The HR leaders who will find success in the post-pandemic world are those who identify the future requirements of the workforce.
The demands for personalized career plans plus work/life flexibility are already made by today’s top talent; these expectations will be increasingly felt across every tier of the organization into the future. Will you establish your leadership and relevancy in the market or will you allow your HR practices to remain antiquated?
Job Share Connect is the partner you need to ensure your HR leadership success.
Increase retention by offering better growth & development opportunities
People want meaningful careers where they can grow and learn new things. And they will leave their companies to find ways to develop.
Job sharing provides seamless cross-training to help high potential employees gain leadership opportunities, high performers have growth opportunities, gives up-skillers new challenges, and provides career changers with new learning opportunities. While all of these groups may have been a flight risk before, you now have the tools to keep the best talent in-house, while also increasing their happiness and loyalty.
Reduce costs by up-skilling
Your employees will gain new skills necessary to get the job done, in the way that is most effective for them. Job sharing expedites the learning process with hands on development.
90% of how adults learn is by communicating with each other, by sharing knowledge or experience, and by doing the actual work to develop new skills needed to grow organizations.
Retain your history
by offering a brighter future.
When a valued employee leaves your company, they take all of their knowledge — about your company and how it runs — with them. Avoiding costly turnover is just good business.
Job sharing could be the answer. It provides an alternative to employees who feel like they must choose between their job and other obligations — like caring for a family member or going back to school. It also gives older employees an option to transition into retirement, while training their replacement.
Don’t hunt for a unicorn. Build one.
Your budget allows for only one new hire, but your day-to-day business is in need of several different skillsets. You need that one magical employee. Or do you? With a job sharing program, you could get a broader range of skills and deeper knowledge from a pair of employees at the cost of a single salary — solving both your business challenges and your overhead limitations.
