Tuesday was an exciting and much-anticipated day for the crew here at SilkRoad. We partnered with our friends at HR.com to share the findings of our recent “What Keeps HR Up at Night” survey, and the results did not disappoint!
As HR professionals we all have a million different things on our minds as the year comes to an end. Are we keeping up with the latest and greatest trends in the space? Will we have the resources we need to do our jobs as efficiently as possible? And perhaps most importantly, what are some ways to simplify our processes and make life easier?
We asked… You answered!
Based on this year’s “What Keeps HR Up at Night?” survey, HR professional’s top three concerns are:
1. engaging and retaining employees
2. developing leaders and managing skills gaps
3. recruiting the best talent available
With the battle for employee bandwidth and war for talent raging as strongly as ever, companies must prove to current and potential employees that they’re invested in their success and growth. Accomplishing high levels of success in these areas is no easy task, but we’ve got to start somewhere! Take some time to assess your current practices. How are they contributing to employee engagement, growth, and retention? Collaborate with other members of your team and hiring managers to see where processes can be simplified and refined. Reach out to employees for their feedback and BE SURE TO USE IT! Nothing says “we don’t really care about our employees” more than asking for input and feedback, then never actually using it in practice.

What are your concerns for 2014? What key areas of your HR processes need improvement? Share your thoughts and feedback on the survey results in the comments section below.
