  • Some food for thought to take on holiday : editorial
    • Authors: Alan Hosking
      Abstract: Over the years, at this time of the year, when speaking about taking a break from work for a summer holiday, many HR Directors tell me that they take their copies of HR Future with them to do some leisurely reading and some strategic thinking for the year ahead. It's easy to say, "That's just sad," but that's the nature of a director's position - their minds are always on the go, thinking ahead. And so they should. One put it like this: "I take my copies of HR Future with me to the beach, make myself comfortable under the beach umbrella while my wife lies tanning next to me and the kids play in the water, and then do some reading and reflecting on what I'm going to achieve in the new year. I use the magazine to get some good ideas to take our company's people into the future."

  • Use your power tools wisely : cover story - leadership
    • Authors: Matt Haddon
      Abstract: The word "power" has had a dark stigma for many years, and there is much debate has to how that stigma has come about. Many believe that power corrupts even the greatest men. Others believe that allowing others to have power is to lose your own power, while most believe that Eskom is the source of all power!

  • Initiate an HR transformation you can be proud of : international waters -
           HR secrets
    • Authors: David Creelman
      Abstract: If you studied science or engineering (back in the day), you probably still find the standard practice of HR a bit odd. As a profession, we are quick to adopt faddish practices because they are new, or sound good, or because someone else is doing them. This is a far cry from the disciplined approach to gathering evidence that you learned in university. The question for you is, can you create a change to bring more rigour into your own HR department? Can you drive a quiet transformation you'd be proud of?

  • HR Business Partner model : past and future perspectives : international
           waters - HR strategy
    • Authors: Dave Ulrich; Wayne Brockbank
      Abstract: The business partner model has existed for many decades when effective staff support functions, including HR, have contributed to business results. Formalising how HR professionals may create more value as "business partners" has been of increased interest in the last 15 to 20 years. Without a doubt, HR issues have become more relevant to competitive advantage. When competitors can match financial, strategic, and operational initiatives, organisation capabilities become the differentiator that creates sustainable value for customers. As business partners, HR professionals help their organisations define and deliver organisation capabilities that add value to employees and line managers inside the organisation and to customers, investors, and communities outside the organisation. In this essay we want to reflect on what we have learned in the past decades about the relevance of the business partner model and on the challenges that lie ahead.

  • Secret SMS source for HR : international waters - communication
    • Authors: Sophorne Chhay
      Abstract: More than 75 percent of all smartphones worldwide are already SMS enabled, and 55 percent of smartphone users say that the first thing they do when they wake up is reach for their phones. Put those two statistics together and you'll realise one very important thing: if you want to master the complex art of HR, SMS may very well be your super secret sauce.

  • Get the best people through the oil and gas door : feature - strategy
    • Authors: Lindsay Sher
      Abstract: The oil and gas industry faces many challenges. Historically, it has often been difficult to get the best people and to ensure a recruitment strategy that promotes continuous succession of human resources. In recent times, however, the drop in oil price and subsequent job losses have meant that there are more professionals available on the open market. What strategies can companies employ to make sure they get the right people, ride out market turbulence and ensure they protect their interests for the future? The current availability of people in the oil and gas sector makes the recruitment sector a highly competitive marketplace. Some may even argue that it makes recruitment consultants somewhat redundant themselves, if you only consider their role in recruitment attraction rather than their expertise in talent management. There are a number of important factors that can be pivotal to getting the right people to fill business-critical positions, that don't just rely on attracting active candidates. The right approach(es) very much depends on the short- and long-term talent goals that the employer is looking for and the impact of the geographical location on the attractiveness of the role and availability of local talent.

  • Business leaders, don't succumb to human trafficking : feature -
           leadership
    • Authors: Leon Steyn
      Abstract: The very term "human trafficking" sends shivers down the spine of the most hardened and cynical person and most, if not all, people in leadership positions distance themselves, instinctively, from any association with this most terrible form of trade. Whilst the heading may not sit well with some, it could just be that toxic workplaces, whether created, tolerated or supported by leaders with a myriad of perverse excuses, actually appear to be very close to the abhorrent trade in human lives. This is confirmed by the many sad stories of good, commercially-sound and diligent employees who refuse to bow down to abuse, exploitation and other deviant workplace practices and who are then forced to leave and start afresh. This discussion by a minimum of ten times over fifteen years - in environments characterised by big forces and rapid shifts that leaders could not predict or control. The research team then contrasted the "10X" (pronounced "ten-exer's") to a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to achieve greatness in similarly extreme environments.

  • Remuneration revolution begins : hot button - remuneration
    • Authors: Mark Bussin; Daniela Christos
      Abstract: You've seen the headlines and most likely borne the brunt of them! Time and time again, greedy executives prove to be the culprits behind exploited labour, downtrodden masses and the colossal upset of almost an entire population. Executive pay has been labelled as "enormous, immoral and outrageous" and it seems that the trodden-on majority are demanding justice at long last. Things are changing in fixed pay, short-term incentives, long-term incentives and performance management. The remuneration revolution has begun.

