Digital transformation is the process of creating a more efficient, transparent, and cost-effective approach to HR by implementing innovative technology and operations. The digital transformation of HR is a response to the rapid development of technology and the constant-evolution of company and employee needs. HR departments that implement technology into their processes experience a variety of benefits, including more dynamic teams, happier employees, and a better workflow.
If you are an HR professional who is ready to move your workforce into the future, you need to understand how to begin the digital transformation of your department. Here, we’re going to take a look at the significant components of HR digital transformation and how implementing Native Apply is essential to your success.
HR Designed Around Employees’ Needs
In the past, HR departments designed their processes around the needs of the company. Their efficiency was based upon the company’s expectations and timeline while giving little thought to the needs and desires of prospective employees.
Fast forward to today, and the role of HR has made a significant shift from simply filling roles to finding and securing the best talent for open positions. As a result, companies now base their HR processes around employees’ needs: meaning, a more straightforward application process, faster timelines, and a more transparent interview process.
The New HR Is Built Around Mobility
Companies that want to embrace HR’s digital transformation must consider mobility. Across the globe, over 5 billion people own smartphones, and much of their lives exist on those devices. Therefore, mobility is a distinct component in creating a positive employee experience.
A primary way HR departments can address mobility is to make their application mobile-friendly. According to research, over 90% of candidates search for jobs using their mobile devices, and nearly 45% of candidates do so daily. Furthermore, some of the most valuable candidates on the market prefer to apply via their mobile device because it is more conducive to their busy lifestyles.
The Digital Transformation Requires Updated Technology
Currently, over 50% of companies are redesigning their HR processes to include digital and mobile technology. Upgraded technology is essential to successful digital transformation because they help achieve goals such as improved employee experience. The primary objective of technology is to create more efficient processes throughout the HR department. Therefore, each HR department must be strategic regarding the tools, software, and apps they choose. Furthermore, HR departments must continuously assess their technology to make sure it is producing the results they desire.
