In 2020 and for the first time in five years, HR professionals’ top priority will no longer be the recruitment of new employees, but rather training and retention of current staff. This was shown in the ‘HR Trends 2019-2020’ research report by AFAS Software, Berenschot and Performa. Although 2019 is still all about recruiting new talent, this trend is expected to stagnate next year.
HR technology can help the organisation stay flexible and improve the employee experience. But HR generally lags behind in competencies and knowledge of digitisation in their own field. This became apparent from research conducted this year for the second consecutive year by Berenschot in collaboration with CHRO Community.
Technological developments, such as automation and robotisation, have a drastic impact on work processes and the job market. This is one of the findings of the HR Trends 2018-2019, the largest survey conducted among HR professionals by Berenschot in cooperation with Performa and Talentsoft.
How the HR function develops in practice is largely explained by the way organisational tensions are dealt with. The most effective HR structure emerges when opposites are well understood. This is the main conclusion of a study that was conducted by Berenschot in collaboration with the Amsterdam Business School (UvA).
Employees are remarkably positive about working in the technological sector. Approximately 83% of employees see digitisation and robotisation as a promising opportunity and encourage these developments. They feel that technology makes their work more challenging and fun. Employees enjoy learning and have a need for professional training and information.
The HR world is changing rapidly. A large majority (71%) of HR professionals expects their job to change in the near future and the threat of jobs disappearing through robotisation appears to be drawing closer.
Privacy and data protection are low down on the priority list of HR departments. Although they are confronted with it every day, nearly one in ten HR professionals (8%) do not know that since the introduction of the duty to report data leaks, the Personal Data Protection Act has started to play a greater role in HR.
As per 1 September, Hans van der Molen (1966) started as the Chairman of the Executive Board of Berenschot. He is the successor of Theo Camps, who performed this role for fourteen years.
