5 tips on how to successfully digitize your HR

Successful digitalization of HR

Everyone is talking about digitalization. According to Google searches, the concept is absolutely and increasingly on trend. Digitalization was even a topic at the World Economic Forum in January. But how does one digitalize? Here are our 5 tips summarizing how to digitalize your HR successfully and efficiently.

1. Develop a vision

As an old Japanese proverb says: “A vision without action is a daydream; action without vision is a nightmare.” Develop a picture of where you want to go. Show what your HR department should look like after successfully completing the digitalization.

2. Convince the top management

The digitalization of the HR department is not a top priority for many companies. Make it one! Show the added value that such a project can bring. Do the sums for the business case and present a roadmap for digitalization. Get the top management on board.

3. Get the employees alongside you

Be aware that the process of digitalization will be accompanied by great change. For employees, it is worrying see that the idea is for their work to be taken over by software in the future. What will be left for them to do if a chatbot takes over part of the administrative work? Work with team members on the HR department’s vision of the roles they will take after digitalization and how they can evolve toward them.

4. Build a team with IT and HR

HR digitalization will be successful if HR and IT develop a joint plan and pull in the same direction. This also helps convince the top management.

5. Begin!

Make a start. You don't have to introduce all systems at once. You might start with the document-management system or a tool for producing job references, then you carry on step by step.
