How driving HR digital transformation can help you attract and retain your talents

In our private lives, we use every day many applications that enable us in a few clicks to order food, to sell our unused clothes, to get inspired with personalized content or to watch our favorite movies. 

However, things become more complicated when it comes to recording our leave requests, choosing the best training to develop our professional skills or simply being informed about the latest breaking news of our company! However, nowadays employees are increasingly expecting the same 2-clicks experience at work as they do in their private lives.

Employees now want to be quickly informed and served through user-friendly and intuitive tools at work. More newsworthy than ever, this evolution is reinforced by the continuous changes in our ways of working and by the thin boundaries that exist between our professional and private lives, forcing us to rethink the way we interact at work and how we can better support the business in a digital way.

Well-being and work environment are also becoming key priorities to ensure that employees remain engaged, motivated and involved in their role, which has a direct impact on their performance and ultimately, on the business results.

Therefore, companies should proactively listen, understand, and embrace the needs of their employees’ in the way they behave, work and feel connected with others. Moreover, it is important to reduce complexity and unnecessary tasks to free up time so employees can focus on activities that have more added value for the business.
