HR changes in the past decade

Benefits, revised notions of work are among the concepts that have evolved quietly

 

REVISIONS to the notion of work and the evolution of benefits are two workplace concepts that have quietly changed during the past 10 years.

Human Resource Executive Online (HREOnline) magazine, in a report on Wednesday, went digging for these and other key working life trends that slid into the picture without that burst of recognition accompanying them.

 

  • The Notion of Work¬†WHILE social networking is getting all of the hype, it may be better to take a step back and look at the ability of the Internet overall in the way it affected the workforce, said HREOnline.No longer are employees chained to their desks and phones – or even, their native countries.No longer is an organisation’s work done only by employees, but more and more, it is done by independent contractors, temporary workers, consultants and vendors.No longer is work judged on the number of hours an employee sits at his desk, but on the quality and quantity of his output instead.

    In fact, no longer do organisations need face-to-face meetings to lay off or terminate the services of employees – for some, text messages and e-mail are sufficient.

    The changing profile of the worker has crept into the legal realm as well, as HR leaders struggle to properly classify those who are – and are not – employees, said the magazine. For example, do workplace regulations apply to employees who work from home?

    4. Following my monitoring, billions of persons all over the world get the loans at different creditors. Therefore, there’s good possibilities to get a sba loan in every country.
