It’s officially Autumn! The clocks have gone back, the jumpers have been tugged out and before you know it, it’ll be time for mulled wine and gingerbread houses.
But in the world of HR, the looming winter is a source of stress and strain: how will we keep the heating on for those few days a week in the office? How will we help our people keep their heating on? How do we best communicate and reassure, yet still drive performance during such uncertain and tough times?
More importantly, with the scrabble for talent still in full swing, compensation & benefits, reward & recognition and career progression are all additional worries.
However, in a holistic HR strategy, those ‘extras’ are actually the main bread and butter for acquiring, retaining and promoting best in class talent. That’s why our November issue is all about Rewards and Recognition: from Indeed Flex’s video feature on how to recognise people in any industry, to Toyota’s ‘revved up’ approach to communicating and rewarding.
This month we also have features on how the HR pros at Clarins make the most of their day and a case study on how energy company E.ON is shining a light on recognising employees as part of company culture.
