The underlying success of an organization is its people. To achieve this goal, most HRMs undergo digital transformation. Beyond digital transformation, HR professionals need to take an extra step in upgrading their digital tool stack to better serve their employees and reinforce their commitment and loyalty to the organization. Companies invest in technology for two key reasons: Increase Productivity and Compliance. But the biggest question and challenge for HR teams in a post-pandemic era is – Are your employees protected?

Fleet Management Tools
Security is a big concern for many companies. Keeping employees safe when they are off-site must be your top priority before looking out for smart assistant software. Managing the employee fleet, making it safe and supportive during peak hours can help boost the productivity of the employees. Compliance Solutions can be leveraged by HR teams to monitor service violations by cab drivers and fleet forces whose actions directly impact the productivity of the organization at large.
Collaboration software is increasingly gaining momentum in the post-pandemic era as most teams in the organization are going on a remote working model. Cloud document storage and video conferencing tools can help maximize the interaction space and communicate and share ideas/information/goals/requirements of the organization. The software provides hassle-free interactions and reduces miscommunication/misunderstanding between employees and gets connected to the right point of contact.
Health has become a major concern for organizations as employees’ well-being is directly connected to business output and efficiency.

Internet of Things (IoT)
There is no doubt that IoT has generated massive information about employees to aid resource managers in building decisions and strategies. IoT can allow HR to create a positive and flexible work environment by enabling devices, sensors, and intelligent cameras to monitor employee presence, workflow, safety, and security from a distance. HR can also ensure that the well-being of employees is favorable for better business performance and outcomes. IoT has helped resource teams to boost engagement levels and act as a stressbuster.
Master Alert System
It is always safe for HR professionals to have an emergency plan in place whether your organization has 200 or 2000 employees so that employees would not have to go clueless in an emergency situation but have a clear plan of action.

As a recent study suggests that over 97% of employees use text messages to communicate and on average use gadgets 85 times a day, HRs need a mass alert system to keep employees posted about any crises or dangers lying ahead of time. Automation and AI tools like voice calls, automated emails, message texts, app push notifications, and social media alerts are some best ways to reach employees.
