If left unchecked, these challenges can prove detrimental to the viability of any corporate organisation. In addition to ensuring companies can meet their talent demands, HR transformation initiatives need to drive organisational agility and employee productivity. While new digital technologies have helped organisations improve on these counts, the fluid nature of work and stiff competition for talent requires the support of people across the entire organisation to make HR transformation a success.
Today, developing processes that align with industry best practices while keeping employee experience front and centre, can be made possible by HR transformation. This critical initiative can help establish cross-functional connections, rethink organisational structures for agility, and build data-driven people practices, so crucial for companies to stay ahead of the competition. Thus, while HR transformation has become a business imperative, its success critically hinges on how companies are able to carry their people along this transformation journey.
In a world of work upended by the pandemic, companies need to embrace processes and technologies that can help them navigate uncertainty and institute systems that can potentially make them future-ready. Systems that reflect the current business realities, and provide insightful, actionable pathways for improved competitiveness, profitability, and growth through HR transformation. Alight's HR transformation services are geared towards equipping companies precisely with these capabilities, enabling them to maximise the true potential of their HR transformation.
Businesses are rushing to transform their people-management practices by upgrading the technologies at their disposal. However, it’s important to remember that there is more to HR transformation than just technology. HR transformation, which can have a profound impact on corporate organisations and the stakeholders involved, must be backed by a sharp, unwavering focus on developing and enabling HR professionals to make insightful and innovative decisions to win the talent game.
