HR departments have been slower to adopt digitalisation than other company divisions, and they can no longer afford to lag behind. However, caution is advised: correct data interpretation and respect for the privacy of your (potential) employees is key. Flexso consultant Stijn Verschueren joined HR professionals Heidi Delobelle (AG Insurance), Kim Van Loo (SD Worx), Els Van De Velde (DILEOZ) and Vincent Van Malderen (Poolstok) at an HR Magazine round table to discuss these challenges.
Beyond the hype
One of the compelling reasons this panel found for HR to turn to digital solutions is that the hype has died down. What’s left is a realistic expectation of the technology, which means it can now be used as a facilitator and extension of the human factor. After all, digital solutions are important assets, but the people who rely on and apply these tools are what truly makes the difference. Finding the right balance between the two is where the future of HR lies.
The key to a successful digitalisation track, according to Stijn, is to keep it simple. “Go back to basics and make sure the digital platforms you implement provide real added value for your employees.”
