It’s expected that the shift in the Human Resource Management and Health Safety will continue into the 2020’s. With so many CEO’s, Presidents, and other major players in companies and corporations approaching retirement age, the focus on succession planning to ensure smooth transitions has taken great importance in the role of the HR professional.
In addition, health and safety legislation is always continuing to change and evolve. Keeping abreast of changes in health and safety legislation is a key component of Human Resource Management administration, but not the only part. Health and Safety legislation also requires that training records are adequately maintained, and that program administrators are familiar with what laws apply to them.
Not only can health and safety be a part of a company’s overall success strategy, but it can also be used as a tool for talent retention. Employee health, safety, and wellness management are important determinants of employee perceptions regarding fair treatment by the organization. In fact, a bountiful and comprehensive wellness program can be a powerful incentive for new talent to strive to work for your company, as well as a strong retention tool. No longer just something companies do to remain compliant and avoid tickets or fines, health and safety is impacting the role of Human Resources and company’s overall strategy in a major way Health, safety, and wellness programs can include anything from training and education opportunities. What is included in a health and wellness program is limited only by the imagination (and funding) of the organization.
It’s important to pay attention as trends indicate that in the future Human Resource Professionals will be more focused on health, safety, and wellness than ever before.
