As the new tech-savvy generation enters the workforce, the adoption of these technologies is becoming increasingly essential for organisations to stay on top of new work models. Embracing technological advances in the workplace has many advantages, including a rise in performance, productivity, motivation, and effectiveness.
Here are a few examples of how technologies are transforming the modern workplace:
Technological solutions have been vital in effectively implementing and managing hybrid work. Solutions include the cloud, file-sharing software, cybersecurity tools, instant messaging, collaboration tools, dynamic work-scheduling apps, and more. The ability to work anywhere and anytime with collaboration tools empowers teamwork with no borders. Investing in the right technology can create significant business value and productivity.
The importance of employee health and safety has increased especially with the need for contact tracing Covid-19 infections. As a security measure, around 93% of employers have diverted their attention to using technology for tracking workplace visitors for purposes of employee protection and contact tracing. Furthermore, the rise in initiatives towards emotional and mental health is being addressed through technologies like employee experience apps. These apps measure employee satisfaction which can assist organisations in creating strategies to satisfy their employees and decrease turnover.
Digital talent platforms are being used to recruit a growing number of freelancers. With the combined use of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), Human Resources Information System (HRIS), and Candidate Relationship Management (CRM) platforms, candidates can be automatically screened, their interviews can be scheduled, and their skills can be matched to a job posting. The corporate sector now favours artificial intelligence (AI) integration into these technologies because it eliminates unconscious hiring prejudice.
Digital automation can increase organizations’ cost and time savings, allowing them to prioritise core business objectives. Automating certain activities also decreases human error and produces a more technologically advanced workforce. AI can improve automation, and additionally improve workplace quality of life such as by increasing efficiency and streamlining communication between departments.
Employees can now undergo training digitally, allowing for customization and personalization of learning according to their own needs. Workplace Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), e-learning platforms, and online coaching are some examples of ways employers can provide immersive training pathways.
