A 2018 ERSI study found that “Workers in Ireland were more likely to report the pressures of emotional demands ….and other forms of mistreatment”. So, how can HR develop resilience and a motivated workforce faced with constantly increasing demands, complexity and change?
A CIPD study in 2018, HR practices in Ireland, found that 81% of organisations across all sectors have experienced skill shortage in the last 12 months. Retention and recruitment are high priorities for HR professionals in 2019 and beyond.
Retention of staff is a key issue. It’s important that both new and existing staff are supported and encouraged to remain with their employer.
Retention begins with robust recruitment practices and effective induction – be an employer of preference
Retention is improved by creating a positive workplace culture and further developing organisational values
The People Summit 2019 aims to encourage learning and networking and offer further insights from eminent speakers into how recognition, resilience and retention issues can be addressed successfully.
