Human Resources as a department, generally focuses on hiring, reducing the attrition rate and facilitating employee engagement. As such, more often than not, working on new learning and development technology gets pushed behind. However, with the rate at which hiring and employee retention techniques are changing, it is more important now than ever before for companies to invest in adapting new learning and development technology for their human resource departments. Here are 3 crucial trends that Human Resource departments must utilise:

  • Implementing social media-inspired collaboration platforms

A study conducted on the Evolution of Work stated that over half of all employees involved in the study consider social collaboration as an important tool for organisational purposes. The main benefits of implementing such platforms include more efficient team development and improved relationships between employees working together. Such a platform facilitates the easy transfer of knowledge between employees and subsequently results in better skill development.

  • Employing tools that give each employee feedback

The Evolution of Work study also stated that over half of the participants predicted that tech will be used by companies to evaluate individual and team performance by employees in a real-time setting. Using such technology will allow companies to adjust priorities and project assignments according to the feedback generated for each of their employees.

  • Employing learning technologies that are directed by the employees

Using self-directed learning technologies allows each employee of an organisation to add on to their responsibilities by acquiring the required skills using the platform. Human Resources can build a large library filled with data that the employees can access themselves. This will ultimately result in the employees themselves taking the initiative to expand their skill set and prove themselves more valuable to the organisation.
