虽然冬天还没有完全覆盖全国,但相信很多企业都已经体会到了经济严寒的威力。根据人民大学发布的报告预测,2015年全年GDP实际增速为6.9%,GDP增速的“破7”,非金融性行业增速的“破6”,工业主营业务收入的“0增长”,GDP平减指数、企业利润和政府性收入的“负增长”, “衰退式顺差”的快速增长以及“衰退式泡沫”的此起彼伏,都标志着中国宏观经济于2015年步入深度下滑期和风险集中释放期。作为企业内部的HR,也面临着更加严峻的人才挑战,开支的缩减、关键人才的流失、裁员的压力等等无不挑战着人力资源工作的极限。如果认为只有销售、市场才能从根本解决公司困难,HR只要少花钱、处理好善后问题就行了,那么,这个公司的生命力真的很值得怀疑。事实上,我们发现,在人力资源上投入特别关注的企业往往更容易度过经济困难期。
