Fremont, CA: Workforce transformation is the process of upgrading a company's workforce's skills, tools, and competencies to stay up with changing business strategies. The four categories of workforce transformation imperatives include innovation readiness, increasing competitive status, environmental impact, and employee self-fulfillment.
COVID-19 has accelerated workforce transformation, resulting from the next industrial revolution, fuelled by cloud, mobility, and a demand for more automated, data-driven insights. However, it has put even more burden on the workforce since new skills are in high demand and unemployment for knowledge workers is at historic lows.
Importance of Workforce Transformation
Workforce transformation gets linked to the productivity gains needed in both the private and public sectors, and the challenges posed by workplace transformation as a result of the pandemic have an impact on the workforce on how they work, from where they work, and what tools they use to interact with their employers.
Many businesses struggle to find the talent they require, many of which are critical to workforce transformation. Instead of recruiting, many companies are upskilling existing personnel to meet the company's evolving demands. Longer-term, businesses must rethink how their workforce functions and rework their workflows to capitalize on existing workforce capabilities while attracting new personnel.
Advantages of Workforce Transformation
Workforce transformation is a catalyst for creativity, agility, and flexibility in an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce, changing when, how, and where work is complete. IT businesses must prepare for the influx of new generations that demand seamless onboarding, simple collaboration, and rich communication.
Flexible remote work alternatives are known as pre-requisites for many in today's modern workforce. However, there are some apparent advantages to allowing workers to work from home or locations other than the central workplace.
Through these tools, employees learn about the firm and get to know their coworkers. As a result, it's critical to ensure that the employee's experience with these technologies supports and develops their engagement, which is essential to their productivity and work happiness. In addition, to guarantee a pleasant employee experience, it is critical to delivering a simplified, uniform experience across devices.
Organizations aiming toward this transformation may provide a richer user experience by providing employees with a more consumer-like environment for accessing business apps and data. In addition, it allows employees to be more engaged and focused on the job at hand. Employees, for example, are continuing to abandon traditional work desk phones in favor of mobile devices and apps like Zoom or WhatsApp, which reduce the need for landlines – even IP landlines.
