Retain your top talent – Optimize your HR applications – Strengthen your HXM

Companies have to find, recruit and optimally support highly qualified specialists in order to retain them over the long term. The shortage of skilled employees is just one of vast number of challenges that needs to be overcome. The know-how, expertise and enthusiasm of employees have a direct impact on a company’s revenues and are a business’s most valuable asset. If their employees feel good, so will their customers.

Roadmap for successfully preparing for your HR transformation

Roadmap for successfully preparing for your HR transformation

Promote your most valuable asset – your employees: Roadmap for successfully preparing your HR transformation by valantic people.

The three components for a future-oriented HR transformation

Employees
Processes and IT systems
Human Resources Management
  1. Employees – your most valuable asset

    Employees want to be valued and listened to. 71 percent emphasize that open communication with managers has an “extremely high” impact on their job satisfaction. Hierarchies are a thing of the past – today’s paradigm is New Work. This also includes state-of-the-art technologies that enable employees to perform their tasks quickly, productively and efficiently. One third of employees would not hesitate to leave the company if the IT tools they use are too antiquated, too cumbersome or too slow (source: Uncovering the positive drivers of employee experience. Ultimate Software and The Center of generational kinetics).

  2. Processes and IT systems – your most important enabler

    The digital workplace and internal communications have always been crucial and have received another huge impulse in terms of relevance under Corona (Survey: Corona Redefines IT Priorities, valantic). Offer your employees a working environment which, also technologically, allows them to develop their talents to the fullest and make the maximum possible contribution to the company’s success.

    Key components include a long-term IT strategy and IT ecosystem that precisely aligns business, IT and HR and supports optimization of your processes. IT strategy consulting from valantic will help your company to masterfully overcome these challenges – both present and future.

  3. HR management – Your strategic business partner

    The shortage of skilled employees and highly qualified, self-confident generation of digital natives place considerable demands on HR management in companies. What is needed is a bespoke employee experience – from recruiting and onboarding to career planning, further training and flexible work arrangements – aligned with a modern IT solution and the company’s goals. An HR transformation with the components Onboarding, Learning and Communications creates the necessary conditions for this.

    HR management, however, often lacks the time for higher-value and strategically relevant HR tasks, being disproportionately involved with routine tasks and standard activities – primarily due to a lack of process automation and IT HR tools. The biggest time wasters in day-to-day HR work include: Preparing and editing documents (65%), managing and analyzing data (50%), and handling inquiries (42%). Communication with employees, management, strategic HR development and talent management often fall by the wayside.

    These deficits can seriously endanger your long-term business success and the reasons for them often lie in a suboptimal HR strategy (source: HR Study 2020: The Digitalization of Human Resources, forcont gmbh and University of Halle-Wittenberg).

The perfect match: Your HR strategy + Our IT know-how

HR managers can only master the challenges of New Work successfully if all three building blocks are taken into account: Employees, processes / IT systems and HR. This is not easy, but a great  solution is at hand: A state-of-the-art, integrative, employee-centric HR IT management that combines all of the advantages. Only then will HR become a success driver in your company that sets you apart from the competition and generates the maximum possible value add.
