Government agencies are typically slow to adapt to change - but they operate in the same world as commercial industry. The expectations of today’s multi-generational, multi-cultural workforce, alongside the blistering pace of technological innovation mean the public sector must discover a fairly rapid path to digital transformation or risk nothing less than the capability to deliver critical citizen services. Nowhere is this felt more keenly than in Human Resources, which bears the responsibility for the living, breathing heart of every entity’s success – it’s employees. Running basic (though critical) HR logistics like Benefits and Payroll in an on-premise HRIS is no longer enough. The complete employee lifecycle – from acquisition to onboarding, through engagement, development, career management, retirement and successor management – must be managed closely and carefully to ensure the public service remains competently staffed. That degree of control and access requires a digital HR strategy, and the most successful orgs will make it as automatic and intuitive as the technology employees use to manage their daily lives and personal interactions.
