Among a digital revolution, where integrated global IT systems and complex strategic business plans go hand in hand, it’s important for the HR industry not to fall behind. If the whole industry decided not to update and harmonise their systems it would impact the success of the HR industry and the businesses the HR departments work for.
HR strategies would not be able to align, support or revolutionise a business-wide strategy. Nor would they be able to keep up with the demand of employee expectation for accessible learning and development. A company may have to slow down their recruitment schedule as tired disconnected systems are no match for the fast speeds of interconnecting, cloud-based information platforms.
With implications affecting worklife balance, a company’s culture and even finances, it’s not a question of whether you should invest in a digital HR transformation, it’s a question of when.
It’s important to notice that a digital development in HR will influence an entire business. From how employees can access, amend and store their data, to how holiday requests are processed; the entire business will be affected. This is why it’s so important to get it right.
