At Lizard Global, we imagine, design, create, and grow digital solutions for businesses from a wide range of industries. From maritime and industry 4.0 to healthcare and community, we think that any business in any industry can benefit from a digital transformation. This week, we dive into another one of our verticals: Human Resources. We give you an insight into the versatile industry of HR and the successful projects we’ve been working on so far.
Human Resources in digital transformation
The industry of Human Resources is in the middle of a significant transformation towards process automation and digitization. Technological innovations are here to facilitate many procedures we used to do manually. The arrival of digital solutions that facilitate proceedings such as on-boarding, off-boarding, payrolling, and much more, has accelerated the movement towards agile ways of working. So-called Robotic Process Automation is being implemented to let robots interact with User Interfaces, in the same way humans did in the past. RPA is especially useful for repetitive tasks that normally require much time if done manually. The recruitment of new employees by means of RPA and digital recruitment systems is a perfect example of the benefits of technology in HR, and here’s why.
Digital Recruitment & the future of Talent Acquisition
Finding a new employee for your job vacancy can be a tedious task, especially when you’re faced with either a lot of applicants or none at all. And as a job seeker, it can be difficult to find a job that fits the complete package of your skillset, interests, ambitions, and character, without being judged on qualities like gender, origin, or race. Digital Recruitment Systems can be an efficient solution for these recurring issues and can facilitate the process of getting into contact with a fitting employer or job seeker while taking that task from the hands of HR. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits Digital Recruitment Systems offer:
- Because digital recruitment systems are mostly automated, the process of searching, applying and onboarding are much more efficient than when done manually.
- Employers can digitally assess whether a candidate meets the requirements of the position and can easily filter on the right skills for a job.
- Job seekers can filter their searches and find jobs that are tailored to their interests and skill set, which facilitates the process of finding a fitting job.
- Digital Recruitment Systems tend to be less prejudiced and biased regarding someone’s background or ethnicity. The focus lies solely on skills, interests, and ambitions.
- Because most of the onboarding process happens online, a lot of time and effort is saved for both job seekers and employers. This makes the entire process of job/talent acquisition much more Agile.
- Less travelling to physical meetings and job interviews means fewer traffic jams and less CO2 emissions, which makes Digital Recruitment a more sustainable and environment-friendly solution.
PeopleHive is a consultancy company based in Malaysia, aimed at creating a Strategic Corporate Culture Fit within organisations. They do so by collaborating with organisations’ key stakeholders to find corporate cultural values closest to the foundation, strategy, and goals of the organisation. Together with The PeopleHive, Lizard Global designed a mobile application that has the purpose of assessing cultural alignment within organisations based on their competencies, norms, and values. By sending out surveys to all employees, it is possible to indicate the extent to which the desired norms and values are present among organisational members. The in-app surveys are made in such a way that organizations can provide clear insight into the current state of the cultural alignment within the company. The experts of PeopleHive thoroughly analyze the input given by an organization and provide recommendations for improvement that are perfectly aligned with the needs of your organization.
Our partnership with PeopleHive didn’t stop after the development of the PeopleHive application. On the contrary, our collaboration proved to be so fruitful we decided to step it up a notch. Together, we created our first “home-grown” HR platform GrowTribe, which combines the power of digital innovation and high-level HR consultancy with two cutting-edge technologies: Growth tracker and Performance tracker. Check out our interview with our CEO Asia Terence and PeopleHive’s Chantal to find out how GrowTribe came to life.
While strides have been made, the current job market is still affected by gender inequalities and other prejudices. In order to create an equal and fair opportunity for all job seekers/candidates, unlocQed provides a platform on which employees and employers are brought together anonymously, based solely on job-requirement criteria like knowledge, skills, and qualities. In a world where all industries are transforming digitally, HR and digital recruitment can’t stay behind. Creating a digital platform that provides equal opportunities and chances for both job seekers and employers can facilitate the entire process from job-seeking and interviewing to onboarding, with as result a valuable and viable match.
The two-sided marketplace of unlocQed is designed and developed to help our client realize their idea of creating a unique Digital Recruitment platform for facilitating the process of job and talent acquisition, based on skills, ambitions, and interests, without any biases or prejudices. Mutual interest between job seekers and employees has a higher chance of resulting in sustainable matches and overall satisfaction in the workplace.
Together with Lizard Global, our partners at unlocQed developed a ground-breaking solution for facilitating the establishment of a successful partnership between employer and job-seeker. The two-sided marketplace for job-seekers and employers motivates its users to set up their profiles as detailed as possible in order to achieve the best possible match between both parties. In order to offer a balance between job-seekers and job vacancies, the platform is attractive and beneficial for both parties. The platform’s main focus lays on efficiency, effectiveness, and of course a pleasant experience for both employers and job-seekers.
Project: HCS Forms
HCS Forms is one of our most recently deployed HR projects. HCS partnered up with Lizard Global to create a tool that simplifies the collection and analysis of data from employees. This way, HCS analysts have constant insight into the health status of employees, and employers are better (financially) prepared in the case of sudden long-term illness among their employees. The digital platform allows HCS analysts to gather and analyze input from companies and their employees by the means of questionnaires and data insights. HCS analysts can make use of the integrated functionality to create personalized questionnaires and send them to employees. Employees receive an email notification with the request to fill in their questionnaire and answers are automatically returned for analysis.
