Find out what Dallas employees should expect from the future of HR.

Stronger Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

DEI will be among HR’s top priorities:

  • Diversity means hiring qualified employees regardless of culture, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation, and other personal characteristics.
  • Equity involves providing the unique resources and support each employee needs to advance within the organization.
  • Inclusion involves providing relevant programs and support to help each employee feel like a welcome, valued, and respected member of the organization.

Most employees look for DEI when deciding where to work. They want to see themselves represented at all levels of the organization. Therefore, companies that prioritize DEI initiatives have greater access to top talent than companies that do not prioritize DEI.

More Purpose-Driven Work

Automation will continue to take over repetitive tasks to free up time for higher-level activities. Therefore, employees can provide more meaningful contributions to organizations. The results include:

  • Greater employee engagement
  • Higher performance
  • Increased productivity
  • Better job satisfaction
  • More opportunities for advancement
  • Stronger employee morale

Increased Upskilling

Upskilling provides opportunities for employee training and development. Increasing each employee’s skill set provides them with opportunities for advancement.

Employees who engage in continuous learning regularly expand their knowledge and abilities. As a result, these employees provide additional value for the company. Therefore, they can earn bonuses, pay increases, and promotions.

Examples of upskilling opportunities include:

  • Lunch and Learn sessions
  • Online courses
  • Microlearning
  • Certifications
  • Mentorship
  • Stretch assignments
  • Job shadowing

Enhanced Employee Experience

HR professionals will more effectively meet employee expectations to provide a better employee experience. These expectations include higher compensation, more attractive benefits, and increased work-life integration.

HR will place greater emphasis on showing employees are valued, respected members who make a difference in the organization. Becoming more employee-centric and people-focused includes offering additional programs and support for employee well-being. These resources are especially important for remote and hybrid employees who might struggle to maintain boundaries between their professional and personal lives.
