ti people logoCustomer Experience of HR – a new paradigm for digital HR transformation
TI People is a specialized provider that helps companies to digitally transform HR for unparalleled customer experience.
The two drivers of digital HR transformation will be (1) digitally enabled employee centricity and (2) workforce analytics. The employee centricity approach is adopted from consumer marketing: HR services will be (re-) designed and managed to deliver a positive ‘Customer Experience’ of HR. Workforce analytics enables to take fact-based – and therefore better – people decisions. This is a major paradigm shift: Earlier HR transformations were driven by process streamlining and, ultimately, economies of scale. But they neglected increasing work effectiveness and value creation.
