tech-spectations? Entering the new future of work...
Expectations on technology in the workplace are higher than ever before.
Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, employees expected their workplace technology to operate as smoothly and conveniently as the technology in their personal lives. Now that we’re making sense of what the ‘next normal’ of work is going to mean for our organisations, our expectations are being raised even higher based on what we need technology to help us achieve.
For organisations to thrive in the ‘next normal’, it’s imperative that we’re able to provide the best possible service while also supporting the safety and security of our employees.
HR technology holds the key to achieving this balance between productivity, engagement and safety. A few examples...
Diversifying business plans
The old adage ‘think outside the box’ has never been more apt. Businesses have been forced to quickly find ways to diversify in order to keep going – and this will continue. Evolving (and remote) organisations need to be supported by strong communication strategies that include timely updates to the right people at the right time. To achieve this, you’ll need tools to enable you to communicate key messages and understand employee feeling.
Compliance with new Government safety guidelines and adapting workspaces to ensure social distancing are top of the ‘next normal’ agenda. This compliance is being actioned through around new socially distanced work practices, such as working from home strategies, flexible hours, staggered work patterns, and more.
Available anytime, anywhere and on any device, HR technology helps you to maximise productivity no matter where your people are working and remain compliant with the latest regulations, no matter how often things change.
If this year has taught us anything, it is to well and truly expect the unexpected. Organisations are being challenged to work more flexibly to respond to whatever happens next. As demands change and uncertainty lingers, how can HR ensure a productive workforce?
Alongside robust communication functionality, dashboards and reporting tools provide you with the up-to-date people data you need. In addition, easy to use analytical tools give you a deep insight into your workforce to support the decision-making process about the future direction of your business.
