Business culture is changing fast, really fast, and technology is leading this charge. So-called “people analytics” may still be in soft-focus like the image above but it is starting to be embraced by a wide spectrum of companies to determine employee engagement, happiness and other qualitative measures that in the past were often overlooked and undervalued.
It’s worth sharing a recap of this trend from Forbes. The story explores how smart use of these measures can improve productivity, career development and uplift company culture for the benefit of all (and the bottom line). Forbes also takes a look at how engagement is becoming more about experience and how HR is quickly becoming digitalised. Josh Bersin of Deloitte’s argues that we will soon be toppling legacy HR solutions with fresh digital tools.
Coming from employment screening these developments are welcome and also part of a trend that we have already identified. That trend, in which the employee’s company experience begins prior to employment through best practice user-friendly approaches that values them as a person has already begun.
