Technology Empowering Organizations to Rebuild their Workplaces
Companies are now offering their employees new formats of learning like pre-recorded sessions, delivering L&D programs in short byte-sized modules, virtual classroom sessions, and breaking down virtual live learning into small programs for effective learning.
Fremont, CA: The time is not far when workplaces will be defined by technology. With technology enabling the drive towards a distributed workforce, agile organizations will witness an evolutionary change in everything from ways of collaboration, work culture, and engagement to problem-solving. While the pandemic has changed the course of events, it is essential to note that technology has helped organizations enable transformation.
Digitalization of Human Resources
Usually, human resources have been slow to adopting technology up until the novel coronavirus started putting companies in crisis. Earlier, they were using analytics- often called people analytics, to manage the workforce through data-driven decision making. The worldwide pandemic has, however, called attention to the true potential of digital HR.
Business Resiliency Plan
Last year, the COVID- 19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown impacted many businesses across the globe. This crisis further highlighted the importance of business continuity. Organizations with an effective Business Continuity Plan in place seemed to be less impacted and were in a better position to improve their infrastructure and adapt to changing working environments when faced with adversities. In 2021, companies are giving priority to building a robust business resiliency plan. They are focusing on equipping their remote workers effectively and identifying challenges early enough to take necessary measures in time. Organizations are also reviewing their policies to enable transformation in essential aspects of their businesses.
Learning on the GO
Nowadays, companies are exploring alternative digital learning strategies to form an agile and skilled workforce. Companies are now offering their employees new formats of learning like pre-recorded sessions, delivering L&D programs in short byte-sized modules, virtual classroom sessions, and breaking down virtual live learning into small programs for effective learning.
