Climbing the ladder...sideways

12 November 2014

Promotion used to mean climbing the ladder of an organisational hierarchy, when the ladders had many more rungs than they do now. Today, organisational structures are flatter; change seems to happen much faster, with new jobs and industries regularly popping up. So promotion can mean a whole range of things to different people.

"Promotion is really in the eye of the beholder," says Rebecca Clarke, president of the Auckland Branch Committee of the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand.

"Moving into another industry can be as effective taking the opportunity to develop new skills or prove themselves to a new group of people. And there are so many opportunities to collaborate with people virtually and be part of different project teams."

7 November 2014

Wellbeing, the ageing workforce and flexibility are the diversity issues most commonly perceived as important to organisations, according to a new report on diversity in New Zealand workplaces.

The New Zealand Diversity Survey, based on data collected from business owners and employers between November 2013 and August 2014, found other issues of concern are bias, ethnicity, gender, bullying and harassment, and employment transition for younger staff. 

Leading HR: The practices driving new business impact

4 November 2014

Strategic workforce planning has become a critical competitive differentiator, and that places a heavy responsibility on HR, according to a new report from PwC.

Just 45 percent of HR leaders globally are very confident that they will have access to the right talent to execute on the business strategy.

The report - Leading HR: The practices driving new business impact - says there is strong evidence of widespread disillusionment in HR from business leaders. Even HR leaders themselves feel uncertain that their function will find the skills that businesses need.
