Let’s Decode The Future of Human Resources

The enormous worldwide magnitude of the coronavirus pandemic has led to disruption becoming the new norm in several aspects of life. It is no news that COVID-19 has caused a notable transformation in the way companies carried out operations, particularly human resources. One good thing that happened after the outbreak of this pandemic is businesses expediting their use of HR tech and finding new ways to maximize its value.

This, in turn, has increased the need for HR digitalization that was never seen before this health crisis. As a result, more and more businesses in India are now relying on automated software for HR management.

Women in Engineering: A Level Playing Field?

According to the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), women only make up 12.37% of all engineers in the UK. Considering that a higher number of girls than boys achieve a grade A*-C in all STEM A-Levels except chemistry, there is a clear disjunction when these young girls begin their careers. The engineering industry is often considered stereotypically masculine, and this outdated image may be off-putting to many women who would otherwise thrive in an engineering role. Various businesses and non-profit initiatives are striving to create a level playing field for women in engineering. However, the current gender gap still begs the questions: what is stopping more women pursuing a career in engineering? Is this trend changing? And, importantly, are we doing enough to encourage women down this crucial and rewarding career path?

How Empowering Young Women Can Solve the STEM Shortage

In 2021, women accounted for only 10 per cent of the workforce. Therefore, in order to solve the shortage, professional and governmental bodies can work towards equalising the gender gap within STEM.

Here, we will explore how empowering young women from an early age and developing opportunities within the workplace can inspire the next generation of STEM workers.

Improving access for girls within the education system

To solve the shortage of workers within STEM, educational bodies can encourage girls to take part in these subjects as children. Throughout history, STEM subjects have been considered stereotypically masculine, and this has amounted to girls disassociating themselves from these subjects.
