7 HR Trends and Ideas to Implement This Year
For example, how candidates are treated during the recruitment and selection process will impact an organization’s reputation. If job candidates aren’t treated in a respectful manner (this includes a timely and thorough process), then people will not view this organization as an employer of choice. If you don’t treat people well while they are considering joining you, why would anyone believe that you will then be a good employer and provide a great place for them to work?

In 2020, we will see many more companies go beyond the “physical” part of wellness, and encourage their entire team to bring their whole selves to work. That will mean talking about things that were previously considered taboo in the HR world, like mental health. To truly succeed as a business, we must support our team. And we’ve neglected areas like mental health and financial wellness for too long.

The best ways to develop inclusive leadership are as follows:
Foster curiosity, apply moral courage and stay consistent. Foster curiosity by committing to understand as many inner worlds as you can. Apply moral courage by saying and doing the right thing by your employees, community, and environment, even if it means admitting you’re wrong. Stay consistent by implementing accountability measures that ensure longevity with your diversity and inclusion plans.
