Break Barriers to Retain Talent

Move toward a teamwork-driven and relationship-oriented working environment by training managers on how to model and lead collaboratively. The traditional boss-subordinate relationship impedes most employees' development, and today's workforce appreciates a team-based approach over hierarchical structures. A collaborative workplace where employees are part of the decision-making process is more successful as that workplace has the opportunity to plan its future success based on the work on the front lines.

Modernizing all aspects of the workplace – from business processes to workplace culture – is inherent to meeting the expectations of the evolving workforce. Despite technology improving and streamlining processes, many companies are still struggling to change their business models to adapt to the new ideals of the modern workplace such as collaboration, transparent communication and mentorship.

Outdated practices may mean missing out on top talent who look for innovative and creative work environments. If a company is stuck on archaic processes, they risk facing costly consequences.

In this slideshow, Jacqueline Breslin, director of human capital services at TriNet, cloud-based provider of HR services, shares tips for modernizing the workplace to help organizations navigate emerging workplace trends and issues to stay competitive.
