The ongoing pandemic has taken digital transformation from an option to a priority for most companies. HR has also been pushed to take on a bigger role in steering the business in the right direction. While many companies have already dipped their toes into the digital waters in the past year, this is not enough. The path of transformation is long and ever-changing.
Julien Quester-Semeon, pre-sales and COE Manager for SAP Cloud Solutions, gives Human Resources an exclusive sneak peek into his views on HR digital transformation, prior to his highly anticipated panel discussion at HR Collective Series – Is HR Digital Transformation Still Your Priority? tomorrow.
What are the few points you would like to address during the panel discussion?
We hear about HR digital transformation every day. Some would think that there's a magic recipe for it. Yet it means something different for each and every employee, each and every HR professional, each and every organisation.
For some companies it's a very pragmatic need, meaning digitisation of the most routine tasks like time off request, job offer signature and document management.
For others, it can be inspirational and driven by candidate engagement, talent development and employee retention.
The difference is not only in its definition. It's also in the journey and in the experience.
In this event, we will exchange points of view on what it means for the leading Hong Kong companies and share some of the main trends we notice in local and global markets.
