The Great Resignation created unprecedented labor shortages, with the food service, retail, and healthcare industries being hit especially hard.
This has created significant challenges for human resources (HR) organizations, forcing them to rethink their platforms and processes in pursuit of a more seamless onboarding experience with better candidate retention. Key business problems in these areas are ideally suited to low-code innovation, with the potential to optimize processes and transform the employee experience, often without getting IT development teams involved.
Faced with the challenges of the Great Resignation, can you afford not to empower your HR organization with low-code development opportunities?
You obviously can’t afford not to empower your team, but you also can’t afford to just leap into low-code opportunities without your team understanding what they are doing and why.
When carefully and purposefully implemented, low-code tools and platforms can transform the employee experience by enabling HR organizations to rapidly innovate solution development.
For example, when a national energy infrastructure company was trying to navigate the Great Resignation, it discovered that it was hiring people who never completed onboarding and never showed up on the first day. The company wanted to enable better tracking of 30, 60, and 90-day milestone interactions, but struggled with legacy HR applications that were hard to support and unable to operate in certain technical environments.
The approach it took to ensuring low-code success followed four key steps, all of which are crucial for any company interested in pursuing similar innovations:
As an output of their low-code transformation, the energy infrastructure company mentioned above was able to immediately automate 15 processes (and has since automated 20 more), with power applications and drag-and-drop wizards that allow its HR organization to point at a data source and create new applications in just minutes.
Every company faces recruitment and retention challenges—the Great Resignation has just amplified them. As a result, most would love to automate their HR world, but few are ready to tackle a low-code transformation on their own.
