Human Resource Issues
Managing teams of any size is always a challenge. The ability to respond to the behavioural changes of the teams and provide a fair and consistent solution is the key to the effective running of the organisation. Human Resource issues can be typically categorised into the below areas:
Compensation and Benefits
Employee morale fluctuates according to the satisfaction levels of compensation and benefits provided to them. These can be structured in many forms and will vary from organisation to organisation. What is important to management is that compensation and benefits provided must be closely in-line with market practices and remain current in order to maintain employee morale.
Recruitment and Retention
Finding an employee is the easy part, the challenge is to find the right employee and retain them for the long term. Organisations often do not have formalised plans and procedures for retaining employees, let alone be able to retain the good employees that are hired. As such, when an employee does not have a longer-term view of the possible direction of their career path, morale and productivity eventually drops.
Learning and Development
The world today is a much smaller world connected by ever improving technology and fast changing demands. It is therefore vital that employees are kept up to date on changes relevant to the business, so that they are able to respond to the changes of the market and demands by customers.
