    Every year, HR will act as an independent agent to roll out the voice of the workforce to the employees. HR will collect the survey from each BU/department to understand the employee’s thoughts of the organization. It includes the organization’s strategy, vision, and employees satisfaction. Through this activity, HR is able to communicate the outcome with the VPs and reflect the actual understanding and needs of each BU/department. Also, because of this activity, if the BU/department manager score under average points, he/she might need to improve so that everyone can align with the organiztion’s strategy and employee satisfaction.

    Consistently practising this exercise will let the employee understand and be in line with the organization strategy.

    However, on the other hand, some years back, there was a new HR practice that rolled out from the headquarter, which was flexible work from home policy. This was to attract more people to join the organization. However, this practice was inconsistent due to different managers practice differently. Furthermore, headquarter did not put the work from home policy in a clear guideline. Hence, even there was a flexible working policy but was inconsistently applied in the organization.
