Leadership

Leaders - develop or parachute.

The best practice is to develop them internally. However, in case you do not have a right fit you can look outside but please, please, and please do not compromise just for the sake of doing it internally.

This is what kills the organization, which is compromises for the sake of our PDRs, to look good in the region, D&I agenda, or to please our bosses.

Role of HR - Strategic or Operational

HR is one of the pillar departments of any organization and plays a vital role in its success. Expectation from HR professionals is to play a combination of Strategic and Operational role for a sustained competitive advantage and long-term success of any organization.

A strategic HR function aligns its initiatives and activities with the overall business strategy. Its focus is to attract, develop, motivate, and retain employees to achieve short- and long-term business objectives.

Operational side of HR function focuses on day to day activities to ensure quality service are provided at the lowest possible costs to the organization.

Coaching

Main characteristics of Coaching is to listen, ask and provide guidance rather than tell; this is where most of the coaches get failed.

What they do is they start telling about themselves, their products, their achievements and so on so forth.

You need to provoke thoughts rather than giving directions.

Workplace Flexibility

Date : October 02, 2020

Future of work in some cases is already here. Two powerful forces will shape 2021 i.e. artificial intelligence and on-and off-balance-sheet talent. The role of emerging technology in organisational delivery across the workplace is key in 2021. Organizations needs to focus on seizing the unrivalled opportunity of AI, whether through the effect of big data in driving efficiency, or exploring ethical AI in a world of automation.

Work from home will continue in most part of 2021 if not throughout the year. Google and Facebook said in 2021, they would welcome staff back and reopen their offices to employees who have been working remotely. So, the remote workers ought to keep working from home until 2021. Amazon said that employees working at its headquarters would keep working from home until October, which is the minimum period according to Amazon.

In the case of Microsoft, the company said it would allow some of its staff to return to offices while the rest may keep working from home till October this year. Microsoft President, Brad Smith, said it can help the economy with remote work more than being in a designated office. Twitter, on the other hand, said its employees could go on working from home for as long as they want, but there will probably be options to also resume work in offices for employees who prefer that.
