HR Systems, technology and AI were on the agenda for many businesses long before Covid-19 struck. Needless to say, the experience of working in lockdown has further increased the pressure to move forward.
It’s not only a question of how to support and drive the business remotely, but one of realising potential costs savings.
Businesses are working through key questions around HR Technology:
- What is the impact of remote working on onboarding, training and development? How can we build a blended learning approach or integrate our dispersed tools into one streamlined learning hub?
- What will work post Covid-19 look like and how can cutting edge HR technology enable its success?
- How can we unleash cost saving potential with process alignment, self-service and automation?
- How can we offer the business data on key trends on employees’ needs, expectations and behaviours?
Whilst some businesses have clear answers and solutions to these questions, a large portion are only at the start of their HR technology journey. At the same time, there is a shortage of HR talent with both strong HR and technology expertise.
With businesses set only to continue on their HR technology agenda, or risk being left behind, this trend looks set to stay.
