PwC’s annual survey across 600 businesses in six different continents asked about how they truly feel about HR-technology. The message was clear - the biggest concern is how the employees experience the new and unfamiliar technologies.
The employee experience is a hot potato these days. Did you know that it can be affected by the technology you utilize at work?
A poorly built employee experience will naturally lead to the employees not being willing or able to utilize the technology you use at work. Technology that is supposed to help you. Is there any use for HR-technology that no one uses?
Of course not. PwC’s survey shows that the c-suite in many businesses are satisfied with their existing HR-technology. The reason why is simple - the just don’t use it. The c-suite is not familiar with the challenges and the poor user experience in many of the softwares. The employees (especially the HR-execs) do however, because they have to struggle with them each and every day. But even though the c-suite is happy with their softwares, they still might be dissatisfied with the efficiency that the softwares provide.
In other words, people want seamless processes at work, but the workplace and technology isn’t always on the same page.
Naturally there’s always barriers and difficulties when implementing new work processes, but the implementation is only one step. Many softwares gets left unused after adoption, simply because of poor user experience. It might sound implicit, but you can’t deal with impractical, unused softwares if your business’ goal is to build a workplace where the employees well-being, behavior and skills shall lead to efficiency.
With that in mind, we want to put it plainly. It’s not the people, but the technology that is flawed.
It must be easier to be able to use and like an HR-system. Therefore we developed a product where contracts of employment and pictures from the summer party can live in sweet, sweet harmony. Huma is a system which is easier to use and easier to like - simply because it’s developed for everyone at the office, and not just for the HR-department.
