Key Insights

The Evolving Role of HR in the Digital Era

In her keynote presentation, Angela shed light on the transformative journey of HR in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic’s challenges. She emphasized how HR departments navigated the sudden shift to remote work, overcame communication barriers, and tackled documentation hurdles. By sharing AHG Labs’ experience of integrating innovative systems, partnering with digital solution providers like DottedSign, and embracing the insights of data analytics, Angela demonstrated how HR could evolve beyond its traditional administrative role. She stressed the importance of adopting technology, expanding HR’s scope, and leveraging digital breakthroughs to enhance efficiency, make data-driven decisions, and prepare for future demands.

Utilizing Digital Tools and Technology in Business Today

For organizations hesitant to embrace digital transformation, the panelists advised starting small and scaling gradually. Jin suggested beginning with basic business operations like HRMS, customer relationship management (CRM), or accounting systems and emphasized the availability of tools for different budgets. Angela shared her experience integrating communication tools during the COVID-19 pandemic and recommended proving their value to management by utilizing free trials to showcase possible long-term results.

A key takeaway from the discussion was the importance of AI, automation, and application programming interfaces (APIs) in transforming HR processes. Elizabeth highlighted how AI-embedded platforms can provide instant answers to employment regulation changes and workforce insights, saving clients valuable time. She also emphasized the affordability of many AI tools, making them accessible to businesses of all sizes.

Another crucial aspect discussed was user adoption during change management. Jin stressed the importance of intuitive, user-friendly tools that require minimal training, shifting the responsibility of onboarding and employee training to the vendor side. Elizabeth further highlighted the significance of self-serve platforms with comprehensive support options to cater to different cultural preferences.
