A leading global company in the FMGC and healthcare space leveraged the power of HR tech to create an app that helped the organisation to cut down health risk factors of its employees by 2.7 % which in turn translated into measurable employee productivity and had a tangible impact on the company’s bottom line.
Needless to mention that a great degree of mental and physical well-being at work resulted in an enhanced level of employee satisfaction.
Taking a broad view of what construes employee well-being and consequently creating a committed system to support and equip employees with the right resources was a part of the framework while enabling employees to keep a tab on their progress. Well, the organisation in question is none other than Johnson and Johnson.
Take another case, where a women employee in a leadership position is working remotely alongside managing the household chores.
How does she get access to relevant policy documents and progress reports at the nth hour just before a scheduled meeting? Well, integrating a chatbot functionality on the workstation helps to save the day and consequently make employee meetings more productive.
The HR function is riddled with a number of administrative tasks, therefore technology letting leaders focus on strategic functions can prove like a much-needed respite for them.
Delving briefly on the benefits of HR Tech, Sayeed Anjum, Co-founder and CTO, greytHR says, “HR tech can revolutionize the way we address HR challenges by streamlining processes, improving data accuracy, and enabling faster and more informed decision-making. With the right HR tech tools, HR managers can automate routine tasks such as recruiting, onboarding, and performance management, freeing up time to focus on more strategic initiatives. A large part of this gain in productivity is by means of employee-self service through mobile apps and web employee portals.”
“From identifying and tracking key metrics such as employee engagement, retention, and productivity, HR tech has the potential to transform HR from a reactive, administrative function to a proactive, strategic partner in driving business success, the only initial hurdle will be the resistance to change that comes with adopting advancement in technology”, he adds.
