Work-From-Home (WFH) is one of the main debate topics lately. WFH as well as flexible working hours are the two major retention tools for working mothers and even other employees. Time is changing very fast, and it has become necessary for the companies to build a transparent culture within, which includes trusting employees to work whenever they want. It is definitely going to improve the productivity of employees.

Most of the companies still do not believe in a formal WFH policy. The senior management too is not comfortable with this idea. On the other hand, majority of employees are keen on having such a policy.

Why employers think that WFH culture is not successful?

There are a lot of companies that still follows the traditional work culture. They believe that the following reasons make them feel that the oldies are the best policy.

  • Productive and performance doesn’t match: Employers feel that the productivity of the employees gets hampered when they work from home. Tracking mechanism to handle workforce becomes difficult.
  • Limited logistics do not allow WFH culture: There are situations (especially in the IT field) where employees are not able to contribute much in the WFH culture because of the limited logistics. Examples of such scenarios are in the supply chain management, health care and hospitality industry.
  • Unable to control employees: Employers feel that they are unable to control employees if the WFH culture is followed within the organization.

Employers do get benefits of WFH culture

Let’s see the benefits.

  • Reduced overhead: If employees work from home, then it helps employers reduce overhead expenditure. For example, there is limited need of office equipment, employers can even instruct employees to use their own phones and home computers. There are other savings, like electricity, office supplies, etc.
  • Increased Productivity: The employees who work from home are more productive as compare to the ones who work in a traditional office environment.
  • Higher Morale: Employees who have flexible working hours have higher morale and fulfill their duties sincerely. Not only this, they enjoy their job responsibilities more. This further improves the quality of work and productivity.

Conclusion

After going through the above-mentioned points, you will be able to understand that employees often value flexible working schedules. It gives them work-life balance. On the other hand, it is also beneficial for employers, such as high-rate of retention, lower operations cost, etc.

So, what are you waiting for! Think out the ways how you can implement Work-From-Home culture in your organization and bring smiles to all faces.

“Mohan completed his B-Tech in the year, 2015. Today, he is working as a customer care executive in one of the mobile companies. After six months of fruitless job-hunting, he opted for this meager job to earn his bread and butter. Whatever he learnt had gone to waste because he is unable to utilize his capabilities in the giant IT companies.” Well, this is not a unique story. There are hundreds of youth like Mohan, who have completed their educations but are not able to find employment matching with their skills.

Here is a list of the few trends recently being followed in the big-shot companies.

  • Indian IT segment is facing major slowdown. One of the top-notch IT companies has sacked approximately thousands of its employees.
  • There is a Global slowdown, which is affecting Indian IT industry’s growth also.
  • Hiring is getting slow, which might lead to add challenges for the adult population in finding jobs.

This trend is due to overall global slowdown, automation, and lack of talented professional experts in the market.

These are the indications for the ones who are not ready or scared of upgrading their skills. If you do not upgrade yourself as per the demand in the market, you will be out of the business. To overcome this issue, there is only one way left –re-skilling oneself to be on the top of the demand list.

New trend being followed by companies

The next trend of the IT industry is shifting the focus from the labor-intensive employees to proposing skilled employees in the upcoming fields of business in technology like data-analytics and cloud computing.

Various companies have started introducing skilling programs for their junior and middle staff so that they can stay competitive in the industry. These companies are trying to upgrade their employees in the most demanding technologies, like BigData, Cloud Computing, Business Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, etc.

What is Human Resource’s contribution?

The HR staff and senior management are concentrating on upgrading the skillsets of their existing staff so that these employees are can easily handle complex and crucial projects. This process will gradually assist companies to retain the deserving and loyal employees as well as save cost and time to hire newbies from outside.

  • HR’s new focus – Upgrading the skillsets rather than recruiting

HR department is focusing at a faster pace to train and upgrade existing workforce. This training includes how employees should work on more crucial and complex projects. There are times when few positions are flagged-off for hiring and re-assigned to HR team for an internal action. The main focus of HR is to identify employees from the existing workforce and upgrading them instead of hiring from outside.

