The Future Of Work

Finding ways to help your existing workforce build the skills your small business needs to scale is nothing new in HR. 

However, this concept, also known as 'upskilling,' has gained much traction recently, and it might be one of the most critical HR trends small businesses will need to adopt in 2023 to remain competitive. So, why is it happening now? 

This renewed interest in leadership and development has much to do with the significant shift we've seen over the last few years to fully remote or hybrid work.  It's an entirely different type of management from what we've seen in the past.

Moreover, as we discussed in our previous episode, most managers don't have access to proper managerial training and sometimes lack interpersonal skills , which are an essential part of effective leadership. So, it will be crucial for managers to learn how to foster inclusion and belonging in the workplace as well.

They'll need to learn how to keep their remote teams feel connected and inspired - one of the most significant challenges of the future workplace.
