The disruption caused by technology in an ever-shrinking globalized world has created a technological ecosystem where it becomes imperative to have social HRMS tools for effective collaboration and engagement. A well designed and thought out HRMS system enhances productivity and increases efficiency, subsequently leading to an increase in return on investments, higher profit margin and overall growth of an organization.
Traditional HR systems for training and development had very less exposure to collaborative activities. The social learning platforms have become an integral extension of learning management systems and have become a breeding ground for discussion, interaction and value creation. Some of the best employee brainstorming results come via the discussions from the informal meeting settings. Social HRMS collaborative platforms like Workplace by Facebook and Yammer are a case in point which facilitate effective peer to peer collaboration.
The social HRMS tools and their integration with mobile platforms allow employees to be abreast with updates on the company’s latest acquisitions and product lines on the go. It can also act as a medium for product owners and stakeholders to broadcast any impending changes in the organizational structure, resulting in the transparency of operations with the staff.
It’s a proven fact that the knowledge gained via social learning leaves an indelible impression to compare to the traditional in silo methods. Social workforce computing platforms like NewsGator supports social learning by integrating with Microsoft SharePoint, and by providing API’s (Application Programming Interface) to import and export data with other systems. It allows employees to create their own communities and activity streams based on their interest and job profile.
A social HRMS is a peculiar way to bring together employees in a non-intrusive and non-threatening environment. Employees should be encouraged to use social HRMS tools, as a precursor to starting a new project. The new project team members can connect through social HRMS tools and get to know about their team before the project formally kicks in.
So, as we see the integration of social HRMS tools, is essential for transparent communication in real-time, not predicated by hierarchical divisions across the business verticals. It creates an ecosystem of live social collaboration and learning, a breeding ground for clever solutions through informal connections.
