The next steps for HR leaders in the technology sector are reshaping the HR function and its value to the business. There’s no doubt of the impact transformative technologies have had in developing an inclusive and diverse workforce. By using applications and new skills to leverage the significant value of transformational technologies like AI and data analytics. HR in tech companies can embrace workforce shaping by aligning your organisation’s business and human resources needs to make sure you have the right employees with the right skill-sets at the right time to help the business run efficiently and effectively.
Upskilling your team and investing in them will increase engagement and loyalty and create a desirable and sought after work environment. This is critical in creating and sustaining the workforce of the future when pursuing a deeper understanding of employee skills, strengths, goals, and purpose while also creating custom-made employee experiences.
Prepare for the advance of AI and its integration into a workforce that combines human and digital labour. Technology within your organisation is most effective when examined with the lens of human-centred design. Remember to provide support and training to your staff with any new technology. Let your team give you feedback on what it is like using the new tech within the practical day to day running of the business. This is invaluable in going forward with any new changes.
Value employees as much as “customers” especially in an increasingly digital, global, and agile workplace. A lot of the times your biggest advocates will be your users and if your employees are using your technology then you will need their frontline knowledge to help evolve your business. This works with any service or product based company. Your employees are your brand ambassadors and treating them as such will help them raise their profile from just an employee.
HR in tech companies are always evolving by encouraging employees to become comfortable with new technologies. This increases connections and supports an overarching people-based agenda as tasks and roles are redefined. This includes seeing a generational workforce as an asset when relating to your product or service to multigenerational customers.
