There is no doubt that HR technology has transformed the roles of HR professionals today. Long gone are the administrative HR paperwork. Instead, these have been replaced by software platforms or even cloud-based platforms that are able to handle thousands of employees' data and incorporate multiple HR processes such as time attendance and payroll all on one platform.

With the rapid advancements in HR technology today, various HR platforms have begun to partner or even merge with each other to reach a wider HR audience. This indicates an attempt by these HR software platforms to further streamline HR processes and free up the time of HR professionals. This will allow them to place more focus on the employees and come up with people strategies rather that spend time resolving day-to-day HR issues that can be easily handled by a HR software platform.

Such example would be the partnership between Human Capital Management platform, Workday and work chat platform, Slack. According to Workday, this partnership will allow each platform to bring together their individual expertise and reach out to employees. Additionally, Slack has added that this partnership will provide employees with more interactive features such as requesting for time-off, real-time peer feedback and customised notifications.

Here is what companies can look forward to with this partnership.

Based on research from Willis Towers Watsons’ Global Medical Trends Survey 2018, “Singapore’s medical inflation has increased from 7.6% to 9.2% in the past two years.” It is no wonder that employers have come with strategies to empower employees to take charge of their own health through various preventative initiatives and wellness programmes to encourage a healthy lifestyle amongst employees.
