The labor market, between crisis and reinvention

The traditional methods of motivating the employees seem to be unsuccessful in the current economic context, in which the labor market lacks specialists in almost all areas, and the temptation to move to other countries is very high. Fiscal facilities have occasionally created incentives in certain areas, but the fundamental issues are still far from being resolved, in a market that is hard to stay competitive.

Under these conditions, one of the great challenges of HR specialists has become the finding of new methods of retention and motivation of employees, adapted to the current specificity of the market. Against this backdrop, companies are changing their human resources strategies, investing in training professionals.
The challenges go further in the area of ​​training and even retraining the employees, in order to keep up with the technology or the digitization of the processes, but also in the search for flexible organizational models capable of adapting to the challenges and changing changes.
