What got the HR profession talking in 2014?


As the year draws to a close we look back at the top five most-read and commented-on HRM online articles by the HR profession in 2014.

The most-read HRM online article for 2014 listed the 10 least common employee benefits, suggesting that HR professionals are looking for alternative ways to engage and retain employees. Three out of the top five articles covered legal aspects of HR, being unfair dismissal, workplace conflict and managing bad behaviour, each of which highlighted the ongoing centrality of compliance for many HR professionals. Another one of the top five was organisational change, a topic that continually challenges HR professionals, and is an indication that the role involves searching for the culture that enables high performance and results.
