While talent continues to be one of the most important corporate resources and there are strong signs of an increasing talent skills gap, it is more critical than ever to focus on employee engagement and retention. In fact, Deloitte's "Global Human Capital Trends 2016" report found that 85 percent of HR and business leaders identified engagement as a leading priority for their organizations. In response to this talent crisis, Deloitte developed ConnectMe, an integrated HR service delivery and collaboration platform designed to enhance employee engagement through digital interactions with workplace services.
ConnectMe capitalizes on a company's current technology investments by bringing disparate systems and HR teams together to provide employees a personalized, streamlined navigation to help them make intelligent choices. Many HR and IT leaders are leveraging the cloud in their organizations to improve the digital workplace, which helps employees feel more connected to their organization. ConnectMe offers a personalized desktop and mobile user experience, enabling employees to access what they need, anywhere, anytime.
"Many employers still operate in costly siloed HR environments, across disjointed systems and teams to manage payroll, benefits, recruiting and other functions," said Michael Gretczko, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, digital HR and innovation leader. "Today's workforce expects interactions with HR to be effective, simple and intuitive. ConnectMe enhances the employee experience through digital HR service delivery and helps HR leaders bring focus during this time of organizational disruption."
For chief human resources officers and their HR operations, business HR and centers-of-expertise teams, ConnectMe increases HR effectiveness, helps address employee engagement challenges, and can decrease cost by reducing transactional work and increasing collaboration.
Gretczko continued, "HR today should maximize the value of existing technology by efficiently pulling all functions together. With ConnectMe, organizations can establish a digital workplace designed around the employee that uses insights and analytics to provide predictive and personalized HR interactions."
