Growth is frequently viewed as the moving power behind small businesses. Outsourcing is the business practice of hiring a party outside a company to perform services and create goods that traditionally were performed in-house by the company's own employees and staff. Outsourcing is a practice usually undertaken by companies as a cost-cutting measure (Alexandra Twin)
Outsourcing business functions is sometimes called contracting out or business process outsourcing. For a company to effectively outsource responsibilities, it is imperative to zero in on the business organization as much the logistics. Outsourcing is tied overseeing relationship more than service-level agreements, and is an organization, not a buying project. Keeping up and getting a believed relationship is fundamental in outsourcing endeavors and is more mind boggling than setting up service levels and relationships.
Human use communication as a channel to interact with each other in day-to-day life. Effective communication is a necessary tool in achieving high quality of performance and maintaining strong working relationships within the organization. The trust among employees can build up if everyone is spending time into delivering clear communication. Effective communication helps worker profitability and ties employees together. It builds team and increases employee performance and at an equivalent time it reduces turnover rate within the organization. However, weak communication within the organization will cause loss of confidence and ineffective operation. Organizations that are lacking in their communication don't accomplish the very performance as those that convey well.

Today the face of Human Resource is a portal rather than a person making it a technology-based profession thus organizations are now practicing HR services through technology, web applications such as Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) and this has adversely affected recruitment.

Use Legal Avenues as a Last Resort
When all other channels for positive conflict resolution are exhausted, companies may resort to legal avenues like arbitration and litigation. These should be approached as a last resort since they are costly and time-consuming, not to mention psychologically draining on all parties involved.
Last week, we started talking about managing workplace conflict. We'll continue this week as well. We have looked at the impact of workplace conflicts and also considered the first strategy in handling them. We will continue with the strategies
Set Expectations for Supervisor Involvement
While there will be times when a higher-up needs to get involved in a dispute between staffers, the response should not be to automatically take ownership of that problem. Rather, the focus should be on empowering staffers to analyze the issue, come up with possible solutions, and take action to put those solutions into place.
Work, by nature, brings together diverse individuals, each with their own unique temperaments, beliefs and work styles. With that, inevitably, comes conflict. Workplace conflict is an inherent part of professional life and no organization is immune from it.

Not only has the global pandemic taken a toll on the economic conditions of countries and brought down organization around the world, it has also changed our way of living; our perception and thinking, work routines etc. Employees’ way of life have been affected and that calls for a change from the normal pre-covid-19 patterns of work to an adjustment to the new norm of working within current (covid-19) trends and beyond.
As the pandemic resets major work trends, personnel management or Human Resource leaders need to rethink workforce and employee planning, management, performance and experience strategies.
A senior leader in a meeting told me that feedback is a gift. How can you ever improve if you don’t know where you need to shore up your skills or work habits?
That’s some of the best advice I’ve ever gotten and it has changed the way I think about negative feedback.
Many people get defensive or sad when they’re criticized at work. In many cases, the workplace has no feedback culture in place and people are not trained to give or receive criticism in a constructive manner. Giving and receiving negative feedback constructively takes a LOT of practice!
Individuals with natural aptitude and skills are great asset to every organization and are worthwhile to engage. Talent engagement is the process of attracting the right people to your organization and getting them to fully engage and connect with your company’s values, goals, and principles.
It is essential that as organizations sail through these challenging times of COVID-19 and having to simultaneously keep pace with competition, they do not lose sight on employee / talent engagement as it is one the most important indicators in gauging work satisfaction and productivity.

The current global health event has changed the way we go about our daily routines and don’t believe anyone could have foreseen its impact both at home as well as the workplace. Leaders and managers are reacting to the unstable work environment as fast as possible with very little time to plan. Many are used to operating a certain way and this new normal has caused quite a bit of disruption. Are organizations open and ready to adapt for how we do business in this COVID – 19 era?
Teamwork has always been an essential capability for successful enterprises, but with today’s organizations undergoing disruption and digitization in an ‘innovate or die’ economy, it is now more important than ever that employees can collaborate effectively across geographical sites, between business functions and within increasingly fluid job hierarchies.
In a matter of a week, a virus well known as COVID-19 that loomed at the periphery of our consciousness rapidly pushed its way to the center of our daily lives. Businesses were thrust into a maelstrom of uncertainty, forcing them to reevaluate their current strategic plans. Almost immediately, a clear pattern emerged: locked down, retract and protect. Companies went to their economic downturn failsafe: cutting anything they deemed even remotely non-essential, from travel and discretionary spend to you guessed it training.
As the world of work continues to change rapidly, employers know that today’s best employees will be those who can adapt to change and face the never ending wave of challenges, not just be content with mastering technical requirements. In fact, a recent study predicts that by 2030, two in three jobs will require a greater focus on soft skills, not hard skills, as automation and globalization bring about a marked shift in the need for skills.
Managing a team of 20 was taking quite a toll on Nana. She wished there was a way she could make work a little more pleasant. Gazing at the sunset, she felt a sense of calm descending on her. Suddenly, her attention was captured by a flock of ibises flying in a V-formation. She was surprised to see the birds at the tail end and head were periodically rotated. She remembered her science lessons: birds fly in a V to save energy by drafting off each other. She laughed at the simplicity of it all. By sharing the responsibility of leading and picking up the slack, the birds had devised the perfect way to share the burden of flying amongst themselves. Nature held so many fascinations for her, but perhaps it was the lessons that it generously taught her that made it all the more important.
