Trends in Human Resources are nothing new and Orla Brennan speaks about how millennials are driving a change in hiring trends as they focus on and care about the branding of their potential employer as well as broader initiatives like their Corporate Social Responsibility track record. In addition, companies need to respond to employees joining from overseas and helping them adapt to the company culture but also adapting the company culture as necessary.
There are many ways to help companies retain staff such as agile working and mentorship programmes. Brennan also speaks about the reasons staff may leave companies whether that’s because it’s their natural term or that employees feel that they don’t have any influence on strategy or the company’s direction.
