What Employees and Employers Really Value at Work

Several million workers worldwide quit their jobs every month, costing their organizations time and money. The solution? Engaging employees and creating a better place to work, discusses Patrick Ahern, VP of Client Success at Reward Gateway.

Employee Engagement và những sự thật gây sốc về thuật ngữ này

With low unemployment and a good market for job opportunities, today’s employees are on the move more than ever before. According to a recent Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), over 3.5 million Americans quit their jobs every month. This is an alarming statistic considering how much it costs from a monetary and productivity standpoint to train a new employee. On average, it costs small businesses about $1,200 to train a new hire and takes eight to 26 weeks for that person to achieve full productivity.
With this in mind, businesses should be motivated to keep their best employees, and the best way to do that is by keeping them engaged. Engagement is integral to business success, and healthy workplace cultures that foster growth and community can keep employees invested in a company’s mission. An environment built on shared values, healthy communication, and collaboration is what all employers should strive to achieve. With that said, employers and employees are not always aligned when it comes to what they want from their work. Take the below infographic, for example, as to what employees and employers value at work.
So, how can employers look at their businesses holistically to come up with solutions that will keep their top talent invested in their company’s mission?

First, businesses need to define their employee value proposition (EVP) to build long-term success. An EVP is what makes an organization stand out above competitors. For example, if a strong candidate was offered a job at two organizations, what would compel them to choose your offer over the other one? Is it their link to the purpose, mission, and values of your organization? Is it the way you recognize and reward achievers, providing them with opportunities to grow and progress in their careers? Perhaps it’s the compensation package or creative perks you offer to your people.
Because each person will value different things, improving and strengthening EVP is essential to attracting and retaining engaged and productive employees. The recognition reflects and embeds a company’s culture and shines a spotlight on the most impactful individuals and teams while making it clear to new starters what success looks like.

By rewarding people based on a value system, employers can continually communicate and reinforce the company’s purpose, while talking to employees on how to arrive at success. A recent study showed that more than 90 percent of HR professionals agree that having a sufficient employee reward and recognition program has a positive effect on retention, and nearly the same amount agree that recognition drives business results.

Once you’ve defined your value proposition, and begin implementing a system that puts people first, the challenge is maintaining those systems in place to ensure that your people are getting the most out of their opportunities. To keep employees connected, employers must look at reward and recognition strategies and decide what makes the most sense for their employee base. Then, they must continuously reinforce those tactics through the appropriate channels.

One way to recognize employees is by creating spaces and opportunities for people to connect digitally. This may mean investing in tools that enable more video conference calls, instant messages, or blogs that are written and published by people within the business. Additionally, employers can also introduce a peer-to-peer recognition and reward program with a rolling social recognition wall that displays accomplishments in real-time. Seeing the everyday success celebrated makes remote employees feel visible and valued, and encourages interaction by enabling employees to react to and comment on ecards and awards. Finally, using your HR platforms as opportunities to showcase and strengthen your brand provides a more engaging and impactful experience for your people. Where possible, create a one-stop-shop where people can access all the tools you’ve invested in to stand out as a great place to work, like voluntary benefits, communications, recognition, and more.

Ultimately, what works for one organization might not work for another. It takes time to understand what your employees need and value. It takes even more time to build a system designed to accurately keep them engaged and connected to your company’s purpose. Creating an environment where workers are motivated and involved will help you stand out as a great place to work and achieve your business objectives.

2021 Recruiting Trends Shaped by the Pandemic

Last year was tough on recruiters. The pandemic and its repercussions devastated some talent acquisition teams, heaped new demands on others, and proved to be a historic change agent as virtually recruiting and onboarding a remote workforce became the norm for many.

2020’s adversities will certainly inform talent acquisition trends in 2021. More companies will adopt virtual recruiting technologies; shift talent attraction efforts to remote candidates; consider internal talent pools; and focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. The best recruiters will take the opportunity to add new skills, adapt as needed and show their value to the organization.

Over 1,500 talent acquisition professionals from 28 countries identified these trends in a survey conducted by LinkedIn and supplemented by data generated by more than 760 million members on the professional networking site.

