Maturity in HR Processes = Digitization

Assessing the maturity of HR processes facilitates a critical analysis of the actual situation, using the dimensions of the proposed maturity model. Their optimization increases the operational efficiency of the company and adds value to the business. By digitizing HR processes, you can automate core workforce tasks and free up more time for strategy and growth. Digital transformation in HR helps companies become resilient and bring competitive advantage.

1. What is digital maturity in the context of HR?

Digital maturity refers to the level of technology adoption that the HR function has reached in your organization. Think of it as a combination of overall digitization and how well HR processes and administrative work have been digitized.

More importantly, however, digital maturity is a competitive advantage. For many companies, a higher level of maturity corresponds to a higher level of operational excellence or business resilience.

So it helps to think of digital maturity as both a present state and an opportunity. An opportunity to take your organization to the next level by digitizing HR and administrative processes to focus on strategic initiatives.

 

2. Is a digital maturity assessment needed?

The Covid-19 pandemic has accentuated an aspect that was already extremely important, namely the urgent need for companies to become resilient. At the same time, it also demonstrated the general importance as well as the value of digital technologies that facilitate work.

After all, your HR department may think the business is digitized, but you may still have a long way to go. Especially when it comes to truly achieving operational excellence, you may have missed solving some “blind spots” that need to be addressed.

A digital maturity assessment can help determine exactly where your organization is in a critical sense. This is because digital maturity can help you unlock many aspects that would make your organization great! And, it all starts with an understanding of the actual situation.

3. Operational excellence

The HR maturity model can be applied to several main themes such as:

  • Development of organizational culture
  • Operational / transactional excellence and strategic execution
  • Attraction and retention
  • Performance and responsibility
  • Rewards and recognition
  • People development
  • Employee welfare

Operational/transactional excellence refers to the realization of operational services and HR administration, of high added value at a low cost.

Digital transformation in the context of operational excellence is the use of digital technologies to facilitate the design and execution of basic HR processes. Basically, it means using digitization to make your day-to-day work easier, simpler, with the added benefit of being able to focus on other strategic topics.

Without it, you risk security and data quality issues, higher costs and lower quality of service.

4. Maturity model for operational excellence analysis

The analysis of operational excellence can be structured on several components:

  • Automation of transactional processes
  • HR metrics reporting
  • HR data quality
  • Managerial/HR execution and responsibilities

The qualitative analysis of the evolution of each component can be done based on the maturity levels, which we will instantiate in each case:

  • Level 1: AD-HOC
  • Level 2: BEGINNER
  • Level 3: OPERATIONAL
  • Level 4: ADAPTIVE
