HR Challenges in time of crisis
Thinking long-term in spite of pressure to act:
Lasting success through strategically right personnel measures
Quick action is needed now: Reducing costs is usually the motto. But saving at the wrong places can have negative consequences in the long run. You rather have to find flexible solutions that allow you to continue the successful development of your company as fast as possible and save costs at the same time.
A current survey of the Boston Consulting Group (survey of 883 managers) shows which HR measures are applied in crisis situations. But have they also proven themselves in the last recession?
Useful measures with real effect
Only few initiate lasting measures: Only 28% of the companies make dismissals dependent on the performance of their employees. But specifically this achieved a positive effect during the last recession with 14% and increased the commitment of the employees by 14%!
Therefore investments in the identification of the potentials and competences of your employees through well-founded audits are profitable. This is the only way you can ensure that you keep your important service providers in the company and are well structured in the personnel area also in the future.
Strategy plan shows the need to catch up
In order to save costs and make the company fit for the future at the same time Boston Consulting Group offers a 12-point action plan based on the survey conducted among 90 Senior Managers. However, real company life often shows a large gap between the importance of the HR measures and the ability to actually realize them. Much catching-up work needs to be done especially in the strategic personnel planning, performance management and in the sustainable realization.
