Nurture digital culture
COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of adapting to rapidly changing circumstances and the role that technology can play in enabling remote work and collaboration. HR leaders need to consider how they can leverage technology to support their workforce management strategies and prepare for the future. This may include:
Assessing the skills and capabilities of your team to determine what they are lacking and how to retool them for the future.
Investing in training and development programs to ensure that your team has the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
Implementing technology solutions that enable remote work and collaboration, such as cloud-based tools like Office 365.
Developing contingency plans to ensure that your organization can continue to operate effectively in the face of future disruptions.
By preparing your team for the future and leveraging technology to support your workforce management strategies, you can build a resilient organization that is better equipped to handle the challenges ahead.
From self-service to DIY
Digital transformation requires a shift from traditional IT models to a more self-service and DIY approach, and one key element of this is empowering employees with the digital skills they need to succeed. This is a strategic initiative that requires the support of HR, as well as a willingness to revise job descriptions, recognition and compensation systems, and training programs to reflect the changing nature of work.
Nurturing digital skills is a journey that requires a focus on continuous learning and development. It's often best to start with something familiar and build from there, encouraging employees to take an active role in their own learning.
Your organization's best practices and knowledge are often held by your people, and digitalization can help unlock this wealth of expertise for reuse and self-service. SharePoint is designed to empower business users, but without the support of HR, these capabilities may go underutilized. By prioritizing digital skills and empowering your employees to take control of their own learning and development, you can drive greater efficiency and effectiveness within your organization.
Key Focus Areas
Implementing a SharePoint communication site as your organization's intranet can be a quick win for demonstrating the value of digital collaboration. By collating and sharing best practices and key information, you can help build a culture of continuous learning and improvement.
SharePoint lists and libraries are a powerful digital replacement for traditional whiteboards and filing cabinets, providing a secure and organized way to store and access important information.
Teams' channels provide a secure platform for functional teams to connect, coordinate, and control operations, fostering greater collaboration and efficiency.
Additionally, Webparts360's ability to incorporate essential employee master data from your back-end HR systems can help deliver convenient self-service functions, empowering employees to take control of their own information and processes.
