“The world of work is undergoing a seismic shift. Technology is changing the way we work, communicate, relate – and above all, the way we live. Digital transformation is not only affecting every industry, but also every department of the enterprise. Human Resources is no exception. But what do HR departments need to know about going digital, and how and why do they need to make digital a reality now? In an era when the talent has already gone digital, Digital HR is now a survival and transformative imperative for organisations.
‘33% of chief executives will have at least five years of experience with technology leadership by 2021.’
‘Close to 50% of all CIOs will prioritize digital over physical assets.’
Contrary to popular belief, Digital HR is not just about process automation or digitization. Digital transformation is as much of an internal shift as it is an external one. While most firms are focusing on how to best meet the digital demands of current and prospective customers, this can only truly happen when internal processes and ways of thinking are digital, too. Digital HR is a technology-enabled way of work that leverages new age sciences to make HR transactions and decisions intuitive, informed and inspiring to enable organizational effectiveness. It is an integration that embeds HR activities with business on a real-time and real impact basis.” Companies when they think Digital they think Information Technology – however, it’s much more about People than IT. To harness the cognitive capacity of people we must move from industrial digital to human digital.
