The average employee, however, now faces a bigger problem: burnout.
Overloaded with myriad tools and targets, dealing with blurred work and home boundaries, and spending more than one third of their work hours on email alone, the last thing today’s workforce needs is one more digital platform to keep track of.
Instead, forward-thinking companies build a technology framework that puts people first and takes a more holistic view of the employee experience.
The people-first approach to digital transformation
Smart HR departments know that there is more to digitisation than technology for its own sake. To prevent employee burnout, HR needs a big picture view.
- How can we use technology to free our people up for deep and meaningful work?
- How can digital solutions be integrated into the workday rather than causing overload?
- How can we design a work experience that is more fun, more rewarding, and more interesting every day?
Rather than purchasing more and more stand-alone tools, organisations can use an employee experience-oriented point of view to design a digital HR roadmap that focuses on what the system can do for people, rather than the other way around.
The new digital HR roadmap
Many HR departments are changing their whole service delivery model in line with this new way of thinking, to ensure their employees receive support tailored to their individual needs.
From rethinking workflows, to integrating tools, to providing multidisciplinary support, smart digital HR roadmaps consider every angle with a view toward providing a seamless experience that aligns with the business vision.
