A human resource (HR) transformation strategy is the process of rethinking and reforming the HR function in an organisation. It is focused on implementing change that strategically improves recruitment, training, performance, review, compensation, and progression planning.

Digitalisation involves adopting technology that allows people to work in a way they never have before. For example, in HR, this means adding value through cloud technologies that give end-users the tools to work remotely, allowing them to process expenses, claims, leave requests and more – from any device, anytime, anywhere.

HR can and should be used to drive initiatives throughout your organisation. Digital transformation is more than just technology, it is about people and culture. HR can be used to support your digital transformation strategy from recruitment and development to values and team collaboration.
