Why local HR industry must digitalize amid employment recovery
Managing job application data can be tedious, from the recruitment process to onboarding employees, especially if done manually. As the Philippine economy further reopens, the local human resources (HR) sector should upgrade people processes to achieve productivity gains.
The unemployment rate dropped to 6% in May of this year, lower than the 7.7% recorded in the same period in 2021, data from the Philippine Statistics Authority showed.
Just in May alone, new entrants to the workforce reached 1.216 million. This, as the previous administration allowed more sectors to operate at either higher or full capacity.
Security Bank Corp. Chief Economist Robert Dan J. Roces said in a previous report that more Filipinos would enter the labor market following the easing of COVID restrictions, allowing the country to hit its pre-pandemic unemployment rate.
During his first State of the Nation Address late in July, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. vowed the Philippines would do away with tougher lockdowns as they targeted to make all establishments run at full-blown.
With the expected recovery in employment, the HR industry must also rethink how it handles the workforce.
For those organizations that have yet to embrace automated tools to assure effective delivery of HR services, personnel involved still have to deal with mounting physical documents for record keeping. This not only consumes much of employees’ time but is also prone to the risk of possible loss or damage.
Deciding to automate step-by-step processes can save workers’ time and deliver the best human capital decision for the company.