  • Complexities of dual/multiple citizenship : legal - border crossing
    • Authors: Julian Pokroy
      Abstract: Previous articles about dual nationality for South African citizens and the complexities that surround this have appeared in HR Future. Prior to giving the actual update onthe situation, it is important to note that the South African Constitution enshrines the right to citizenship. Similarly, the South African Citizenship Act number 88 of 1995 also permits a South African citizen to acquire the citizenship of another country. In defined time spaces, that is, pre 1949, post1949 but prior to 1988 and post 1988, the Rules have remained essentially the same. To sum it up, there has been no prohibition against a South African citizen obtaining a citizenship of another country provided that the necessary steps are taken by the South African citizen to preserve their South African citizenship status. The main focus of this article is in respect of the post 1988 proclamation of the SouthAfrican Citizenship Act 88 of 1978 "the Act" as this iswhere most of the enquiries are received in terms oftime frame.

  • Do your employees live to work or work to live? : work/life balance
    • Authors: Vanessa Gibb
      Abstract: Is it just me or are most people struggling to balance work and private time? Is everybody really "too busy"? Are there really "not enough hours in the day"? Or is it simply a question of prioritising? Work-life balance is an EU policy priority. In France, the state provides in-home childcare forworking mothers and even housekeeping for new parents! While the Nordic countries famously offer even more support for dual-earner families. Yet with the realities of our economy, how do we deal with this conflict? Research into this topic dates back to the 1970s and it was not only executives who were battling with this feeling of overwork. Early research talks about the struggle of working shifts and its impact on family life. The research moves into the eighties where economies again started to boom and corporateAmerica's high-level execs were burning out. Then came 'yuppie flu' and more burn-out; divorce rates soared - many citing work-life imbalance as the reason.

  • There's more to life than work : more to life - wellness
    • Authors: Alan Hosking
      Abstract: As the Boomers have moved firmly into the 50 to 70 year age group, even they're starting to think differently about the waythey work. For the past 50 years, they have had a "live to work" mentality which saw them achieve much, develop much and earn much. But they also worked much. Remember the saying, "If you want something done properly, do it yourself"? That's a Boomer saying that summed up their attitude to work. Because their parents turfed them out the home assoon as they completed their schooling, they grew up to be capable, competent and committed. They learnt to rely on themselves and, if they couldn't do something themselves, would find someone who could help them, usually not their parents. For a number of reasons, this generation did notlook to their parents, rely on their parents or hang outwith their parents (that was just not cool) once theyreached adulthood.

  • We need more companies like these : editorial
    • Authors: Alan Hosking
      Abstract: With employed people spending a significant amount of their waking hours at work, one would think that it's a no-brainer for employers to make a point of providing a workplace that is conducive to employee well-being and happiness. Those employers who do take the time and the trouble to ensure that their employees have a pleasant workplace reap the benefits of their thinking and actions. It's however important to have an independent process that can objectively measure the things an employer is doing to take care of their employees. This certification process is undertaken by Top Employers Institute.

      Abstract: As the challenging economic climate continues to pose a barrier to organisational success, business leaders are under greater pressure to respond with dynamic strategies that will help them survive the downturn, and emerge stronger as conditions improve. However, the success rate of planned strategic changes - organisational restructuring and changes in leadership - that are necessary for enabling companies to thrive, is pretty poor. Our research shows that two-thirds of these changes fail to achieve their business goals and end up losing companies revenue, productivity and competitiveness.

  • Ensure a harmonious work environment : international waters - talent
    • Authors: Murad Salman Mirza
      Abstract: Organisations are complex entities and each is governed by a unique set of dynamic circumstances that include both the controllable and uncontrollable factors. One of the key controllable aspects is employee well-being, which is a significant aspect of the overall equation for corporate success. Any undesirable shift in their behaviours at the workplace can be a sign of simmering misgivings that can manifest at unpredictable times and have the potential to seriously damage the employer brand, in addition to critically disrupting the workplace harmony. Therefore, it is imperative that organisations manage any 'employee rage' situations effectively and efficiently as an important part of operationalising the talent management strategies.

  • Credibility building skills for HR : international waters - HR secrets
    • Authors: David Creelman
      Abstract: HR pros often find their advice is seen as external consultants. This may seem unfair or irrational, but it's a common human trait that we need to face. External consultants walk in with the credibility of being part of a prestigious firm; in-house employees don't have this advantage, so they need to work extra hard to build their reputation.

  • Psychometrics still count when recruiting : assessment
    • Authors: Ina Van der Merwe
      Abstract: More and more South African businesses and government institutions are reaping the longstanding financial, procurement and other benefits associated with conducting background screening checks to prevent employing candidates with false credentials. However, the need to assess whether candidates are the right fit for the job -from a procurement, recruitment, talent acquisition, succession planning or HR point of view - is becoming all the more prevalent. Unlike aspects such as education, skills,experience, appearance and punctuality, the behavioural traits, personality and competence of a candidate can be much more difficult to ascertain during an interview. An interview process can be fairly subjective and although employers will normally assess skills and experience fairly accurately, much is still left to first impressions and internal instinct regarding aligned values.
