Human Resource Knuggets

May 30, 2024

Welcome to this week’s HR newsletter! We have gathered some insightful and trending topics in human resource management to help you stay updated and make strategic decisions for your organization.

The first theme we want to highlight is the use of AI in recruitment. The recent news about the UK’s HM Revenue and Customs using AI for recruitment has sparked a debate about the ethical use of AI in HR processes. While over 25% of professionals believe AI should never be used for hiring, it’s important to acknowledge the potential benefits of using AI in supporting HR functions, including recruitment. Our guide outlines the principles of AI supporting those functions, and we believe that people should always be involved alongside AI in all HR processes.

The second theme is focused on upskilling managers to inspire teams amidst disruption. As organizations navigate through unprecedented disruptions, it’s crucial to position managers as catalysts for employee potential. Our upcoming webinar on “Building Better Managers: The Key to Unlocking Employee Engagement” will provide insights on how to facilitate high-impact employee development by optimizing manager capabilities and enhancing engagement strategies.

The third theme revolves around maximizing resources in a difficult economy. As organizations work to communicate their offerings and attract top talent, it’s essential to create a total rewards statement that boosts recruitment and retention. Our free webinar on “How to Create a Total Rewards Statement That Boosts Recruitment and Retention” will provide strategies on understanding the benefits of a total rewards statement and standing out from other employers vying for the same talent.

In addition to these themes, we also have news updates on organizational sustainability, menopause principles and obligations, learning and development, employee engagement, and more. Stay informed about the latest trends and insights to drive sustainable practices, understand workplace obligations, and enhance management practices.

As HR professionals, it’s crucial to stay updated on industry trends and best practices to drive organizational success. We encourage you to explore the resources and webinars mentioned in this newsletter to gain valuable insights and strategies for your organization.

Overall, it’s important to consider the ethical use of AI in recruitment, upskilling managers to inspire teams amidst disruption, and maximizing resources in a difficult economy to drive strategic and effective human resource management.