  • The change management

It is not necessary that everyone in the company is flexible. Therefore, it becomes difficult for the HR to bring in the change, like reskilling. This change might become scary for some of the employees and they will be under the pressure. It is important for the new ones and existing employees (especially in the technology world) to accept the change and show high-level of learning capability and willingness. In this case, HR has to come up with different traits to experiment for the entire workforce.

  • Developing advanced skills

Everyday new technology is getting introduced in the market. Therefore, it is important to have niche skills. These skills combine the understanding of domain, technology, and consulting which is demanded at a high-rate. It is not necessary that you get these high-end skills at the lower level and, that is why, providing training will be a biggest game changer.

Conclusion

At this time when the IT sector is slowing down at a higher speed, it is time to look within the organization and start reskilling the existing employees at a fast speed. On the other hand, it is vital for the employees to come out of their comfort zone and be ready for the up-skilling programs being introduced by HR and senior management.

Hey, HRs! Focus on Re-skilling and not Recruitment

Gender equality is very important and can only be achieved when people across the organization gets access and enjoy the same resources, opportunities, rewards, regardless of gender. It is essential for the workplace to not just include women but also go above and beyond towards being sensitive to their needs.

Here are few points that one should keep in mind to create a better workplace for women employees.

Work-Life Balance

Make sure that you help women employees balance their home and personal life with the pressure of the workplace. To bring better work-life balance, it will be appreciated if you introduce benefits, such as work-from-home and part-time work options for women employees.

Empower Leadership

Leadership is an inbuilt quality in women. You can see the live example of how women lead household chores, as if they are born to handle it perfectly. It is very essential that the senior management should start recognizing women’s talent and grant them equal opportunities to grow in leadership roles.

Fair Credit

Women have a habit to downplay their accomplishments. In addition to that, male employees have a habit to parade their work openly and celebrate their victory at work. It will be really good, if a fair credit is given to all the deserving female employees so that they are motivated towards making their organization successful.

Assign Mentorship Programs

There are not enough women in senior management to mentor all newbies and existing employees. Companies should promote programs where they assign mentorship projects to senior female employees to showcase as well as share their capabilities and experiences with other employees.

Equal Opportunities for Both

To make female workers strong, it is necessary that they should be treated as equal as men. For example, they should be given same targets and goals as their male counterparts. It will make them more stronger and give them a chance to prove that they not behind anyone in doing any kind of work.

Conclusion

Do not underestimate the power of working women! If given a chance, these women can do anything to make an organization successful. Warren Buffet once admitted that his success could be partially attributed to the fact that he was competing with only half the population, i.e., only men! It cannot be denied that women are breaking through the glass ceiling in various spheres in the last few decades. To say that there is parity would be a gross overstatement. There is much to be done before we can achieve such a balance! A better workplace will definitely contribute towards bringing that balance.

After Goods and Services Tax (GST) came into limelight, HR must work hard in terms of rethinking and bringing new guidelines that can satisfy both employee and employer.

GST is a tax reform that is expected to transform the Indian economy and catapult its growth. Its main objective is to streamline India’s complicated indirect taxes being levied by Union and State Governments. Adopting changes like these is never easy. Everyone including small and large business entities are busy in understanding GST and complying with its regime. Even the Human Resources departments are engaged in determining the impact GST has on financial benefits for their employees under various categories across the board.

Every new thing has got teething issues and so do implementing GST! Let us see some of these issues that you might face at the time of implementing this unique tax system.

Corporate gifts

In India, there is a tradition that most of the employers follow – distributing gifts among their staff on special occasions. For example, Diwali is one of the festivals where companies distribute gifts to its workforce. There are other occasions also, like birthdays, long tenure, farewell, etc. where employers gift something either in cash or kind to their employees. Now, all these varieties of gifts will come under GST.

GST needs to be paid if the gift’s worth increases beyond rupees fifty thousand for a particular financial year. So, how will it be calculated? Well, if the combined value of the gifts exceeds rupees fifty thousand, then GST will be applied on the value beyond rupees fifty thousand. However, GST will be applied on the total value of an individual gift if it is worth more than rupees fifty thousand.

So, what is an additional work for HR? HR and all the related departments need to track the value of each and every gift given to its employees in the given financial year in order to determine how much GST needs to be applied.

