Human resources managers have become one of the key players in responding to the situations caused by COVID in companies. One of their key roles during the pandemic has been to strike a balance between cost containment and worker protection, creating trends for the coming years.

Talking about HR trends means talking about digitalisation and flexibility but, above all, about employees. Sustainability, pay transparency, compensation for remote work, training and the value of lifelong learning (reskilling and upskilling) are some of the new inputs that will define short- and long-term remuneration policies. How to improve flexible employee remuneration by 2022? We tell you about the trends for next year in this article.

The trends in flexible pay that HR should consider

Teleworking will continue to be a key focus for many companies and may even become the norm in some sectors. In fact, over the next few years, it is estimated that 61% of organisations may consider teleworking as an advantage when offering a new vacancy in their company. This reality has led to a questioning of the current salary structure. It is important for organisations to review the remuneration of their employees based on their performance and skills.

The implementation of remote working accelerated the digitalisation process in companies. The demand for digital talent has become a relevant issue, as 90% of companies struggle to attract and retain digital talent. Organisations must take into account that new talent is very aware of its value in the market. Therefore, it is important to establish a long-term strategy to attract and retain digital talent that includes specific rewards to enhance digital skills within the organisation.

Sustainability and social responsibility remain key pillars for companies. Talent management must take into account in its programmes and strategies, rewards to seek more sustainable performance, with fairer rewards and programmes to nurture talent. Transparency determines pay and policies to achieve a good equitable scheme.

Training: a demand from employees

The new environment in which we find ourselves after the start of the pandemic has made the risks of cyber-attacks on companies evident. Human resources departments have sensitive private information and must be well protected. With cyber-attacks and data breaches on the rise, organisations will need to increase their investment in technologies that strengthen cyber-security.

What should you do to ensure that your company does not become obsolete and unprotected? You must train your employees in programming and cybersecurity. Cybersecurity training for companies must be continuous. For this, the best option is to find an official training company that takes care of adapting the content to your objectives and needs.
