Holistic HR

A holistic approach means looking at the big picture, and HR has become more holistic in recent years towards the employees and the company. As per the new trends, HR is becoming more employee-centric, and slowly getting into management, this new approach will benefit both employees as well as the company.

Diversity And Equal Opportunities

HR must implement diversity during hiring to add a perfect blend of teamwork and progress. HR must take care that every employee gets equal opportunities in terms of promotions and perks, no matter if the employee is male, female, senior, junior, etc. It will result in less discrimination, which will increase enthusiasm and reliability among employees.

Feedback Tools

Keeping in mind the growing competition in business, an organisation must get timely feedback. HR should undertake this crucial task for the company's welfare, as it will help to determine the company's image. HR should make use of effective tools and survey forms for employee opinions and feedback, which will help the company to study where they lack. It will also help the management to learn about the concerns and problems faced by the employees. It is one of the most effective trends of 2020.

On Job Training

Every employee requires effective training and continuous mentoring at the initial phase in a company. The new trend of on-job training is emerging at a rapid pace with a lot of new trends accompanying it. Providing on-job training will help employees to learn more about the company and their role. On-job training ensures that an employee is well-prepared for working with the company. Organisations are investing in Virtual and augmented reality, gamification, geofencing, and other techniques to impart on the job training to their workforce.


Many organisations have been implementing changes to gamify their workplace by providing indoor games and activities for employee engagement, which will entertain employees from their hectic workloads. It encourages employee engagement and provides them with the necessary break during work hours.
