Current workforce trends suggest that HR leaders are faced with the toughest challenges to attracting, rewarding and retaining talent. Research suggests that compensation alone is not doing the trick to solve the talent crisis. Employees are relying on employers to provide flexible work schedules and arrangements to balance work and life.
Technological advancements have made it possible to conduct business virtually anywhere in the world. More organizations are taking advantage of the ability to expand their brands and to connect their workforces, as well. Forty-two percent of HR Professionals said the use of technology to eliminate geographic barriers in the workplace would have a major impact on business operations in the near future. In a related trend, a combined 85% of HR reps said an increased use of virtual teams would affect the U.S. workplace in the next five years as reported by the 2013 SHRM Workplace Forecast. As these workforce trends become the “new normal” in the way employees work, companies are relying on HR to support virtual leaders and global virtual teams to be engaged and effective.
