Talent Management Flexibility Required amid Work-From-Home: Experts
T

Firms must come to terms while the scenario is different, at least until December. They must also rethink the benefits, talent management of their employees amid work from home.

Talent Management: There are increasing requirements for work from home (WFH) in the current situation. HR experts believe that talent management should be more flexible across industries and internally to accommodate the new normal. The organizations will have to treat their employees with greater sovereignty due to the disconnected work environment, says the Sangeet Gupta, Nasscom’s Senior Vice President, and Chief Strategy Officer.

The main concern amid the pandemic and work from home is dealing with several roles like supervisors and managers becoming irrelevant due to the nature of isolated action. Moreover, the organizations are also facing financial constraints along with flexible work hours at hand. The result is more firms are considering freelancers for their non-permanent skill requirements (1). 

Now a new ecosystem is developing where instead of taking extreme measures like rightsizing, employers are focusing on talent management to utilize it both internally and across industries.

 

Talent Management and Sharing Soon to be a Common Practice

Gupta further stated that many sectors are tided over major furlough events during the lockdown. It is possible because some companies assist their employees in finding opportunities and sharing talent. 

Many firms are also coming to terms with the work-from-home scenario at least until December 2020. They will also need to rethink the benefits of their employees, such as compensation and leave policies. 

Kris Shankar, HR Group Head at Infosys and President of National HRD Network India, stated that the legal liabilities are currently in transition. The focus is mainly to ensure talent management and stopping work-related burnout.

Employees also had a tough time maintaining boundaries between work and life due to the pandemic. The flexible working hours were also not feasible in many cities pre-COVID. However, we can now make adequate provisions for a workforce that accommodates all talent availability during business hours. 

Many firms are also defining WFH hours, emailing hours, and calling hours, so the employees get the required mental and emotional space. It is a part of a broader switch to ensure that employees are well and can consider their numerous domestic commitments.