Daniel Chait, CEO of New York City-based Greenhouse, one of the fastest-growing recruiting software providers, envisions the talent acquisition function playing a major role in what he calls the “great rehiring.”

“When COVID is mitigated and life can start returning to normal, businesses will need to quickly gear back up,” Chait said. “If things go well, it’s possible that more people will re-enter the workforce in 2021 than in any single year on record.”

Virtual Hiring Is Here to Stay

In the same way that a hybrid workforce of onsite and remote employees will become more normalized, a hiring process that combines virtual and in-person processes will become increasingly standard due to the associated cost and time savings, according to 70 percent of respondents to the LinkedIn survey.Virtual recruitment is the new face of hiring, thanks to Covid-19 -  Education Today News

“Job interviews will largely continue to be conducted virtually,” said Candace Nicolls, SHRM-SCP, senior vice president of people and workplace at Snagajob, a Glen Allen, Va.-based online staffing platform that specializes in matching candidates to hourly wage jobs. “Even for businesses resuming in-person operations, I expect that virtual and automated interviews will instead replace many in-person touchpoints, helping to accelerate timelines while also providing a critical layer of safety as we continue to observe social distancing rules.”

Ryan Healy, president and co-founder of Brazen, a virtual hiring event platform, said virtual recruiting in 2020 helped organizations streamline recruiting processes, improve diversity hiring and hire better talent by reaching across geographic barriers.

“These gains mean virtual recruiting has earned its place in the ongoing talent acquisition strategies of nearly every industry across the country, and employers will continue to use virtual recruiting alongside more-traditional in-person recruiting and interviewing once it’s safe to meet with candidates face to face again,” he said.

But Addison Group CEO Thomas Moran contends that the future workplace will be less remote than many are forecasting. “As the COVID-19 vaccine takes hold, people will welcome a return to the office to be with their colleagues,” he said. “While the pandemic may have taught us just how resilient we can be working remotely for an extended period via Zoom conference calls, it is not sustainable. Humans are a social species and ultimately need that direct, in-person contact and connection with one another.”

Companies Will Emphasize Internal Hiring

Internal mobility is up 20 percent since the onset of COVID-19, according to LinkedIn data.

In addition, 50 percent of respondents expect their recruiting budget to decrease this year while 66 percent anticipate their learning and development (L&D) budget to increase or stay the same. Some experts believe that employers will build their workforce through internal mobility programs tied to reskilling initiatives or engage contingent talent instead of hiring externally. Others predict that companies will continue to move from static jobs toward project-based, cross-functional work dictated by changing business needs.

Increased engagement, lower costs and a shorter hiring process are a few of the benefits of the shift to internal mobility, but the biggest benefit may be improved retention, said Mark Lobosco, vice president of talent solutions at LinkedIn. “Our data show that employees stay 41 percent longer at companies that hire internally compared to those that don’t,” he said. “As companies continue to experience the benefits of internal mobility, we’ll begin to see it shift from an ad hoc solution to an essential corporate strategy. This will lead to HR and L&D partnering closer than ever before to better understand existing skill sets, address skill gaps in their organization and build more robust internal mobility programs.”

David Green, executive consultant on people analytics and director at Insight222, a London-based consulting firm, suggested that “skills are the new currency” in the workplace, and companies like IBM, Novartis and Unilever are building cultures where skills are of central importance. “To achieve this, they have brought siloed HR programs such as learning, career and internal mobility together with skills and technology that enables personalization to create a thriving marketplace for talent,” he said. “With the pandemic increasing the focus even more on internal mobility, the rise of the talent marketplace will gain pace in 2021.”

Tim Sackett, SHRM-SCP, president of HRU Technical Resources, an engineering and design staffing firm based in Lansing, Mich., agreed that building internal talent will ultimately be better in the long run, but acquiring new talent through external hiring or contingent staffing is the best bet for a volatile short-term outlook.

“2021 is not the time to decide to build talent, at least not in the first two quarters,” he said. “Most organizations have already started renting talent, and we see contingent labor as a percent of the workforce rising as organizations determine how the economy will come back. In 2021, organizations want to make sure that the organization can sustain itself in the long term before adding permanent headcount. The focus on hiring more contingent is a better strategy over the next 12-18 months, to ensure they will have much more flexibility and the ability to move quickly to move their headcount up and down based on immediate business needs.”

