Technology is reshaping how human resource departments operate. EBN has been keeping a close eye on HR innovations. Here, the editors provide a list of technologies and tools that have caught their attention.
Performance management software
Performance management systems track employees’ progress -- from onboarding through the end of their tenure. The systems allow HR to set targets and objectives and then to regularly assess how well workers are progressing.
Training management applications deliver and track employee education programs. With a good system in place, employers can more easily run effective learning programs and record the success completion of instructional programs.
Employers make significant investments to source and recruit the best candidates, but often leave these same new hires to find their own way around the organization once they start. Onboarding tools can help get new workers going.
Bosses should do more to make the work-from-home experiment palatable and safe for all involved by subsidizing utility bills and workspace equipment, and changing managerial habits, with more trust given to employees.
