It is almost “the most wonderful time of the year’, where carols are on repeat, and the air is filled with good cheer. All over the world, everyone has felt the need for a huge break at some point in this year. It has been an amazing year filled with pleasant and unpleasant surprises. If you are reading this editorial, though – that means one thing: you made it! Congratulations!

The HR Focus team is hopeful for a much better new year and a joyful and peaceful new Christmas season! We put together a few thoughts from professionals across the continent for your reading pleasure. We have insights and spotlights of over eight industrious organisations and several other multinational corporations that will offer amazing insights to business development and people management.

One thing the year 2021 has taught us is the value of enjoying the present season and being open minded to what the future will hold. A lot has changed since January 2021, and all the changes we have witnessed marked the end or beginning of a new season/era. With all these changes, a new way of thinking, living and working has come to stay. It is the right time to have conversations about what the current state of work is, and how ready we are for the new era in the world of work that we are coming into.

We have also sought the views of several key professionals on the topical issue of “The New Work Order” and put together informative infographics to satisfy your curious minds. Our digital platform, the HRFocusUniverse.Com is teeming with insightful content as well, and we would love to connect with you digitally! Subscribe to our newsletter and stay updated with the latest trends, events and happening of HR Focus.

Until next time, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
