Tomorrow is NOW. Are We There Yet?

Traditionally, HR was always viewed as a paper-intensive, non-innovative area, where salary decisions are made, people get hired or fired and where team building sessions are organized. But behind the scenes, and, in the face of accelerating turbulence and change, business leaders and policy makers need new ways of thinking to sustain performance and growth; the industry is changing and incorporating technology. Landscape is evolving without a doubt, and the Industry, collectively with the Human Resources, needs to re-evaluate its approaches and revisit strategies for countering emerging challenges and to tap new opportunities and cope with the market.

The “Society for Human Resource Management” identified employee engagement, talent retention, competitive compensation, and developing the organizational leaders for tomorrow as major human capital challenges.

These challenges are related to the rapid changes in technology sparked innovation inside HR departments across the world that have affected businesses in more ways than we can count, from globalization and organizational adjustments to a workforce demanding for remote and mobile job opportunities; human resources have to adapt swiftly. If HR wants to continue to play a critical role in helping businesses anticipate and manage organizational change, it must have technology at its core.

Therefore, a good question might be: what are the technological innovations that will drive human resource technology trends in the future which include understanding the Future from system, technology, security, and digital-experience perspectives, and correlating preparedness for the future with the sustainability of the digital ecosystem.

Hence, Human resources must seek to reshape the way we think and address the challenges organizations and individuals are facing, the transformation required and impact on the overall ecosystem. HR will play a pivotal role in aligning company culture, talent, structure and processes to make sure that businesses select the right tools for delivering the best employee digital experience.
