Concepts such as employee loyalty and allegiance to one’s organization have long since become just that, concepts! HR technology is definitely not the only reason for this, but care must be taken to ensure that it doesn’t exacerbate the conditions that are dividing the fragile bond between employer and employees. Attractive pay packages alone cannot bind employees to their work, and profits alone cannot be the only driving force behind an organization’s existence.
Wherever we look, we find software replacing HR-related functions and streamlining them better than ever, offering highly positive and sustainable business performance that carries down to the organization’s bottom line. Isn’t that consummation devoutly to be wished for? What more does anyone want? Let’s find out!
Ultimately, it’s a choice made by the organization when adopting a technology to assist in its human capital management processes, to enjoy the competitive advantage and profits it brings. An organization that respects the talent it has on board may choose to stay integrated and engaged with it. Talent engagement is any day a smarter option to choose than all the efforts to engage new talent, because the current ones have walked away in frustration and disappointment.
Employers who understand this enough to put work-around solutions to avoid becoming too de-humanized stand to benefit in the long run. Just look at areas that require such intervention, to maintain good employee relations and engage your employees.
There is no contradicting the value of HR technology in providing excellent insight into what is working and what’s not; but ultimately it’s necessary for the humane side of the organization to responsively handle its human assets without compromising on its organizational culture and core values that have been built painstakingly over time.
Finally, it’s a rare HR technology, like SmartTrack, that can effectively support your organizational decision to embrace diversity and inclusion practices. Using a HR technology is great in that it helps in the establishment of efficient management systems, in streamlining business processes, in rationalizing procedures and implementing organizational discipline and policies, while improving your responsiveness to competitive pressures by seamlessly integrating business strategy with processes. The aim here is not to hold technology culpable for any loss of human values – but to throw light on such a possible risk and ways to mitigate it.
