Companies are undergoing profound transformations after the pandemic. There is a growing need for agility and flexibility to adapt to increasingly uncertain and complex environments, and it is time to rethink strategies.
Adecco Learning & Consulting has wanted to know the situation that companies are experiencing at a national level through a study and on five axes: business strategy, organizational model, financial strength, HR policies and leadership.
“The new generations have a different look towards the company. When facing a job interview, young people, in addition to being evaluated, also evaluate the company and are increasingly sensitive to aspects such as the value proposition in terms of professional career, forms of work and the conciliation proposal ”, explains David López, director of Adecco Learning & Consulting.
Companies and telecommuting
The survey shows a greater analysis by companies of how the current situation of uncertainty and the continuous and very rapid changes in the market impact their business. In the current context of the year 2022, the results show that 27% of companies do not have any teleworking days and 47% apply teleworking policies in some of the positions.
Therefore, has teleworking been implemented in organizations? Is the future hybrid?
According to Antonio Viu Pascual, Manager of Adecco Learning & Consulting: “The organization of new forms of work, new dynamics, new demands from employees and clients, new styles of leadership converge today with an era – the post-COVID era. – in which, in addition, collaboration, co-innovation, creativity and, of course, productivity and efficiency, are postulated as strategic priorities when it comes to advancing competitively”.
One of the highlights of the study is everything related to the digitization process, which in many cases has consisted mainly of promoting the use of digital tools.
In this sense, there has been a greater boost in relation to collaboration tools in companies with less than 100 employees, of which 25% belong to the service sector, and in companies with more than 500 employees, the industrial sector stands out with 19.5%.
27% of Spanish companies do not have any teleworking day
A fundamental point is how companies are able to attract talent at a time when it is scarce. Organizations must be attractive for the profiles they are looking for and the organization of work is a determining factor in whether or not to attract that talent.
In relation to this, it should be noted that 34% of the companies surveyed, belonging to the energy, ICT, Pharma, chemical and food sectors, plan to increase their workforce in the short term.
Attract and retain talent
Regarding the selection and attraction of talent, 39% of the companies surveyed foresee a growth in their workforce during 2022. The data produced by the study also show a growing trend in the preference of organizations to attract and retain multi-skilled talent .
However, one piece of information that draws attention is that related to the development and training plan, where the majority of the companies surveyed state that they maintain the same areas in their plans, including as a novelty the development in the use of digital tools and linked to the fact.
If we look at internal communication, a generalized and notable increase in communications within organizations stands out, which also has an impact on an apparently lower perception of productivity. Thus, 88% of the companies surveyed say they have increased the number of internal meetings, perceiving them as less profitable.
All the changes that are taking place in organizations have a direct impact on the skills and competencies that are demanded of leaders. What is currently expected at the competence level of leaders?
In this axis, the analysis has been complemented with the data resulting from a small study carried out on more than 300 people hired during their onboarding process. The professional experience of the profiles is spread out and ranges from no experience to more than 20 years in the profession.
Thus, 1 in 3 people surveyed expect good communication with their manager, and 1 in 4 look for leaders who have a clear vision and help them go in the right direction.
