The COVID-19 pandemic has forced HR professionals into some of the most challenging times on record. Whether its adapting to new workforce demands, managing dispersed teams or maintaining positive employee experiences in a time of volatility, HR teams have taken center stage.
But the battle is not over yet. As the road to recovery continues, organizations are now having to figure out how to safely and efficiently bring their employees back into the workplace. And it’s up to HR teams to help make that happen. We at Oracle are here to help.
A few months ago, we announced free access to our Oracle Workforce Health & Safety tool (part of Oracle Cloud HCM) for our HR customers to help keep their employees safe, and we’ve already seen it deliver tremendous value with many customers taking action. But we don’t want to stop there.
To provide additional help for the HR community, we are introducing the Oracle Employee Care Package for the New Workplace: a bundle of HCM tools and technology that will help HR teams make work safer, supportive, smarter, and more human as we re-enter the workplace. Within the Employee Care Package, we address three of the key areas for HR teams as they navigate the return to the work: safety, support, and skills.
As offices begin to reopen, one of the top priorities for HR teams will without a doubt be ensuring the health and safety of their workforce. Which is why we’re including our Oracle Onboarding and Oracle Workforce Health & Safety tools, both part of Oracle Cloud HCM, in the Employee Care Package.
HR teams will also need to be ready and equipped to deliver a supportive, and positive experience for their teams. Employees will likely be confused, curious, or even a little nervous when returning back to the workplace, and it’s up to HR teams to be their support and deliver confidence. Our Oracle Cloud HCM including Oracle HR Help Desk, Oracle Digital Assistant, and Oracle Work Life tools can help.
As we enter into this “new normal,” we will see a heightened importance around employee learning and reskilling as new skills gaps emerge and more roles are ready to be filled.
Now more than ever, HR teams are in the spotlight and driving their organizations to define what’s next. With the right tools in place, HR teams can help their workforce readjust to this changing world. And we’re here to help every step of the way.
