“United we stand, divided we fall” –This famous saying will hint you the essence of this blog. We can do much more or better if it is ‘us’ instead of ‘me’. Don’t you agree? So why not apply it to a firm! Here are the pros of bringing your IT and HR department under the same platform. So, how does the IT department contribute to employee engagement? Moreover, why just IT? Because, it ensures proper functioning of intranet – a platform through which employees communicate with each other.
So, isn’t it worth bringing your IT people along with the HR to enhance employee engagement practices? Given below are some benefits of the IT-HR duo:
- A new derived team
Making IT and HR department work closely will eventually give birth to a completely new team with improved objectives, derived of individual concerns of both the team. A well-structured team with proper data flow between employees is a concern. An HR’s duty includes bringing talented and skilled members to create a team. Whereas, the IT team’s duty is to ensure easy and secure communication within the team. Hence, this new team with unified objectives of creating more coordinated teams with data under the same platform is the first benefit.
- Unified technological investments
Beyond employee-based benefits, budget for technological adoptions will get affected as well. For example, the HR department needs a software, which can take care of attendance monitoring, payroll operations, etc. inviting the need to invest in HR tools. Whereas, an IT department with high volumes of crucial information requires data-security, which also demands a separate investment shaking your entire budget. Perhaps, a nexus of both the departments eliminate such unwanted investment costs because investments like a cloud – based HRMS software serves both and therefore IT and HR working together is a success.
- Bringing Tech & People together
Haven’t you noticed the inclination of successful companies towards technology? Bringing people together with technology is all that it takes to start with efficient practices in improving the employee experience. As discussed earlier, a system like HRMS is one of these initiatives. It keeps an employee on its top priority list and delivers amazing user – experience. The collaboration and bond it provides between every individual and department are what millennials prefer among all.
