With the start of the new year, it’s time to start looking ahead to what the next 12 months have in store. This year, Hiring managers will have to manage with the same workplace concerns that have dominated the last several years: skills gaps, a competitive hiring market and, as always, the time constraint. In 2020, however, we can expect new changes happening in this year. Let’s take a look at some of the HR actions in place to watch for this year:
Employee Engagement will become even more important
With record low unemployment, job seekers with in-demand skills can afford to be picky about what companies they choose to work for. When it comes to recruiting, not only do HR managers need to make sure they’re offering competitive compensation and benefits, they’ll also need to take a closer look at the state of their engagement parameters.
While it can be challenging to find the time to take stock of employee engagement and morale (much less do anything to fix it), HR departments can’t afford to let negative cultural traits go unaddressed. Potential hires will tap into their personal and professional networks— and look at review sites like Glassdoor , Pay scale – to know about what to expect in any given workplace.
That is why companies and their recruiting team with their corporate engagement teams have to work on creating an excellent on-boarding experience . Studies have always proved the recruits who receive an outstanding on-boarding experience tends to stay longer.
Talent Mapping , Upskilling and Reskilling

With large of employees with old skills , new skills have to be reskilled in the existing workforce. HR organization needs to play a major role in reskilling the existing employees. Mapping the existing talent and upskilling employees has proven to boost employee productivity and reduce employee turnover.
In the coming years , HR organization has this challenge to decide how to upskill and reskill teams, departments last change the culture of the company.
Role of AI in HR
It’s no surprise that HR operations who were called as a paper pushers have become strategic with the fast implementation of AI. With all the essential functions of the job, many of them high-stakes and time-sensitive, it’s important to find creative ways to get everything done. Artificial intelligence has already proven useful in other contexts across industries in the past few years. In 2020, we’re likely to see how it can help streamline HR practices.
While they’re not in widespread use at the moment, industry experts predict that A.I.-powered chat bots will revolutionise the recruitment process they will have a wide variety of potential applications. In the recruiting process, A.I. can help with screening applicants, scheduling interviews, and answering common questions from candidates. Internally, they can save HR managers time by pointing employees toward the resources they need to answer any questions related to pay, benefits, or other HR processes.
In the future, they’ll ask an intelligent agent that will answer their question.” Since this technology has the potential to prevent daily disruptions and save Corporate HR several hours of work each week, expect to see some larger companies adopt it in the coming year.
