The ongoing pandemic has taken a toll on economies across the globe and the standstill seems to be rather longer than what we were expecting with no end at sight and the WHO confirming we might have to live with the virus for some time now. While all are confident things will return to normalcy but some organizations in the E-Commerce, Logistics, E-Services have taken upon themselves to do something about it with their demands ever-increasing with each passing day they seem to have transformed further digitally to ensure there are no brakes in their operations during this gloom.
This looks to be the New World Order Digital Transformation along with upskilling your workforce working remotely enabling many possibilities. While millions are working from home, technology has in fact taken over our lives in a way very few predicted and even fewer for the year 2020. During these times of survival and staying along the growth curve human resources would play a pivotal role in ensuring they attract the right talent to organizations.
Today our heroes are the front-line health workers, law enforcement agencies and sanitation workers but when this ensuing battle against the unknown ends the world would need a hero to bring back pace to its economies to bring back certainty among the working class to bring back trust in the Investors to bring back hope in humankind and that space is going to be filled by human resources since they are the people who make the company and the work culture in it. While experts predicted AI taking over human resources this ongoing lock-down has proved that recruitment does need a human touch it.
Human resources as we know aren’t just people who work in corporates doing white-collar job hiring or people organizing birthday parties and decorating their desks they are also the people who bring the labor force into action in various industries ranging from Manufacturing to Infrastructure developments etc. who we call as Field Officers or Contractors on Field.
With the guest workers across the country facing the wrath of Covid-19 and returning to the hinterland it will be the Human Resources department which would bring people back to the Industries companies and Assembling Plants. It could be safely assumed that the HR department would eventually bring the ailing world back to its feet once this pandemic comes to an end with finding the right resources for every job available and whenever the need arises.
A company’s success is completely credited to the people working behind it and it is every CEO’s priority concern that Talent Acquisition development and Retention is taken care of and they have lost a lot in this ensuing battle and they would be very determined to draw first blood and attract the best talent to their organizations even if working remotely.
