How data can rescue the watercooler conversation

(Source:HR news)Government restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic have suddenly – and in many cases permanently – transformed the way we work. These changes have affected every business department, but perhaps especially HR, as entire workforces switch to remote working, forcing a complete rethink of management styles and strategies, as well as overall employee engagement.

Where employees are a business’s strongest asset, making sure that staff feel heard and supported, understanding their individual circumstances, and making sure they have all the tools they need to be productive in this new world of work are of paramount importance now. Luckily, data is emerging as a strong new ally when it comes to facilitating this, allowing HR professionals to stay in tune and connected – even at a distance.
