Cultivate Clear and Consistent Feedback

Employ new technologies to update antiquated performance management processes, and consider providing updated training for managers to ensure they're providing constant and direct feedback. According to a recent TriNet study, poorly administered performance reviews drive one in four working millennials to search for a new job, and 69 percent of millennials see their company's review process as flawed. Fostering an environment where ongoing feedback is possible also helps managers and employees proactively address issues versus reacting to them.

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Outdated practices may mean missing out on top talent who look for innovative and creative work environments.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.
