Why HR Technology Can Save Your Business in the ‘Next Crisis’

Businesses Surviving the Covid-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has been a real test for organisations around the world, with business resilience and innovation put to the test. Many enterprises did not see the catastrophe coming and were hit hard by the unexpected event, leading business leaders to question whether they are ready for the ‘next crisis’.

Businesses have accelerated the adoption of technology to ensure the survival of their operations. According to a survey by Human Resource Executive, 83% of surveyed respondents say their organisation had become more digitally focused during Covid-19 and 80% believe that their company would continue accelerating their digital transformation post-Covid.

The availability of remote working, video conferencing, and instant messaging has allowed many companies to operate as normal even outside the usual office working conditions. However, if businesses do not continue adopting new solutions to streamline operations and evolve with the latest technologies the next upcoming crisis could bring down their business.

HR Technology Has Become Crucial to Business Resilience!

Technology has made incredible advancements and we are expecting the business world to adopt more tech solutions to improve business operations. The HR department is an area that is in the midst of a digital transformation as many organisations have said it’s been key in their successful response to the pandemic.

In an interview done by the HR Daily Advisor, the founder of upstartHR, Ben Eubanks stated that 97% of companies that said they were ready for the pandemic and were able to adapt quickly, stated that HR tech was a key part to success. Organisations that spent time and effort to improve and work on human resources are the ones that have overcome the pandemic-induced challenges.

Many businesses neglect the digital transformation of their HR and instead favouring more frontend operations like Sales, but Leaders with a long-term vision should find a balance and create better harmony by improving all areas of operations.