Recruiters Will Play a Bigger Role in DE&I

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) will be a continuing focus area for recruiters, especially because more candidates will make job choices based on their assessment of a company’s visible DE&I commitment, according to experts.

“Companies recognize that they are being scrutinized more than ever by stakeholders and are committing to aggressive diversity targets,” said Dan Schawbel, a bestselling author and managing partner at Workplace Intelligence, a New York City-based HR research and advisory firm. “This year, 70 percent of job seekers said they want to work for a company that demonstrates a commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

Nearly half (47 percent) of talent professionals told LinkedIn that hiring managers are not held accountable for interviewing a diverse slate of candidates. Some experts believe that more recruiters will work to remove arbitrary entry barriers like educational requirements from job qualifications, advocate more for a diverse pipeline of candidates and hold hiring managers accountable for moving those candidates through the hiring process.

“Diversity is a business-critical imperative and one that recruiting can lead,” Lobosco said. “Not only is it imperative that recruiters deliver a diverse pipeline of candidates, but they must also play an important advisory role for the hiring managers they support. This could be through restructuring hiring processes to reduce bias, building diverse interview panels and mandating data-driven reporting against diversity goals.”

Cheryl Roubian, vice president of people at Greenhouse, said more companies are looking for tools to help them root out bias in the hiring process and build systems that promote and develop employees equitably. “This is far from being a new idea, but the confluence of increased awareness, the availability of talent and geographic flexibility will continue to amplify the importance of investing in the right tools to build more diverse teams.”    

Recruiters Will Expand Skill Sets

The No. 1 skill for recruiters to embrace in 2021 is adaptability, according to LinkedIn’s survey.

“This isn’t surprising, given the challenges we faced last year,” Lobosco said. “Recruiters are rapidly adding skills like bringing clarity to talent data, reshaping employer branding and fine-tuning the virtual hiring process.”

Notably, the fastest-growing pivot for recruiters during the pandemic was personal development.

“We saw recruiters massively increase their appetite for learning as soon as COVID-19 hit last March, more than doubling their normal learning consumption in the following months,” said Johnny Campbell, CEO of Dublin-based SocialTalent, a learning platform for recruiters. “Hot topics included talent advisory training, virtual interviewing, being productive while working remotely, virtual onboarding and internal mobility. Learning how to be better talent advisors is always a popular topic for recruiters, but many more sought it out for the first time as their hiring managers frantically reached out to them with a massive demand for information about the evolving labor market.”

Colleen Garrett, SHRM-CP, was a recruiter at a retirement community in Fort Myers, Fla., where hiring slowed down considerably as the coronavirus spread. She said she looked at the downtime as an opportunity to “think outside the box.”  

“It was a time to take a step back, audit processes, figure out what had been working in the past, what hadn’t been working and how the future was going to change,” said Garrett, currently a recruiter at health care staffing provider Clipboard Health.

She spent time rethinking talent strategy, learning how to integrate new talent acquisition tools to workflows, developing training manuals, and learning about topics like social recruiting and how SEO factors into job posts.

She recommends that recruiters in 2021 spend time developing skills in virtual interviewing, onboarding new hires, understanding talent metrics, and showing empathy and compassion.

“Naturally, recruiters are people-centric,” Garrett said. “But 2020 wasn’t just hard because of the pandemic, but also because of the economic fallout and all the people who are jobless or displaced in their career. It is our duty to go the extra mile, to understand their struggle and what their needs are.”

Đàm phán lương chưa bao giờ là việc dễ dàng. Một câu trả lời khéo léo sẽ quyết định việc bạn có được mức lương tương xứng với năng lực hay không.

Tác giả cuốn sách nổi tiếng “Làm vừa lòng kẻ bá quyền nơi công sở: Bạn sẽ điều chỉnh hành vi thiếu chín chắn của sếp như thế nào trong khi vẫn có thể chú trọng vào việc phát triển sự nghiệp của mình”, chuyên gia về việc làm và tuyển dụng Lyn Taylor đã đưa ra một số lời khuyên hữu ích về vấn đề đàm phán lương.

