2020 and the trends in the area of workforce management


Finally, we are in 2020 and this year brings many new trends in human capital management and workforce management. Which new developments should companies take into account and integrate into their everyday lives?

More flexibility

Flexible working hours will be the focus of employees in 2020. Employers want to improve the work-life balance of their employees by giving them freedom when and where they work. In particular younger generations, such as millennials and the “generation Z”, who are entering the world of work, are striving for a better work-life balance. Entrepreneurs must take note of this and consider the preferences of their employees and incorporate them into their rosters. This results in a higher level of employee commitment and up to 65% reduction in unplanned absences.

Furthermore, this leads to more creativity and employee motivation at workplace. Employees that are highly motivated and satisfied perform better and are more likely to stay in the company.

Artificial intelligence in workforce management

In recent years, the integration of artificial intelligence has become more and more common in workforce management. This reduces the time required for recruitment and planning processes. Accurate and precise planning also allows employers to significantly reduce labor costs and simplify the creation of rosters.
