HR Technology Conference & Expo 2022: People-Centric Digital Transformation as a Key Focus

on September 07, 2022

The 2022 HR Technology Conference and Exposition is only a week away in Las Vegas. The track of sessions that caught our eye is the one on Digital Transformation and its focus on people-centric design. MeBeBot is excited to be returning to the HR Tech Conference as we will be announcing innovative new product features and a new product module, focused on elevating the employee experience.

Research reveals that while over 90 percent of organizations are implementing digital transformation, over 70 percent of companies report that their efforts are falling short of goals. Why is that? Many speakers for the Digital Transformation track provide answers and solutions.

If there is a theme for the Digital Transformation track, it’s that people-centric digital transformation needs to be the central focus. Here are some highlights:

PwC: People-First Approach to Digital Transformation

PwC. Diane Youden, Principal, HR Transformation for PwC, observes that emerging digital technologies are the engine of enterprise change. Technology alone is not enough. She asks, “what are you doing to fuel your organization?” While rapid change requires technology, it also requires a capable workforce to keep pace.

PwC suggests that organizations understand the importance of workforce health by gaining insight into what’s important to their workers and creating meaningful, tailored action plans for an effective workforce transformation. To improve the employee experience during digital transformation by maintaining consistent communication, creating opportunities to cultivate employee skills and careers, and being transparent.

Unum: People-Centered Benefits: How Tech has Transformed the Benefits Experience

Unum’s breakout session is about people-centered benefits and how tech has transformed the benefits experience.  Employee expectations have fundamentally shifted. The pandemic has laid bare the previously hidden burdens of childcare, elder, and self-care, increasing worker demand for benefits like paid leave and behavioral health. But these benefits can no longer be siloed: they must be intuitively accessible in the daily flow of work. Unum leaders will discuss how investments in technology can help humanize the benefits experience and ensure employees feel supported through major milestones and unexpected challenges.

Paychex: How HR Tech Can Help Avoid A Great HR Resignation

Based on its research, Paychex believes we’re on the fringe of a Great HR Resignation. For more than two years, HR professionals have played a critical role in how businesses responded to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Managing layoffs and furloughs, overseeing distributed workforces made up of remote, hybrid, and on-site employees, and creating a compliant and safe workplace with complex regulations, all while recruiting and retaining during The Great Resignation.

HR professionals are navigating uncharted roles and new responsibilities—often with under-resourced teams. Seven in 10 HR leaders said that 2021 was one of the most challenging years in their career and 98% of HR leaders report that the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed their role.

We can be people-centric with our HR teams. Organizations need to properly support the needs of today’s HR professionals, or they will face a surge of resignations from the people tasked with overseeing the lifeblood of a business—its people. HR technology is the cornerstone of future success for the HR industry as it can help alleviate the challenges that come with the new responsibilities of today’s HR professionals by optimizing existing workflows to drive efficiency and avoid burnout within your HR team.

MeBeBot’s AI-driven chatbot allows organizations to be people-centric, by reducing the number of repeated questions that HR, IT, and Facilities teams manually answer from the workforce, freeing them up for the strategic work to enable your business to grow profitably. Our customers tell us that the number of questions that come to the various help desks, group emails, or individual team members has fallen by 75 percent after launching MeBeBot, alleviating stress and shifting time toward tasks that move the business forward.  Additionally, by using push messaging and pulse surveys (sent via Slack or Teams), internal communications and employee engagement are digitally transformed to be in the “flow of work,” to support distributed and global teams, anytime from anywhere.

The Finance team likes the savings of $250k to $1M often in the first six months and the handsome return on investment and a quick time to value.
