THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
HR leaders are realising the need to invest in emerging technologies in their efforts to craft an impactful people strategy.
FREMONT, CA: Technology is the crowned change-maker for practically all industries undergoing significant business transformations. The HR department has been late to the celebration. It did not experience the drastic changes other departments like marketing or finance did. Due to the two-year break, HR technology has gradually risen in importance for many organisations. The entire function is changing to become more effective and efficient to technology solutions related to software, the cloud, digital platforms, AI, and machine learning.
HR directors realise the importance of investing in emerging technology to create an effective people strategy. According to recent estimates, the market for HR software will expand and reach USD 10 billion by the end of 2022, with a CAGR of 10.4 per cent for the industry as a whole. The modern HR environment has changed to consider the numerous technological aspects and incorporate them with conventional HR procedures.
Organisations need to concentrate more on the results and identify top performers using various key Performance Indicators( KPIs). The outdated practice of conducting annual or biannual performance reviews will likely harm worker productivity and motivation. The entire system might be reviewed by HR technology, making it more real-time and integrated. With a tech-powered system, several requests and preferences may be easily incorporated.
Increased Use of AI and Machine Learning
The rising usage of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is one of the most significant trends in HR technology. Employers use these technologies for various purposes, such as hiring, performance management, and staff retention. Several businesses are now adopting chatbots to respond to frequently asked inquiries from candidates during the hiring process. Additionally, AI is being used to screen social media accounts and resumes to find the best prospects. Predictive models that can aid businesses in making wiser decisions regarding things like hiring, promotions, and compensation are also being developed using machine learning.
Agile Team Building
Interaction and collaboration across cross-functional teams become more effective and simplified with a single HR engagement software. This results in what is known as an agile team, where individuals from many departments collaborate fast and effectively to accomplish a common objective. Agile team development has various advantages, including boosted creativity, greater judgement, and enhanced communication. Agile teams can also better handle unforeseen difficulties and adjust to change.
The use of data is quickly moving from prediction to description. The large amounts of data that are already available on how employees interact, their hobbies, and how they spend their workdays are anticipated to change, even though fundamental HR data cannot be expected to alter substantially. As a result, HR can forecast behaviour precisely and test new programs digitally. Algorithms will play a bigger role in HR choices as HR systems become more customised.
