HR Dashboards: Good User Experience Is The Key To Productivity

Posted by Mathew French on 22 October 2020

Dashboards can improve the overall experience for users of your HR software - that is, your employees. But did you know they can also provide significant productivity benefits that extend well beyond what you might be aware of (or think is possible)? But how do you access the right data, at the right time, and deliver that data to your employees in the right way so as to have a positive impact on user experience and productivity?. Ultimately, it all comes down to configuration. Many HR systems lack the configuration tools which make it possible for users to configure the software to meet the unique needs of the organisation. That applies just as much to workflows as it does to dashboards. The more configurable your HR software and your HR dashboards are, the more productive your employees will be. Let's take a look at the impact UX can have on ROI through the lens of what HR dashboards make possible.

Agile HR: What Is It And Why Do You Need To Know About It?

Posted by Mathew French on 22 September 2020

If the term (and framework of) Agile isn't on your radar yet, it should be. 'Agile' enables organisations to master continuous change, which makes it perfect for the times we live in. It is essentially THE change management process we all need right about now. It enables organisations to flourish by building resilience in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Agile is also something that can be applied in the context of HR. Agile HR is a fascinating topic but it can be a challenge to change an entire organisational perspective on 'how we do things around here.' So, in this week's HR Blog, we examine what Agile HR is and how it can be applied in your business, and how important it is to the future of work.

Technology and Trust: Why Your Values Matter More Than Ever

Posted by Mathew French on 2 July 2020

Deloitte recently published a fantastic article about the increasing importance of applying your company’s values in relation to people, processes and technology. The take-away: "In a time of perpetual technological disruption, earning (and keeping) the trust of all your stakeholders is a 360 degree challenge as well as being a massive opportunity." Ensuring that you apply and use technology in an ethical manner, especially if you're an NFP, NGO or charity, is a trend that is predicted to increase in relevance (and necessity). As we discussed in our last Blog about Edelman's 2020 Trust Barometer report, trust is hard to gain and easy to lose, so let's take a look at what this evolving trend around technology means for HR best practice in your business.

Let's Talk About Trust and Transparency

Posted by Mathew French on 23 June 2020

Edelman has been publishing their annual Trust Barometer Report for 20 years now, and the 2020 report illustrates what you might call an 'epic fail' in trust across the board. No institutions are seen as being both competent AND ethical. Only business is seen as being competent and only NGOs are seen as ethical. Add to that the fact that 56% percent of respondents believe that capitalism as it currently operates today is doing more harm than good and you can see that there is both a significant need for change as well as a tremendous opportunity for transformation. It shouldn't surprise anyone to hear that trust and transparency are more critical to success than ever, especially given current circumstances. So let's take a look at the highlights from the 2020 Trust Barometer Report and how they matter to you.

Global Human Capital Trends 2020 - Deloitte's Annual Report

Posted by Mathew French on 18 June 2020

Every year, Deloitte conducts an extensive study on the emerging and prevailing trends in human capital and the future of work. Each year, the post we write on our HR blog about that report is always one of the most popular. In 2020, the Human Capital Trends Report highlights an intensifying combination of economic, social, and political issues impacting HR and business leaders. These factors continue to put pressure on businesses to operate in a more socially oriented manner (a continuation of 2019's trend, which we covered in a previous HR blog post), and to reinvent their organisations around a more ethical and human focus. Let's take a look at the highlights of this year's report and discover the HR metrics that matter in 2020 and beyond.
