Top Employers Institute HR Trends Report 2018

2018 has been a year of significant change in the ever-evolving world of HR–with many organisations re-aligning their HR policies to place employee satisfaction at the centre of their business strategies. This fundamental shift has allowed Top Employers Institute – the global authority on recognising the excellence is people practices – to highlight some of these findings in their 2018 HR Trends Report.

Through their certification programme, Top Employers Institute has brought together this wealth of knowledge attained from over 1 300 certified Top Employers and created a melting pot of insights in the form of this report. In these findings, you will discover what Top Employers are doing to attract, retain and engage with their employees to enrich the world of work.

Key trends extracted from the findings in the HR Trends Report for 2018 included topics such as creating a future-proof workforce, culture change driving the operational impact of HR and improving employee experience. All of these hot topics showcases various ways in which businesses can adapt to make sure that they are ‘future-fit’ in HR practices including Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, On-boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits and Culture (all of which are topics covered in the Top Employers Institute HR Survey during the certification process).

Top Employers Institute accelerates the impact of people strategies to enrich the world of work, therefore allowing organisations to position their company among the world’s leading employers. Becoming certified and recognised brings an array of benefits including the opportunity to benchmark their practices, align their policies, connect with other Top Employers around the globe and leveraging recognition through employer branding.