Khi nhà tuyển dụng hỏi “Mức lương thế nào sẽ khiến bạn hài lòng?” thì bạn phải “biết mình biết ta, trăm trận trăm thắng”. Khi bạn biết được giá trị của bản thân thì bạn sẽ đạt được mục đích thương lượng tốt nhất.

1. Xác định mức lương mong muốn, nhưng không phải một con số cụ thể

Bạn có thể đưa ra phạm vi thu nhập bạn có thể chấp nhận cho công việc này. Theo Lyn Taylor, khi đàm phán lương hãy luôn thực tế và giữ vững quan điểm của mình. Xác định vị trí của bạn và đưa ra mức lương từ X đến Y mà bạn nghĩ mình xứng đáng.

2. Luôn trung thực

Đừng bao giờ ba hoa về mức lương bạn từng được nhận trong công việc trước hòng nâng giá bản thân. Bạn nên thành thật với nhà tuyển dụng bằng cách đi thẳng vào vấn đề và nói “Lương bổng là một khoản quan trọng, nhưng em cũng đang tìm một điều mới mẻ cho công việc tiếp theo của mình như tiềm năng phát triển ngành nghề hoặc môi trường làm việc tốt, hiệu quả hơn. Anh/chị có thể cho em biết ngân sách dành cho vị trí này để chúng ta bàn bạc tốt hơn ạ”.

3. Có cái nhìn bao quát để đưa ra con số hợp lý

Bạn cũng nên tìm hiểu thêm về tiền thưởng, mức hưu trí, khoản phụ cấp, hỗ trợ hay đãi ngộ của công ty với nhân viên. Cần tìm hiểu kỹ càng và đánh giá bao quát tình hình trước khi đưa ra con số cụ thể.

Con số bạn đưa ra cần dựa vào tình hình thực tế và năng lực của chính bạn. Nếu muốn đàm phán lương cao, bạn nên chuẩn bị lí do để thuyết phục nhà tuyển dụng rằng bạn xứng đáng với con số đó.

Ví dụ: Khi đàm phán lương mà bạn nói “Em đang kiếm được 6 triệu mỗi tháng và em mong muốn sẽ kiếm được 7 triệu với công việc mới”, bạn sẽ chỉ nhận được một cái nhíu mày của nhà tuyển dụng. Nhưng nếu bạn giải thích hợp lý rằng người chủ cũ đã trả cho bạn một mức lương chưa tương xứng với năng lực của mình thì có thể nhà tuyển dụng sẽ đánh giá bạn cao hơn.

4. Giữ vững quan điểm

Đừng bao giờ đưa ra một con số và sau đó dễ dàng bị “đánh bại” trước lí lẽ của nhà tuyển dụng khi đàm phán lương. Nếu bạn đã tìm hiểu kỹ thị trường việc làm và chắc chắn bản thân xứng đáng với mức lương đó, hãy giữ vững quan điểm. Có thể bạn sẽ phải nhân nhượng một chút, nhưng đừng để đối phương nghĩ rằng bạn dễ dàng chấp nhận lùi bước.

5. Thỏa thuận thời gian thử việc

Thời gian thử việc rất quan trọng. Có thể nhà tuyển dụng chấp thuận trả mức lương cao cho bạn, nhưng thời gian thử việc bạn sẽ chỉ nhận được 70 – 80% mức lương thỏa thuận. Hãy làm rõ thời gian thử việc và các điều kiện kèm theo khi đàm phán lương. Thông thường các công ty có thời gian thử việc 2 tháng. Bạn nên cân nhắc vì trong nhiều trường hợp, thỏa thuận về thời gian thử việc không rõ ràng dẫn đến tình trạng bạn đi làm mãi mà mức lương không tăng lên như thỏa thuận.

Hy vọng những chia sẻ của chuyên gia nhân sự Lyn Taylor sẽ giúp ích nhiều cho bạn trong công cuộc đạt đến mức lương mong muốn nhé!
