If you’re a professional who has been working in the human resources industry for some time, you might feel as though current technology is making you less relevant.
While advances in the HR technology world can make your life easier, human resources will always need people to function properly. Fortunately for you, there have been sweeping changes in onboarding that you need to know about in order to keep pace with the changing human resource world. Here are four of the biggest changes in onboarding, and offboarding, that you can adopt in your business right now.
Maybe the biggest challenge in keeping pace with the changes of modern technology is knowing when to introduce new processes, and when you should hang on to what you have now. When you are speaking with leaders in the field, they will be able to help you understand, appreciate, and execute the changes you need. They should also be able to assist you in adopting these new processes in as seamless a manner as possible.
When you are talking about "the cloud" there are a myriad of options for every size business to take into consideration. What often ends up happening, with those who just adopt the use of the technology, is that they invest more than is necessary. Another pain point for many businesses is that they have "the cloud" but they don't make full use of it's potential. When adopting this technology, you need to have a guide who can help you ensure that what you are using it in a way that makes sense for your business’s needs.
One more thing, which some businesses often do when they swap up to bigger servers or cloud technologies, is that they forget the past and move forward too fast. Your business should always be thinking about what's next. Still, especially when it comes to the delicate private files of your employees used for both onboarding and offboarding, your use of newly introduced technologies needs to be as sensitive and deliberate as possible. You don't want civil law suits coming your way because your old technologies were phased out too abruptly and there was no roadmap to where that information ultimately ended up. Working with a partner who understands how important this knowledge is, and who will work with you in a way that you can understand is vital.
Similar to the roadmap that tracks your information’s final location, you also need a way for all your company files to be migrated to your new servers in as seamless and uninterrupted a manner as possible. It’s a mistake to believe that you’ll be able to stop doing business for six months while you input decades worth of data into your new cloud servers and still run a successful business. You need a partner who understands the challenges associated with moving data, and who can help you find it a secure home.
