With companies transforming digitally, HR executives, structures, systems, and processes are also witnessing a need to change.
To stay relevant and add value in the age of automation, human resource functions must also transform.
Here are three reasons:
- Demographic change
The workforce is getting more diverse as there are now four generations in the same workforce. This means HR executives have to think about policies and systems that are flexible, support knowledge transfer, re-skill old workers, and educate new ones.
- Fast-changing business models:
With growing technology and demand, employees and teams must be able to collaborate easily. Managers must build and reshape teams quickly. Talent locked in functional silos will leave or be wasted.
- Transparent technology:
The personal devices of employees have become faster and more entertaining than the ones they use at work. Employees now expect systems to be seamless and easy to understand and use.
Enabling people to do their best work should be one of the principles that stands at the core of every human resources department. An HR team that has relevant insights, segments talent, syndicates and distributes content, monitors communication effectiveness, and makes improvements can help to shape a successful organization.
