In 2015, and I don’t think 2017 is much different, a HCI Survey examined the top five priorities for HR groups, the results were as follows:
1. Employee Engagement
2. Succession Planning
3. Managers as a coach, Coaching Culture
4. Performance Management
5. Workforce Planning
There is really no question that engagement will remain a #1 concern. Recent studies have indicated that 87% of companies consider “culture and engagement” top priorities. This focus is very unlikely to change, given that most everyone recognizes that engaged, committed employees are the primary core of today’s workplace success.
