HR Brexit

By Belinda Sharr

When Brexit unexpectedly happened in June 2016 and defied expert predictions (The Economist reported 85 per cent of polls said Britain would remain in the EU), many HR executives across the EMEA region were left wondering about the future—specifically how the announcement would impact relocation trends.

China: Skill Shortage Meets Talent Surplus

HR Outsourcing

Retention strategies and hiring for future potential are keys to recruiting success in the APAC region.

Christa Elliott

Being that the APAC region is home to nearly 60 per cent of the world’s population, it should be no secret that Asia is a fertile hiring ground. But as with any large and underutilised talent pool, recruiting Asian candidates can come with its own unique set of challenges. This is especially true in China. In the current job market, recruiters may find that job seekers in China have an altogether different set of skills, needs, and job preferences than job seekers further west, or even potential hires in other Asian countries.

Accolades Drive Success

HR Outsourcing

Recognition can be a complex task but implementing an effective programme has multiple benefits.

By Belinda Sharr

Ambitious employees—no matter where they work around the globe—want their accomplishments highlighted. Recognition is an important part of the employee experience at a company, and studies have indicated that recognition is tied to great things—increased employee engagement and retention, and better business results.

In 2015, studies from Aon Hewitt found that a 5 per cent increase in employee engagement is linked to a 3 per cent increase in revenue growth in the subsequent year.

Marta Chmielowicz

Labour Pains

Face EMEA market workforce challenges directly and strategically to ensure future growth.

Jo Faragher

Whilst many professionals in Europe are still reviewing the potential implications of Brexit—the U.K.’s decision to exit the European Union—the EMEA labour market faces its own challenges in the coming years. On the one hand, a rapidly ageing workforce has left many HR professionals struggling with succession planning; on the other, they’re coming to grips with new trends such as an increasingly freelance labour market and the potential threats and opportunities brought by automation.

HRO STA Update: Stop Solving Your Problems

HRO Today Zachary Misko

D. Zachary Misko

Instead, look for the people who have already solved them,

Your company has a big problem. You’ve thought about it, but you can’t seem to find the best solution—at least not easily. So you consult your team and colleagues to no avail; then you turn to the internet, where all of your industry experts surely must be. They’ve got nothing. (Well, to be precise, they’ve got hundreds of PowerPoint slides, thousands of links to possible solutions, and several dozen videos worth of nothing.)
