Unveiling HR Trends Shaping High-Performance Workforces in 2024

  Reading Time:

Trend #1: Talent acquisition is becoming more and more personal

Even though many companies have halted their recruiting efforts, the brand remains a constant even in a downturn. Companies competing for the best talent will have to work hard to rebuild their visibility and trust.

The top talent is more aware of their non-negotiable traits and sticks to them. Demand for flexible working arrangements is higher, but this generally means candidates are more rigid about where they put their talents.

In 2024 we will likely see a trend towards greater individualization of politics. These would be measures based on the employee lifecycle and company performance, rather than a blanket, company-wide approach. But what could that look like?

They could be young graduates or trainees who require mentoring and development that is best delivered in a practical, office setting. Or an older, high-performing employee with a family who needs flexibility to do their best work.

This more personal, targeted approach can be a game-changer in how employers attract and hire the best talent.

Trend #2: A targeted benchmarking and location strategy

As we head into 2024, your teams should be mindful of leveraging reliable professional data sources for benchmarking, as well as keeping an eye on key internal indicators (offer acceptance, attrition/exit, engagement data, etc.) as well as what you hear on the ground from candidates to keep.

In order to develop a truly holistic compensation strategy, you should also consider the following aspects;

  • Corporate strategy and priorities
  • Corporate culture and philosophy
  • Internal justice (fairness)
  • Benefits and Perks
  • Long-term incentives

Also, the location strategy will play a crucial role in 2024. Teams must consider the location variations in the benchmarking data and decide how to reflect this in the salary bands, taking into account the overarching talent and location strategy.

For example, some companies explicitly tie compensation to location. Others are happy to pay London-level salaries to employees in a less expensive location to attract and retain talent. The difference is a strategic decision.

This raises a whole series of questions. Especially post-pandemic, companies are considering (or reconsidering) the value of colocating teams in terms of synergy and efficiency, as well as the impact on culture and community.

Ultimately, benchmarking and location will be a big issue in 2024. Teams should regularly review and adapt their compensation strategy to keep pace with changing market conditions and organizational needs.

#Trend No. 3: The role of change and the return to the essentials

In recent years, the only constant for organizations has been change, and it will not change any time soon.

That's not a bad thing. Rather than trying to 'manage' change, organizations need to focus on increasing our readiness for change so that we can better embrace and manage change

This starts with your leadership team. You need to understand why change can be difficult and how we can empower ourselves to take responsibility for the way we lead and deal with change. At its core, it is about changing our perception of change and improving our personal and organizational relationship to change.

At the same time, we need to go back to basics and know our “why.” To do this, it's important to be clear about what your company really needs from you as an HR partner: What will really make a difference, and is it the needle that needs to be moved right now?

A challenge all HR teams face is that there are too many things that could be addressed, but not enough time or resources. If we are honest with ourselves, we also overwhelm our internal customers and are not true strategic partners.

In 2024, engagement with the company will inform not only what you will deliver, but also why you will deliver it, ensuring your HR department makes a lasting impact.
