Helen Gilbert of Personneltoday reported that Employers are planning on overhauling the way their organisations manage people post-recession, which could spell significant changes to HR models over the next decade, according to new research.
A study of about 70 UK CEOs found that 85% are planning to alter the way their organisations manage people as a consequence of the economic crisis.
Four in five (81%) plan to address staff morale through reform and increased investment, the PricewaterhouseCoopers 13th Annual CEO Survey report showed.
Meanwhile, more than half (59%) plan to make changes to flexible working, over one-third (42%) hope to increase head count over the next 12 months, and two in three (65%) expect to increase investment in training and development.
“Given the strong focus CEOs appear to be placing on people-management strategy and processes, we expect to see significant changes to HR models over this decade.”
