    • Trends in Australian employee benefits
      The last decade has been dominated by employer needs to reduce costs and risks, combined with the transition to employee self-services. The focus of leading employers has now switched to new themes – the role of benefits in the EVP for the emerging workforce and effectiveness of benefits.
    • The changing nature of employment
      The concept of the ‘democratisation of work’ is at the forefront of the changing nature of employment. Full-time roles are being separated into parts and done by alternate means, often outside a company’s traditional boundaries and in different and lower-cost locations. In this brave new world, what questions should managers ask to take advantage of this new model?
    • Managing employment or managing work – HR as architect
      Artificial Intelligence or robotic process automation may not seem like the business of HR. It also may feel very far away. But is it? Much of HR’s current role and focus is to hire, develop, lead, engage, reward and retain employees. But what happens when the business plans for and implements cognitive automation technologies that significantly disrupt a number of roles?
    • Building flexible communications for flexible workers
      Offering greater workplace flexibility brings new challenges for employers to create a shared employee experience. It tests traditional company cultures and it may require a rethink of your overall employee value proposition and your employee communication needs.
    • Benefits managers – are you ready for 2017?
      A number of age pension and superannuation changes already in effect or coming online in 2017 mean greater uncertainties for employers – and have the potential to disrupt benefit programmes. What should benefits managers do? A good start is to assess the impact on their own workforce and the overall business and HR strategy.
    • Talent analytics tools – making the best choice
      Technology can empower leaders to make quick and effective decisions on talent. A workforce analytics tool is sizeable investment but it can have a significant return if you choose the right technology. So, what do HR teams need to consider?
    • Forecasting salary movements – the ongoing remuneration challenge
      It’s important to remember that the rate of pay growth is not a function of the cost of living but rather of the supply and demand of labour. This is one of the remuneration professional’s challenges - to help the organisation understand this, especially in the light of low CPI rates.
    • Are we approaching “peak human”?
      How you’ll source talent, what you will pay for it and what they’ll do for your business is undergoing a revolution. Does that mean we’re approaching “peak human”? For many organisations, the future relevance of their business will rely on quite different elements than those that underpin their work now.
    • Understanding risk dynamics in your remuneration framework and culture
      Boards and senior management are spending more of their time on risk dynamics but, to ensure the best possible outcomes, a key question needs to be asked. Are organisations focused on the most significant risks? Organisation culture and, almost inextricably entangled with this, the remuneration framework, are often not given the attention they warrant.
    • HR information 24/7 – are you up for the challenge?
      Technology is driving rapid change in the way HR communicates with its workforce and vice versa. Employees now have an expectation of being able to access HR content and undertake HR-related transactions – often on a 24/7 basis. Is it time your organisation looked at developing a highly functional HR App?
