The digitisation of today’s job market and work environments
Not only is the ongoing digitisation of everyday and personal activities a presence in our daily lives – digitisation also penetrated the world of business quite some time ago and is no longer limited to global conglomerates. Even to small and medium-sized companies, the so-called Industry 4.0 offers an increasing number of opportunities and options.
However, how does this affect parts of the working world that are associated with human attributes such as people skills, intercultural awareness or basic social competency – the field of human resources management?
As evident from the “HR Strategy & Organisation 2017” study conducted by the German Human Resource Management Association (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Personalführung e.V.) in cooperation with a human resources and management consulting firm in 2017, the digitisation of human resources management is still not a permanent fixture in the HR strategy of 80% of the more than 300 human resources managers interviewed.
What is the reason for this?
Is it necessary or actually even possible to digitise these departments?
Many small and medium-sized companies have reservations about the digitisation of the human resources management departments. The question is, what are the exact assignments an HR manager is required to handle that should possibly be digitised?
We have compiled an overview of the 10 most important responsibilities of an HR manager for you below:
All of the tasks listed above ensure that the perfect number of staff members with the proper qualifications and know-how are at the right place within the company at the right time.
Other important duties human resources experts are directly responsible for include:
These three disciplines aim at maintaining and, if necessary, boosting the performance, motivation and morale among employees.
The following are also part of the responsibilities of an HR Manager:
The latter two HR management responsibilities require the processing of larger data volumes in a specifically created or dedicated information system.
People are an important – ideally – the most important resource for a company. Hence, the responsibility of HR management is nothing less than administer, supporting, motivating and satisfying this resource.
This task should not be underestimated – neither in terms of the key role it plays, nor as far as the time investment it requires are concerned.
It is in the interest of every company to ideally equip and support his human resources management.
This can be achieved by choosing a carefully selected HR software program.
It cannot and should not be a substitute for any of the above responsibilities; however, good software can save a significant amount of time. Ideally, it can handle some assignments automatically.
An interview with a job candidate should never be conducted without an HR manager, department head or team leader. Nevertheless, it is possible to reduce the time spent on administrative tasks considerably, which will free up HR managers to dedicate the time saved to other tasks.