Company sponsored transportation and other subsidized facilities

Now a day, most of the companies provide pick-up and drop facility to its employee. If it is provided as a benefit in the employee’s contract, GST will not be applicable in such a case. On the other hand, if it is not mentioned in the employment contract, then it will be determined as a service provided by the employer to its employee, which will attract GST.

The HR people have to be on their toes with active brains to come out with new ideas in order to modify their contract with the transport vendors. The contracts can be modified to mention that the transportation services are a direct offering to the staff by the vendors and they are merely a mediator for recovering invoices on behalf of the vendors from the employees.

Subsidized or company sponsored food facility

Companies do offer food to its workforce at subsidized rates or completely sponsored. There are special occasions, such as festivals when companies offer delicious food to its employees. In such scenarios, GST has to be paid on the sum being paid to the food vendor.

However, there is a way out from it! The company can claim the credit only when it is treated as an outward supply at an open market price for its employees. There is a requirement of amendment in the existing contract where companies have to show that food is being supplied directly to the staff by the food vendors and the company is just an entity assisting in recovering the invoices from the staff.

Transactions remain unaffected by GST

There is some good news also! Besides the employer-employee transactions mentioned so far, there are some areas yet to be covered by GST. Listed below are a few transactions that are not impacted as yet by GST.

  • Medical insurance and health checkups
  • Assets provided by the company, such as computing devices, mobiles, etc.
  • Reimbursements towards mobile
  • Benefits towards relocation
  • Insurance towards personal
  • Long service award
  • Company vehicle
  • Temporary accommodation
  • Leasing of house
  • Employee referrals

Conclusion

Irrespective of the case, it is important that HR has to foresee all processes as well as all transactions that are going to be affected by GST. Also, the HR and senior management have to proactively look into other unnoticed areas to refine and streamline existing process more.

Nascent stages of introducing any new change, especially a change as radical as GST required a lot of transparency in communication and responsiveness to questions and concerns. It is important that the HR department provides communication to the stakeholders that include employees for all changes being introduced.

When we regret something, then the first question that pops up in our mind is – what went wrong? The Regret Attrition metrics is all about understanding of what went wrong. In a layman’s term, a regretted attrition refers to the employees that the organization truly regrets upon losing. Actually, it refers to the voluntarily attrition by highly talented and key contributors impacting the business of the company. This excludes the employees who are asked to leave the organization due to poor performance, or some other reason.

Sometimes, employers get uneasy when asked to admit that things didn’t go right, which often lead them to measure all attrition together and not breaking the numbers into more specific categories, such as Regret Attrition and Unregretted Attrition.

Quite often the senior management gets to know about the key employees, when they are about to quit the organization. It is very important that the organization keeps a track of losing the valuable resources or high potential employees. Regret Attrition is one of the HR metrics that helps in tracking these details. But, companies are following a trend where they summarize the regret attrition of the entire company all-together, which is not a good idea. It will not benefit anyone, as it will not have any micro level details. Instead, there should be a detailed study to see how this attrition is affecting the company.

Let us throw some light on how to handle key resources and classify them as ‘Regret Attrition’ at the time of exit.

  • Always try to make Regretted exits a part of analytics dashboard.
  • There should be a way where managers are able to mark ‘really regretted’ for the employees for whom they actually feel regretted. There should be an option for them to provide a remark of why they have been marked as ‘really regretted’. Do not judge the reasons. Just note them for future purpose.
  • When you have got a good sum of ‘really regretted’ exits (try to come up with some number that you will consider), explore the reasons, and then generate a list containing top reasons classified as ‘really regretted’.
  • Once this exercise is done thoroughly, you will get a list containing major reasons. This list will help managers to select any one of the reasons in the future.
  • This exercise will help you in the long run. After sometime you will have a tangible list of the ‘really regretted’ reasons that should fall into the ‘really regretted’ section. It will also help you in getting data-points where you need to take actions.

Conclusion

This is an easy as well as simple technique that will definitely help you in a long run. It will help you to design some solution targeting retention techniques. This is the way that should help you to find out who is the crucial resource for the organization!

  • Some companies have combined the traditional training with the virtual training.
