Shaping Employee Experience Through Tech. We can help you keep up with this trend!
As the world continues learning how to navigate the pandemic and companies adapt to rapidly changing conditions, organizations with high volume workforce needs are now competing for workers in tight labor markets. With the approaching holiday season, Aldi plans to hire 20,000 people across the country, Walmart will add 20,000 new supply chain associates to their workforce and Amazon announced their plans to hire 75,000 people in its fulfillment and logistics network across the U.S. and Canada.
One of the biggest challenges businesses will need to address more than ever is: apart from the pay rate and benefits, what else can they offer to attract and retain talent? The answer is employee experience. While this can mean different things for different employers, we can summarize that the employee experience goes beyond making people happy about a job, it means helping employees feel satisfied about their lives. Happy workers are more engaged, productive and tend not to move jobs.
HR professionals must prepare and guide organizations towards the future of work, and technology is their best ally to keep up with these trends.
Walmart has recently introduced its "Me@Walmart app", which lets employees easily view their shifts up to two weeks in advance, request changes to their schedule if needed, clock in with a tap of a button once they arrive at their store and find helpful information for their daily activities. The retail giant is also planning to launch new features in the upcoming months.
Another giant, Amazon, also relies on its "Amazon A to Z" app to let employees manage their work-life. Workers sign up for shifts, view in/out times, request time off, access compensation information, company updates and other resources, all with a click of a button.
But it takes a lot more than technology to succeed. While automation and digital processes can help you improve the employee experience, technology can never take away the "human" aspect of Human Resources. How can your business improve the employee experience by tackling these tech trends without losing the human touch? That's something we can help you with.
