The world is in the middle of a major revolution in the way that work is done, much like it experienced with transitions from the Agricultural Age to the Industrial Age. Unlike previous labour shifts, the technologies driving this latest one are now digital. Technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) open up new horizons for organisations and their workers. They take over the mundane and repetitive work normally performed by people, freeing up humans to focus on more strategic, value added activities. In this time of rapid change, maximising humans’ potential to focus on important matters is critical for organisational competitiveness and survival.
The shift is a game changer for workers in general, and it fundamentally impacts the Talent Management and Human Resources (HR) functions. As a driver for recruiting and retaining employees and influencing the company’s brand, the HR function finds itself in a unique position in the modern workforce.
HR professionals can take advantage of emerging new technologies to drive their organisation to develop a competitive edge in the digital age. These new technologies should increase HR’s capability to focus more on the experience of their candidates and employees, and to make the workplace itself, more human-centric.
