. Oh hello – and it appears it may be better putting in non HR people for a HR role. Yes - because there is a shortage of good HR people their database. I clean up the mess from these sort of people that try and mind HR for short periods of time until the Company can secure a new and experienced HR Manager. Wow they really are removed from reality!!
