The Right Blend Makes A Winning Formula for HR team

While not a right and wrong issue, the value of technology to a company's Human Resource function is demonstrable and clear. Winning trades and companies around the world have exploited and utilized technology fully to their advantage. The fact is not relying entirely on technology nor completely overlooking it. A proper blend of these two essential components of Human Resource management can help an organization thrive and outperform others in its family.

When you are not giving technology its due and proper eminence, those who stand firm in the belief that the potential pitfalls or obstacles of technology surpass the potential benefits and gains miss out on improving the human element they purport to embrace. Furthur, this can lead to Human Resource Department remaining bogged down in trying to prove its existence, or at least its high worth, time and time again. This results in a self-bolstering ongoing campaign that detracts from HR's ultimate mission, which includes developing real people, attracting and nurturing - the humans who are the heart of your company.

Blended into an organization properly, Human Resource technology should and does enhance the value and human relationships of employees, from talent acquisition to onboarding of employees and on through to learning and development, succession management and retention. Technology brings clarity and insight to organizational challenges, such as early employee departure. With the help of talent analytics data providing insight into why employees of your organization leave, the value is clearly there. Implemented suitably, technology also enhances engagement, another key component of Human Resource. The cost of poor employee engagement so high, the benefits of  HR technology to greatly enhance engagement, not lower from it, are clear.

 

Technology also misses its own mark

On the other side, an over-dependence on technology can be deleterious. For instance, as your talent winning activities move toward the hiring of a right candidate, the human side becomes more important than technology. Without the human element and more interaction at the later stage of the recruitment stage, there are higher chances of missing key information. Furthermore, HR technology can provide tremendous pieces of important information to feature possible opportunities, such as which employee best fits for your succession planning, or risks/peril, such as which employees are most in jeopardy of leaving the firm. Risks and rewards are all on exhibit and available for augmenting potential and minimizing hard and soft, all through a seamless integration of technology and human elements.
