If you were on the fence about updating your employee experience before 2020, you may be re-thinking your wait-and-see approach. Companies that have leaders who are willing to take calculated risks, who understand change management and who see the need to improve their employee experience are hiring, retaining and improving how people do work for their company at all stages.
Make HR an Experience not a Transaction
Human Resource (HR) Transformation starts with defining what HR is to your company. Is it a series of third-party vendors? Is it a role that focuses on the psychology of the org? What you think HR is will define where you think HR can go.
Most people misunderstand just exactly what HR Transformation is.
HR Transformation at pepelwerk means the updating of how you hire, manage/train and separate from employees using technology, process and organizational design for the Future of Work.

What kind of companies benefit from a digital employee experience?
All companies. It’s really a matter of choosing the right tool for the size of your company and how you get work done. With all-in-one technology solutions like pepelwerk, companies no longer have to band-aid together technology or come up with innovation on their own.
Gone are the days of do-it-yourself HR technology. Enterprise and Small Business a-like realize that it's easier to move away from legacy software platforms than ever before. It's critical to choose software that can evolve with business and that has a cost to the organization based on utilization. No one wants hefty implementation fees and long implementation cycles that rob the business of revenue-producing activities.
Why create a digital employee experience?
The real question is why not? Especially when you don’t have to recreate the wheel. At pepelwerk, we've done a lot to enhance the employee experience by putting the Talent first. Systems and going digital should not distract HR and business leaders from the focus of their business and their people. Only you can create the culture and take care of people in a way that systems and software cannot.
The employee experience is defined as the journey an employee takes to complete every transaction and interaction they have with the company. Simply put, it's giving the people that do work for you access to what they need when they need it.
The important thing to remember that often gets overlooked is, the best employee experiences are a combination of digital and human interactions. Especially when working with the next generation of Talent entering the workforce.
The Stages Of The Employee (Talent) Experience
Between 1970 and up until about 2010 the employee journey was limited to-well, being an employee. Human resources was administrative, a transaction and was looked at by employees as something similar to going to the principal office. So, first-generation HRMS, HRIS software and even early generations SASS platforms were built with the same thinking in mind.
The company only thought about you once you were on their payroll. Even then you were dwindled down to a payroll process or enrolling in health insurance.
The old school employee journey: hire-pay-fire
In 2010 companies realized that employees are people and more importantly that people have more choices in how, who and what they do to earn a living. The battle for Talent is no longer just about top pay or competitive employee benefits, it's about demonstrating to people that you are a company WORTH working for.
The new employee experience:
Pre-Hire > Hire > Onboard > Develop-Sustain > Separate
