HR technology played a huge role in helping SMBs pivot to a distributed work environment over this past year. As employees are crucial to organizational effectiveness in being able to deliver services to their clients, team members needed to feel supported.
This support comes in the form of cultural reinforcement as well as other programs that make the actual work easier to perform. Tools that enable easier communication are key to fulfilling both of these needs. Similarly, culture promoting technologies make sure to keep employees focused and feeling like they're contributing to the team dynamic.
HR tech is changing drastically as we enter 2021 and beyond. Tools are becoming faster, more efficient, and easier to use. Technology providers, such as ourselves, recognize the speed at which business is happening and the need for quick interactions.
Additionally, the increasingly young (and remote) workforce demands specific qualities out of their personal tech choices and those aspects - such as aesthetics, usability, personalization, and shareability - are requirements for future tech development.
As an example, the traditional annual performance reviews are a relic of a previous generation; this system will see a massive shift moving forward, catering towards the needs and mentality of a new generation of workers.
