Human resource management is undergoing a lot of improvements and enhancements. This is due to the fact that there are trends that have been enhanced with the capabilities that are set by the big data. This capability is enabled with the availability of information from the many interconnections that come with big data and data analytics. This paper will focus on how meshing of data will improve the availability of information in the human resource field to enhance the connectivity of the data (Rothwell, Prescott, & Taylor, 1998).
Improve workflow policies through meshing of data
Information flow is growing at a much faster rate with the use of the internet. This is possible with the development of websites that are used for various purposes. With the growth of sites that are used to link job-related searches on the internet, they form a source of intelligence information that are required to solve most of the issues of the human resource field. The human resource can be able to get information that can be used to understand the insights and the trends that are going in the human resource. There are sites that require job seekers to enter their details so that they will be linked with the prospective employment opportunities. These sites have data which can be used to gain insights and trend which is being used in the human resource field. Human resource filed can link with these sites in the form of partnership so as to give vacancies when they arise. The human resource will benefit in that they will be able to get access to the big data these sites keep. This will be a source of information that will be used to understand the trends that are available in the human resource field. This will enhance the development and the trends that are used in the field of human resource management.
Another way in which the human resource can be enhanced is through the use of connections and the data in professional bodies. This is where professionals share information about the trends that are going place in the places where these professionals work. This is an area that human resource can get the insights of what is taking place in the human resource field. This is because the databases of these professional bodies contain data that is used to get the insights and the discussion on the recent practices that are being undertaken in the human resource field. Professionals keep in touch with one another and will discuss the trends of the fields that they are working. As these people will discuss the issues and trends in their field of work, they will form a source of insider information that is useful for human resource. This is an area that the human resource can exploit to understand what is taking place in the human resource field. This will be useful in order to understand the requirements and what needs to be improved in the field of human resource. With this, the human resource will not remain in isolation. This is an important development and is another source of getting data that will be meshed together to get valuable information. This can be connected also to universities and schools of management. The current trends that are experienced in the human resource field are developed in the universities and the schools of management. One way in which this knowledge can be tapped by the human resource management departments is by having a partnership with the schools in order to share the knowledge with the human resource. This knowledge will be used in the management of the policies and the development of the procedures that need to be followed in the human resource field (Ruona, Lynham, & Chermack, 2003).
There are government agencies which are tasked with reviewing the working conditions of the public service. This is another source where the human resource can benchmark the recruitment and remuneration process. The agencies have the policies and the requirements that are required for working in various fields. These agencies are a big source of big data for most of the issues and requirements that should be followed for the human resource field. This will enhance the developments and the coordination of the various human resource aspects of the human resource management. The meshing of data from government agencies that deal with human resource management is a source of information that will enhance the developments of the human resource management. This is an important development that will improve the policies that are developed in the human resource management (Ulrich, 2013).
Information systems that are used in organizations are another area that is becoming an important development of the human resource. This is because of the fact that the human resource management can have information system that will take the concerns of the staff. The human resource modules are seen to be the source of information for the human resource. With the use of customized systems that are able to get feeds from the social sites, this will improve the source of information from these fields. It is important to understand the role that these sites will have in the development of these fields. Government agencies undertake different researches that will be used in the government and private institutions to enhance the human resource procedures and functions. This will be the source of information regarding the functioning of the different human resource procedures and the human resource in the government.
There is the increase in the use of Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) systems. This is an important component that is seen to bring the changes that will improve the human resource function. There are ERP systems that are distributed and web-based. This feature will enable the systems to be connected with other systems and source of trends and news. This is improving the way information is being shared and used. These systems will be a source of information if they are shared with the other organizations which have the same interests. This will allow the use of baselining in this process.
With the use of current information systems trends, it is possible to improve on pertinent human resource policies in order to improve the developments in the human resource management. It is important to understand the fact that the information systems and the development of the big data aspect is proving to be an important factoring the improvement of human resource policy development and enhancement. The use of the connectivity of systems and the collaborations that can be created with different organization is the source of competitive advantage of many organizations. This is what will take the human resource to the next generation.
