Let's go through the below points in which we will reflect on 3 HR trends we are expecting in 2021 and beyond.
1. Home is the New Office
This is the most visible change in 2020 when the global overnight shift to remote work. Working from home had already become increasingly common among employees before the start of the pandemic. Many workplace experts agree that remote working is here to stay for long. Regardless of technology, location and project management tools can help improve employees' productivity to provide a remarkable change in the results. These tools can also help employees to improve functionality and usability.
2. Workflow Automation

3. Learning & Development For Business Success
Pandemic has forced a shift from in-person learning to e-learning, online coaching, AR, VR. One of the critical HR trends is learning and development. However, there was already a strong need for upskilling a large part of the global workforce before COVID-19. Nowadays, employers should focus on their current employees rather than continuously searching for new skilled talent. The most efficient way to compete is to upskill your HR team, ensuring that they have the expertise to secure success in a changing future.
