If there’s one organizational pillar that companies are going to strive towards, it is to maintain employee health and safety. 2020 was the most stressful year ever as many employees worked from home – coupled with the anxiety of the virus; they also worked longer hours at the risk of burnout. As the pandemic raged, 78 percent of the workforce said that it negatively affected their mental health, according to Oracle’s AI at Work Study.
While companies are already engaged in a number of steps to improve health and safety, there’s a need to re-look at a number of monitoring and aligning processes – from leveraging wearables, tracking mental health and enabling traceability without liability and data privacy issues, HR teams should handhold employees.
In this deep-dive podcast, Shaakun Khanna, Head of Human Capital Management Applications, Asia Pacific, Oracle Corporation and Yasmin Taj, Managing Editor, People Matters, discuss use cases of how technology is transforming the conversations on health and safety and how it is freeing up HR to focus on critical human connections.
Here’s what this discussion covers:
- Why is health and safety at the heart of a new workplace?
- How is technology transforming the conversations on improving health and safety practices at the workplace?
- What should you do apart from building awareness and giving access to resources?
- Use cases from leveraging automated tracking systems and processes.
