5 keys for human resources digital transformation in 2021

Human resources digital transformation
Digital transformation is already a reality for many organizations and has become a necessity for medium and small businesses. Now, more than ever, companies are focusing on the digital transformation of all business areas, including HR.
"Companies have been driving their digitalization in the wake of the pandemic, and their CEOs anticipate an increase in the areas that will be affected by this process," according to the study 'CEO Outlook 2020: COVID19' published by KPMG.
In this article we explain 5 main aspects to be taken into account in the digital HR transformation processes.

What you must take into account for a human resource digital transformation

Below we describe the 5 aspects that niikiis considers essential to work on in order to carry out a correct human resources digital transformation.

Analysis of needs

Before even starting the digital transformation process, a company’s goals must be defined, specifically with an assessment of an organization’s needs starting with the HR department. This assessment within HR will help to define what is needed for the company as a whole.
"Before implementing a tool or adjusting a new way of working, it is crucial to evaluate what is really needed. Knowing the problems will allow solutions to be found on a case-by-case basis."
In the current context of the global pandemic, many companies have the same HR needs such as:
  • Remote working.
  • Work flexibility.
  • Not being able to engage as before.
  • Ways to care for the physical, mental and emotional health of their teams.

Evolution towards a more strategic and agile department

The digital transformation of HR helps us to speed up the day-to-day necessary procedures in people management. We are talking about how administrative tasks, with the right tools and technology, could be more agile.

Examples of these administrative tasks would be:

  • Vacation requests.
  • Employee absenteeism measurement.

According to the study “Accelerating the path to HR 3.0”, conducted by IBM’s Institute for Business Value, 75% of Human Resources directors worldwide indicated that cloud and data analysis will be a priority for their businesses in 2022.
"The choice of an appropriate "Human Resources Information System" will facilitate the work of the HR department."
