Futurism for the workplace: Technology in the business of HR

Stage setting presentations to focus the conclave's direction: Connecting technology with the present, and future, strategic functional and operational aspects of the HR Professionals.

The Changing Business Dynamics & HR Tech – What the Top Management will see Perspectives and Views:

If you are not restructuring and re-visioning, you will fall behind. New software is being designed so that they are user friendly. Are you delivering value to the capability of the employee and management – in their terms? Not in that of HR. Are you thinking about content, knowledge, HR intranets, and analytics at the time of a transaction? Are you ready for the consumerization of the application? Are you designing for the Organisation to welcome the future? The aim is to recommend tech solutions that are compatible with the existing company technology & current investment capacity of the organization to initiate this futuristic approach to improvise the present structure through technology. HR Technology focuses on the business process and organizational success enabled by technology, not the bits and bytes of it. HR Technology covers all the latest trends – Software as a Service (SaaS), The Cloud, social, mobile, analytics, video, gamification, Big Data – as well as the more traditional technologies and processes that still compete for your attention. Whatever is changing the way work and HR gets done, is what is featured.

How can technology strengthen its foothold in the HR space? Where do the challenges lie and how can these be overcome? The sessions are facilitated by expert moderators, attended by 'C' level executives & Top HR professionals as delegates, to answer these brain storming questions that make rounds in every CHROs mind.

The Future of "World at Work" – HR Technology advances will take away the human element.

HR technology continues to be a major driver of business and workforce transformation, and you'll find out the how and why from HR Leaders. The advent of technologies like applicant tracking systems, the recruiting world has certainly become more efficient, but the argument could also be made that it has become colder and more mechanized. There is no code that can replace the "gut feeling" we get from interacting with other people. It is a warning about humans eventually being replaced by robot overlords, it should be clarified that the technology mentioned above has helped both recruiters and employers innumerably. The idea that humans can vouch for each other is so simple, yet so important when searching for employees.

Will a CHRO and a CTO have a role reversal? Computers are good at boiling humans down to numbers that can assist us in making decisions, but in the recruiting world, the human element has crucial implications that cannot be overstated.

Every interaction with employees is an opportunity to build or break trust, including how they experience technology in the workplace. Technology is increasingly used to help manage HR-related functions such as hiring, compensation, employee development, and more-all of which are, traditionally, crucial employee touch-points for fostering a trust-based relationship. As much as we rely upon technology to make organizations as efficient and effective as possible, it can never replace human interaction and authentic relationships, which are the cornerstones of a great workplace. Especially as it relates to Human Resources, technology should be seen as a tool that supplements, enhances, and informs—not replaces—real person-to-person contact.

Keeping the Human Element Intact

HR Technology enables organizations and the individuals within themselves to achieve in proportion to their fullest potential. However, it is important to bolster these capabilities with a strong human presence. As you reflect upon your own HR Technology solutions, consider…

  • Have you lost any opportunities for human interaction that previously existed in this area?
  • If so, is there a way to integrate a new employee touch point into this realm?
  • With the added efficiency, how can you focus renewed attention to the employee relationship?

Thinking these questions through will help ensure you achieve the ultimate goal of fostering a trust-based relationship with employees, even with the most tech-savvy solutions.

Tech HR Predictions - The Future

In future the world of Talent, Leadership and HR will undergo a dramatic change. The global economic growth will create a new level of competition for people. People will change jobs. HR organizations will shift their focus from cost reduction to retention and engagement. Technology will continue to make the world a smaller place, forcing companies to improve their employment brand in every possible way. Data will become a new currency. Leadership will continue to be in short supply and HR organizations will have to innovate to stay ahead. Can Technology motivate or impact the HR fraternity in future? Can technology surpass the expectations of HR professionals and improve the employee engagement?
