The relationship between human resources (HR) and IT should focus on creating efficient processes for employees, say HR heads in India.
While there have been fears of automation impacting traditional jobs, emerging technologies are also paving way for new job roles. In the fast-changing world of technology, it is not just the employees who need to be prepared.
The companies also need to learn and adapt to innovation so they can find and hire the most deserving candidates for any given job. To achieve this, the human resources department will need to work along with the IT team to develop strategies that leverage newer technologies.
Innovation to optimize HR processes
HR heads say the relationship between HR and IT should focus on creating efficient processes for employees. While HR processes may struggle to stay on top of technology, with collaboration and support from IT, HR can overcome those challenges. The collaboration will help develop best practices around technology for the entire organization.
“The HR function of businesses should leverage technological, analytical and intuitive tools to become more efficient in spotting and hiring the right resources. Innovative tools will continue to help employees in their up-skilling or reskilling initiatives in 2019,” mentions Visweswara Rao, senior vice president and chief HR officer, CSS Corp.
