Top 5 challenges being faced by HR

Today’s human resources leaders face a unique and fluid environment when it comes to hiring and managing an organisation’s workforce. In our fast-paced business/technology world and a changing job market, what are the challenges being faced by HR departments so far in 2018?


  1. Battle for Top Talent

The battle for top talent is fiercer as the number of retiring baby boomers far outstrips new skilled entrants into the workforce.


  1. Effectively Handling Sexual Harassment Issues

As workers may become more comfortable voicing complaints about workplace sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour, HR departments have had to find a way to ensure they educate their workforces on exactly what constitutes sexual harassment.


  1. C-Suite Suitable
