HR Transformation and Technology

Driving value for the business

True competitive advantage has always come from focusing on the human aspects of the workplace, such as a strong culture, great people managers, innovation and empowerment. The right HR technology brings simple and standard processes from the outside in so your people and organisation can focus on what really makes a difference and work at their peak.

Transcript

Technology is getting faster, more immersive and intuitive. And as technology changes, so does the way we live; we are becoming increasingly connected to our devices and expect to have constant information at our fingertips. But what does this mean for the workplace? 95% of CEOs are planning to make changes to how their organisations use technology. Organisations of all sizes are investing in cloud, social, mobile, analytics and increasingly robotics and cognitive computing technologies capable of unlocking the human potential of their workforce.

Technology is now a key enabler for transformation. The organisations who have shifted their thinking from “How do we change the technology to make it work for us?” to, “How do we change ourselves to get the best out of the technology?” will be poised to outperform their peers and for bigger returns in the years ahead. Our clients are shifting their technology to the cloud as a catalyst for change, to achieve cost savings, greater self-sufficiency, innovation and agility. Leading businesses don’t want customisable HR, they want to be provided with best in class solutions from the outside that can be easily deployed and adopted.

To truly be successful and reap the rewards of great technology, you need a plan that goes beyond just a simple system implementation. Change at this scale requires a strategic vision and executive alignment, as critical systems are replaced and old ways of working are disrupted.

Capitalise on new opportunities

Organisations are dealing with the reality of a digital-native workforce, and an increasing pace of change driven by new demographics, emerging markets and technology. But how do you turn these challenges into opportunities?

The leading organisations have shifted from asking “How do we change the technology to make it work for us?” to “How do we change what we do to get the best out of the technology?” and are using the best of the consumer internet to help them to drive their bottom line.

Case studies

HR technology sits at the heart of our People and Organisation practice supported by analytics, organisational design and mobility. We help our clients to realise long-term, sustainable value from their HR SaaS implementation by working holistically from business case to implementation, through to HR transformation and change.
