Top 3 HR Predictions for 2020

by Charlotte Emerson

A new year means new approaches and advances within the world of HR. From mental health to Automation Technology, I discover the three top trends predicted throughout the year 2020.

More focus on Mental Health in Employees

Stress and burnout at work is a regular topic of conversation, therefore, it is expected that trend will continue to grow in 2020. Yes, physical health is important, but a growing emphasis is being placed on mental health at work.

Employee mental health is a continuous issue at work and it’s one that society and leading organisations are paying increased attention to. One of the best things you can do at your company in 2020, is to invest in a health and wellbeing program for your employees.

“A health and wellbeing program allow companies to be proactive and open about health concerns. However, this needs to be approached sensitively so that it doesn’t turn into a program that shames employees who struggle with their health.”

Automation Technology and Artificial Intelligence Taking Over

Automation is invading the HR space, and very soon everything that can be automated, will be automated. Current HR staff need to adapt to the coming changes or get left behind in the dust.

With strategic automation, HR teams can reduce paper shuffling and focus the attention on more strategic roles of HR like talent forecast, pipeline succession, and more.

Organisations can design, streamline, integrate, and deploy necessary services swiftly at a considerably lower cost. If implemented right, HR automation can reap indispensable benefits.

An Increased Focus on Performance Management

Performance management practices are going through a big change. It is about measuring, managing, and improving the contribution of the individual to the organisation.

Ongoing feedback, coaching and 360-feedback, regular 1-2-1 management reviews have become mainstream through automated systems.

A motivated workforce helps the organization reduce turnover rates and boost the productivity significantly. 

Mean­ing­ful reward sys­tems are immense­ly impor­tant for employ­ee happiness. “83% of employ­ees work­ing in an envi­ron­ment with good reward and recog­ni­tion struc­tures say they are con­tent in their posi­tion”.
