What if you empowered your employees to dictate HR best practices based on how they work best? By using emerging technologies such as AI, HR departments can quickly learn the optimal ways in which their people work, eliminating unnecessary systems and processes. In doing so, organisations can gain a deeper understanding of their people and adopt an urban planning approach to setting up standardized processes that make work easier and more effective.
People related data needs to be treated with the utmost care and diligence. Rather than seeing recent legislation and rising awareness that as an impediment to great sourcing, HR should rethink their approach and not only do the right thing in the right way but also use the opportunities offered by new technologies to recruit.
An ethical approach to data starts with employees. If people don’t manage information responsibly, how can we hope to track it, much less protect it? Education is the key to driving awareness, which is why HR must take the helm in driving this behavioural change across the business.
When we talk about innovation, most of us probably think of plucky tech start-ups. Little wonder, as ‘innovation’ is one of Silicon Valley’s favourite words, and a key factor in most tech companies’ growth. So our mental images of innovation are usually of developers, programmers, and technical teams.
Companies are certainly thinking about people when measuring business success. We found the top KPI for innovation-driven growth – across all departments – is customer experience and satisfaction. And organisations recognise the contribution of their own people, as employee productivity is in joint second place.
Need departments to collaborate with one another? Lack of collaboration can slow everything down, from day-to-day work to major projects. But what if employees were digitally enabled, able to network and collaborate with people outside of their department?
Prior planning and preparation prevents poor performance – a phrase that could be soon be out of date. With the advent of new technologies, and in particular Artificial Intelligence, businesses will soon be able to predict the outcome of different scenarios, before they even come to fruition.
