Serve Your Employees As Well or Better Than Your Customers – Why HR Must Care About the Future of Consumerization and Service! Moving Beyond The Transaction
In today’s world, where for the first time ever, employees and managers have better technology in their pockets than their workforce has provided them to work with, expectations have never been higher for HR and other business functions to provide workforce facing “experiences” that capture the hearts and minds of workers. While the experience is one thing, the value of that experience must deliver efficiency to the HR function as well as effectiveness to the workforce which is why today, more than ever in the past, we must go beyond the transaction and focus on the overall workforce experience.
We have a short 5 years to prepare and become Workplace 2020 compliant, the readiness measure for organizations combining preparation for new generations of workers, the emergence of new technologies such as mobile and social as well as an overall renewed focus on how service is delivered to employees, managers, contractors, applicants and any other “human” that makes up an organization's most important asset, their people.
In this interactive webinar, Jason Averbook, one of the premier thought leaders in the world around HR, business technology and consumerization will lead you through an exercise discussing:
a) Why now is not only an optimal time but a mandatory time to reinvent how services are delivered to the workforce
b) Why the “transaction” alone will never drive the optimal workforce experience and how surrounding it with knowledge, content and support is required
c) Why deploying processes not modules is important and required thinking for today's HR and business professional
d) How to create a business case for new technologies supporting the workforce experience
e) What will happen if we do nothing and ignore becoming Workplace 2020 compliant
