Technology is arguably one of the biggest and ever-expanding topics in HR right now – across HR there is the demand to be incredibly agile as well as having unfailing accuracy. Areas such wellbeing, employee engagement, leadership, change management, recruitment and people development are all being measured and assessed more than ever, therefore we need to get up to date with the software that will help us stay at the very forefront of people management.
According to Deloitte in their recent 2018 HR Technology Disruptions findings the number one disruption this year will be technology based around workforce productivity and employee engagement – this could be a platform that can engineer engagement and collaboration in a way that emails cannot engage. Employee engagement is such a wide subject – but can be assessed and moderated efficiently, whether it’s a feedback survey, collaborative working, onboarding ideas or rewarding your employees it’s always beneficial to have an effective way to measure progress and track employee success.
Health and wellbeing
Another huge area where technology is really coming into the fold is health and well-being. According to the Office for National Statistics, there are 15.2 million sick days taken a year due to anxiety, stress or depression. This coupled with the CIPD’s findings that only 2 out of 5 employees are working to their full potential due to reasons listed above, it’s becoming clear that this is an issue that business leaders can no longer not act upon.
The search for talent has never been greater, with passive candidates and active candidates of all ages using different platforms to find their next role the competition has severely stepped up. To reach the people, who will strengthen the organisation you need to use tools that are convenient and engaging. Using multimedia platforms will help engage a more extensive array of candidates and will hopefully give them a sense of the company culture – heightening the engagement from the first encounter. According to 2018 HR Technology Disruptions more companies are investing in video as it’s becoming a fast growing area of talent acquisition.
