HR Professional 2.0 – How to Sharpen Your Team’s Skills

December 07 2020

As 2020 draws to a close and we enter the holiday season – you and your team deserve a pat on the back for successfully managing to keep the ship afloat during a challenging time that was unlike anything we’ve experienced before.


You’ve pushed through challenges like layoffs, re-evaluation of work policies, and resource planning (to meet the changing market requirements).


As you move into a new year, it is worth taking this time to reflect on the current skills of your team and see how you can help them expand their skills to meet the business’s future requirements.


This includes helping them enhance analytical thinking, develop diversity and cultural intelligence, and most importantly learn to embrace change.


Invest in Training – Especially When it Comes to Technology


As we move towards digitization and automation, particularly after COVID-19, it is critical to invest in the training and development of your team.


Providing them training to use modern technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not only beneficial for your organization but also helpful for their professional growth.


AI is the future – PWC expects AI to contribute up to $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030!


Leveraging AI will help your team free up the time they spend on administrative tasks to focus on more important activities, help them streamline different processes, and enable them to effectively measure the human resource campaigns in place.


Provide Online Tools


Just as your team needs to learn about technology when it comes to human resources, they also need access to best-in-class tools. Today, there are multiple tools available in the market that are designed to facilitate different facets of the human resource function.


For instance, when it comes to recruitment, an end-to-end recruiting software can help your team expedite and simplify the hiring process – from sourcing and managing candidate applications to hiring and evaluating campaign success.


Give Access to Online Background Checks


Background checks can help your team make smarter hiring decisions and save costs both in the short- and long-run. You can integrate pre-employment background checks into your current Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to help your team make better hires in 2021.


At Triton, our background check solutions, have helped many businesses improve their employee recruitment process and company culture.


Access these case studies to see how human resources managers have benefited from incorporating Triton background checks into their HR processes.
