Recruitment and onboarding technologies are making headway in the post-COVID business world.
By Simon Kent
As time passes, it is becoming increasingly apparent which areas of HR will remain transformed by the technology that was introduced to cope with the challenges of the global pandemic. Whilst HR as a whole has been impacted by the experience, the front end of candidate recruitment and management is a prime area where new practices could stick.
Effective data collection, storage, and analysis is critical to future business success.

As the pandemic took hold of workplaces across EMEA, organisations found it necessary to shift every aspect of their business online. HR was among the departments where data had to be digitised, ensuring people information was accessible to all who needed it. The move to digital has emphasised two connected learning points for businesses:
Providing essential workers with reliable tools and personalized guidance around COVID-19 ensures safety while deepening employee engagement.

Washington Trust Bank (WTB) is known for its commitment to employees and clients in the Northwestern U.S. When COVID-19 first registered in Washington State, it was clear that the HR team had to act quickly to figure out the scope of the issue, what impact it could have on the community, and what they needed to do.
Game-based assessments add interaction and engagement to virtual hiring practices.
By Larry Nash
All facets of business have been disrupted in the past year, including the way organizations source, attract, assess, and hire future-focused talent. Companies pivoted to a virtual work environment, forcing recruiters to quickly shift hiring strategies to continue fostering connections with and securing top candidates. Now, as organizations continue to operate amid uncertainty and look to return to in-person interactions in the future, talent acquisition teams can modernize the hiring process by incorporating innovative technologies and tools like game-based assessments.
An impressive 127 announcements were made in Q4 of 2020 alone – with learning and upskilling products at the forefront of HR technology this quarter.
Technology announcements that addressed mobility or working in a virtual environment were also frequent, and closely related to that were the many citations revealing solutions for increased employee engagement.

Four CEOs share their vision for the future of employee rewards and recognition.
By Elliot Clark
As I wrote this feature article on the rewards and recognition portion of the HR services and technology industry, I was reminded of a college seminar I took on geology and ecology. I remember the professor talking about change and comparing the terraforming effects of glaciers that move, well, glacially, to volcanos that make change happen violently. The COVID-19 pandemic is the metaphorical volcano in the world of HR policy. I wonder what the outcome would have been if organizations had gradually adopted a more flexible approach to remote working instead of the violent upheaval caused by COVID-19 that continues to the start of this new year.
