SINGAPORE: Senior Minister of State for Manpower Zaqy Mohamad said technology adoption and digitalisation will allow HR to become more productive through automation.
The use of data and analytics will also enhance organisational and employee decisions, the minister told Mercer's Singapore Health Forum.
He noted that to help businesses pave the way forward, the Institute for Human Resource Professionals has launched two additions to its set of Human Capital Playbooks: the Work Transformation Playbook and the Digital Transformation Playbook.
The first playbook gives five guided steps to help businesses assess the impact of Covid-19 and the external environment on business strategy, workflow, and the workforce.
The second one will guide businesses to address their digital adoption challenges and determine the infrastructure considerations, skills and mindset necessary for a successful digital transformation journey.
