By Maria Bunting Smedley
In my 20-plus year career as an HR executive, I’ve witnessed first-hand that as professionals assemble their career development resources to help weather the ups and downs of climbing the corporate ladder, the value of an HR partnership is often overlooked. But it shouldn’t be: HR is responsible for creating policies and crafting the framework that drives compensation, promotions, succession planning, career development, and talent management decisions. However, the “power” of HR is derived from three major components: access, information, and influence.

Expanding into new international markets is fraught with difficulties. From aligning cultures to ensuring talent gaps are filled, multinational organisations can struggle to adapt to the norms and realities of their many areas of operation. But with the shift of economic activity from Europe and North America to markets in Africa, Asia, and Latin America comes a renewed need to manage global organisations. In fact, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, 400 midsize emerging-market cities, many unfamiliar in the West, will generate nearly 40 per cent of global growth over the next 15 years.

By Debbie Bolla
There is definitely strength in numbers when it comes to understanding the workforce. Data has the power to determine the best sources of hire, underlying reasons for attrition, strategies to retain workers, and ways to optimize workforce planning. LinkedIn’s Global Recruiting Trends Report finds that 64 percent of recruiting and hiring managers use data during the decision-making process. With so much workforce data out there, where should HR begin?
Showcasing purpose, growth, and flexibility is key to crafting an EVP that attracts younger workers.
By Marta Chmielowicz
For a long time, “millennial” has been the buzzword of the business world.

Best practices for managing a remote workforce.

Remote work is no longer just for independent entrepreneurs, distant employees, or gig-economy workers. Smart companies are realizing they need to go where the talent is, even if that means hiring someone away from their offices. Remote work also does not exclusively refer to independent employees based away from a main office. It includes employees and teams who communicate and collaborate across multiple company offices—a reality that global organizations have embraced for a long time. Having this physical distance between teams requires companies to adapt and learn how best to manage and motivate when everyone is not in the same building.
