What’s Next for 21st-Century HR? Continuous Strategic Transformation

“How
can HR take on business objectives and bring value to the business? How
can HR remain agile and transformational well into the future? To
examine the transformation process, we developed a framework to help
organizations first assess where they are in their transformation
journey, then determine the steps they can take to advance their
efforts. The framework divides the process of HR transformation into
four distinct phases. We also identified six core elements (with a set
of actions to be taken within each element) as vital for a holistic
transformation of the HR function.”

Industrial Relations Outlook 2018: The Changing Face of Labour 

“Following
a challenging few years, the Canadian economy rebounded in 2017.
Despite the improvement, this pace of growth is likely to be
unsustainable, and an unpredictable global climate is keeping pay plans
modest going into 2018. Legislation changes in a number of jurisdictions across the country
will make for a challenging bargaining environment in 2018. In addition,
the pending legalization of recreational cannabis use—along with
concerns about its medical use—add to these complexities.”

“Unions will be looking to improve health and safety for the employees
on behalf of whom they bargain, and will also be focusing on job
security in 2018. Employers are focusing on flexible work practices,
improving productivity, and workforce planning in the coming year.
Mental health continues to be a significant area of focus on both sides
of the bargaining table.”

Wellness Initiatives: Trends in Organizational Health Management

“Wellness Initiatives: Trends in Organizational Health Management highlights
why investing in employee well-being makes good business sense. The
report examines how Canadian employers are approaching their corporate
wellness strategies and demonstrates employers’ ongoing commitment to
employee health promotion and wellness initiatives. It documents the
prevalence of these initiatives in Canadian workplaces and illustrates
that employers consider employee health broadly (e.g., physical and
mental health). The report is based on a survey—conducted by The
Conference Board of Canada in 2016—of 205 Canadian employers. The survey
is supplemented by one case study and a brief review of the research
literature.”
