Why 2022 is the Year of People Management Evolution

As the role of HR continues to expand in scope and complexity, Martin Eade explains why the systems and technology supporting people professionals also need to evolve

Martin Eade, Vice President of Human Capital Management (HCM) at Advanced - the UK’s third largest provider of business software and services - believes that the HCM space is undergoing a fundamental transformation. With organisations and workforces alike having been through a great deal of change in recent years, the role of HR professionals is now expanding in scope and complexity. The systems and technology which support them must also evolve and nowhere is this more important than when looking at how organisations manage their people.
"One of the key challenges for organisations in 2022 will be how to effectively deal with the HCM demands of the new working world without relegating their HR teams to a mostly admin function.
We’ve all had to get to grips with hybrid working and what that means to us as individuals as well as our businesses. We’ve had to relearn how to stay connected and engaged with our colleagues when, at times, we’ve never been further apart.
The focus for businesses needs to be on how to create an employee experience which is engaging, empathetic and universal, regardless of where their people choose to work from. The systems and technology leveraged by their people teams will play a huge part in achieving this.
At Advanced, we understand the nature of the evolution required, which is why we’ve created a comprehensive suite of solutions to help organisations transform their people experience for the better. We’ve brought together influential names, such as Clear Review, to enable us to create a comprehensive suite of solutions. These are designed specifically to support businesses tackling the HCM challenges that the new working world has introduced and to allow businesses to remain connected with their people.
We continue to innovate, and are also introducing MyWorkplace which brings together your business systems in one, unified platform. Every user will have the opportunity to personalise their own desktop, making access to everyday applications simple and secure.
Our solutions reflect the ways in which the modern working culture has transformed in recent years. If you’d like to learn more about how Advanced is preparing for the evolution of HCM and the wider working world in 2022, please get in touch today.”
