Digitizing the HR Process

There’s something to be said about the trend of human resource departments modernizing their efforts and bringing certain aspects of their processes in order to gain greater efficiencies across the board. Companies who have gone digital have experienced increased usable data and analytics and improved the overall employee experience.

 

For example, “56% of companies… are redesigning their HR programs to leverage digital and mobile applications.”[1]

 

The digitization of HR departments allows for organizations to take the leap into digital tools allowing the business to deliver more accurate and meaningful solutions while also showcasing their stance as innovators in the industry.

 

Here are some steps you can take to help get your HR team moving toward the digital realm of operational effectiveness:

  • Use your networking and HR connections to understand mistakes that were made (to not emulate these at your own company) and what went well. Early adopters of digital HR will be eager to share their wins and losses—another great way to keep communication between your two organizations open.
  • Consider an agile approach for your team in order to encourage constant iteration in terms of a digital reconstruction of your existing processes, procedures, and communication practices.
  • Boost your current learning and development or continued professional education courses with the addition of a digital component. There is also an option of overhauling the current learning and development program and replacing it with a digital e-learning platform. This gives employees a personalized learning experience.

 

The digital components of a newly redesigned human resources team show the company’s forethought and focus placed on all employees, regardless of employment status (part-time vs. full-time), or rank. A renewed look at purpose-built HR products and solutions lends itself to helping businesses move faster, highlighting employee retention and performance, while “proactively addressing [teams] through coaching, recognition, or community building.”[2]
