The hard truth of life that many of us face (or shy from) is change!
Change is inevitable yet we would want things to be just the way they are.
We do not want to get out of our comfort zone. We like the same old way of doing things.
Of course changing would mean a lot of efforts.
Efforts that go into training the new way of doing things and also unlearning what has been learnt and followed all this while. So how does one deal with change?
This blog though is my understanding of what the future holds in store for us. And by us I mean me and my fellow HR managers.
As a Human Resource manager, I always saw one side of business. And that is managing human capital. Human capital is an essential component of managing business. But will the future regard them highly?
With technology taking pace, people are being replaced by machines. Of course they would not be completely replaced (as yet!!). The star trek days are still a couple of generation out.
But with the new millennials People looking for every convenience in the book it is not long before businesses do the same, or are they already!
Automation is what organisations are looking at and with “smarter than us phones” converging our tasks, companies are downsizing big time. So why would you require so many HR managers when the mundane work of a few ‘H’ is manageable by a freaking APP!
HR is moving! From an admin, regular mundane job to a more strategic business partnering. The future of the rest of these daily activities are moving towards automation. Managing attendance and processing payroll has become easy and has been optimised with the introduction of automated services. Businesses are using technology to optimise process in their organisation.
Most people think that all this technology talk and the new smart gadget fad is for any other department but HR. But HR is already there. HR tech plays a vital role in the strategic business partnering.
For the ones who haven’t yet been a part of this tech-revolution, a word of advice is that you do so soon. Make your choice and decide whether you are on the side that survived or that species of HR that could not keep up with change!
I agree. Infact, I think Tech in HR is important because it is connected to the most essential aspect of your organization, that is, the people. It is now possible to enable tech in various ways to collect data that helps to understand the performance, identify trends and check the overall health of Human Resource in any organization.
