Human resources strategy: challenges and prospects


On 22 February 2022, at the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, a workshop entitled Human Resources Strategy: challenges and perspectives was held. Participants included students, PhD students, teachers and employers. In the last 2 years, major transformations have taken place in the economic activity of companies in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, some of them irreversible and others beneficial.

Flexible working hours and remote working have been debated as a reaction to uncertainty in the economy. In this context, employee health has been a priority for company management. Companies have tried to ensure an organisational culture adapted to working in the virtual environment, based on certain principles and values.

Under these conditions, the recruitment, selection, induction and integration strategy and the occupational health and safety management strategy are modified. The workshop was held under the high patronage of the Academy of Romanian Scientists, Commission for Safety and Health at Work, with the partners Academia Ardeleană Foundation and ifm efector s.r.l.
