In partnership with SAHRA, the Sacramento Business Review surveyed the local HR community to determine trends, and to forecast the future of human capital in Sacramento. Below are the key findings:
❱❱ The current focus for human capital management in the region is on employee development, i.e., training for necessary work skills and development for future changes.
❱❱ Local organizations predict that their most important initiative during the first half of 2017 will be recruiting new talent, although they expect low levels of turnover – an apparent contradiction.
❱❱ More than three-quarters of employees view their pay and benefits positively, consistent with the data in our SBR/SAFE Credit Union Consumer Sentiment Survey.
❱❱ Seventy-five percent of organizations anticipate championing new or significantly revised human capital initiatives for 2017, including employee recognition in non-financial forms.
❱❱ HR departments expect to focus on improving employee engagement and satisfaction.
