Technology is changing the way Human Resources departments carry out their work.
This can include the way they contact employees, store files and analyze employee performance.
Speaking at the Fiji HR Institute Awards in Suva last night, International Labour Organisation Director in Fiji, Donglin Li says technology makes HR practices more efficient.
However, Li says that technology if used poorly, can also get in the way of managing a company’s human resources.
“As the world transitions into the digital age and the future work – human resources development, skills, training, apprenticeship and vocational systems need constant improvements and up skill. Sure technological advances such as artificial intelligence, automation and robotics will create new jobs but the employee will lose their jobs in this transition may be the least equipped to seize new opportunities.”
Meanwhile, several awards were handed out last night.
The HR Executive award of the year was scooped up by Mereoni Gusuivalu from SOFTEL and Seema Kumar from Roster Poultry received the HR Practitioner award.
Paradise Beverages Maivon Wahid walked away with the HR Manager award and Farihah Bi from Energy Fiji Limited won the HR Rising star of the year award.
