According to new research, HR technology was critical to business survival during the pandemic. The majority of HR and C-suite leaders say HR technology has helped their businesses run and thrive during the pandemic. But, how much does it help?
Of 500 HR and business professionals polled,
81 percent said they couldn't have operated successfully during the pandemic without HR technology.
The C-suite and HR leaders agree that HR technology has helped them be more agile and responsive to changing demands while strengthening their businesses.
With the widespread use of remote working, 82 percent of HR and executives believe they have to grow HR technology to manage and function efficiently.
The emphasis on HR technology should continue through the rest of 2021 and beyond. HR leaders remain at the forefront of digital transformation and innovation for effective work. In addition, HR leaders must keep up with the changing business demands.
Overcoming the HR challenges with this so-called technology
1. Make the hiring process less painful
You have no clue how much easier retention and onboarding are with HCM Software. The system provides a flexible field of information so you can capture more HR data information based on your business needs. Powered by a workflow engine, HARPA technology automates and reduces manual procedure in the submission of hiring data entry.
2. Promote your health benefits
Employees' mental and physical health is a major concern, especially while working remotely, as the symptoms are difficult to detect.
To fight this, ensure your company provides stress relief options such as counselling, exercise, and work/life balance policies.
Some employees may not know how to obtain remote health benefits, so it's critical to promote them through many channels. HARPA allows you to enroll in benefits with rules and validations that match your policy. With automation in validation and workflow approval, it speeds up the benefit claim process.
3. Track employees while keeping their privacy
People data helps businesses to assess productivity during quarantines, lockdowns, and employee absences. This has been shown to be vital for business survival. But, on the other hand, monitoring employee attendance becomes more difficult when you don't see them every day.
HARPA with its simple time and absence tracking calculates overtime compensation, leaves, attendance, and more. It also protects employee privacy since HR does not need to contact them on a daily basis and make them feel distressed. This HR software also encourages workers to be more disciplined, even if they work from home.
HR technology not only enabled broad remote work, but also improved engagement and productivity. These tools have enabled the HR teams to effectively manage business operations and respond to changing business demands during the pandemic. HR teams have shown their value through the pandemic, but they must continue to be flexible to go through the new methods of working.
