HR’s Time To Take Action

In every profession, the debate is whether man or machines will win the race. Like all other professions, HR jobs are at a threat. In this age of digitalization and social disruption, traditional HR is irrelevant for today’s era of business. If HR professionals do not step up to evolve with the changing workplace, this profession will risk being shut out from organisations completely.

It is therefore imperative for HR professionals re-brand this “dying” profession to ensure that HR continues to thrive within the organisation. Here are some ways in which HR can take actionable steps to ensure HR transformation within the organisation.


Get Involved

Encourage community efforts within the organisation. Organisation regular community outreach programmes to encourage employees to participate. At the same time, this will help HR evolve beyond merely employee-centric but people-centric as well.

Outreach Efforts

Whether it is within the organisation, to university students or to clients, spread the word on your mission to re-band HR. This will help to ensure that everyone, including HR is working towards to same goal in growing HR into the industry that the workplace envisions in future.

Practice what you preach

Make it happen. If you want to transform HR into the profession that you envision, you will need to do your part to encourage change. It can be simple amendments such as changing the HR processes within the workplace or equipping HR professionals with IT skills to tackle digitalisation within the workplace.

Seek Feedback

Actively seek feedback – whether it is from employees, senior leaders or even external HR professional organisations. These people are likely to provide you with advice from an external point of view. At the same time, they are the best people who will help you advocate your HR outreach efforts within the organisations.

The workplace is constantly coming up with new buzzwords – and the latest buzzword in the market (if you have not heard) is jobbymoon.

According to the New York Times, jobbymoon essentially means taking a holiday after leaving a job and before starting on a new job. It is similar to the gap year that students tend to take during their university years. Additionally, this is not to be confused with bleisure travel, which blurs the line between business and recreational travels.

In the workplace, the amount of work is limitless. There will always be work to do - regardless of the urgency and the amount of effort and man hours required. It is no wonder that workplace stress is on the rise in Singapore.

According to a 2016 survey “Working In Asia”, conducted by Roffey Park, results found that employees in Singapore spend more hours at work as opposed to their counterparts in Hong Kong and China. Additionally, more than half of these surveyed employees have mentioned that their stress level has increased over the past six months.
