企業培育人資需科技配合

【本報消息】澳門美國商會昨舉行主題為“擁抱數碼之旅”午餐會。該會秘書長、常務理事陳偉麟表示,澳門人力資源不足,很多公司重視人資數量,“夠唔夠人返工”,但欠缺策略培育人力資源,尤其涉及大量資訊要持續跟蹤,需要科技配合。

午餐會昨下午一時半假永利澳門舉行。環球戰略與創新領導代表羅伯 • 斯科特(Rob Scott)及Success Factors聯合創辦人/首席科技總裁區巒作主講嘉賓,分享邁向數碼世界中取得成功是很大的挑戰,數碼新世代刺激經濟增長,促使整個世界重新考慮應如何安排工作及設定新期望。

陳偉麟表示,澳門人資問題嚴重不足,很多範疇其實可以做得更好。澳門發展世界旅遊休閒中心方向,需要高質素人才。會上有嘉賓提到可利用科技培訓,如酒店業教導員工執房,可錄製短片讓員工下載,讓培訓過程有條不紊;又如員工年度檢討,傳統是檢視員工是否按目標完成,但是否有根據檢討表釐訂可以培訓、嘉許的員工,很多公司無掛鈎制機。由於人力資源系統控制每日變化中的工序,如人員流動,要追上改變需要靠科技。

區巒建議加強利用科技在人力資源管理上,但如何切入則要由公司管理者決定是否有此需要。陳偉麟表示,社會發展需要不同人才,需要清晰的法規配套,以及平衡居民與外僱共處一地,政府是否有措施讓外僱融入社會亦十分重要。

EXPERTS | HR ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD EMBRACE DIGITAL NETWORKS TO IMPROVE EFFICIENCY  Lynzy Valles | 19/10/2016 | in MACAU

Industrial revolutions have made mass production possible and have brought digital capabilities to people around the globe. Yet such revolutions also mean that the masses are likely to face both great risks and opportunities.

In a business luncheon hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce on Monday at Wynn Macau, the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ book was discussed, highlighting that emerging technology trends are shaping the digital market.

In today’s world, generations have the capability to connect with more people through digital networks, which has dramatically improved the efficiency of organizations.

One of the speakers, Rob Scott, a top executive at the consultancy company Presence of IT, expressed his concern that some organizations may be unable to adapt to these fast-paced changes and may fail to regulate new technologies in order to capture their benefits.

Citing the book, Scott said that the world is facing a range of new technologies that combine the “physical, digital and biological worlds,” which could make an impact on all economies and industries.

He remarked that the evidence of dramatic change is obvious and it is happening at an exponential speed, and thus these changes are coinciding with the emergence of a new workforce that is diverse, demanding and mobile.

“The way we manage, lead, collaborate and organize ourselves is undergoing radical change,” said Scott. “Succeeding in today’s digital world is a challenge that can not be solved simply by consuming more and more technology, or, as some fear, replacing humans with technology.”

In terms of the global digital economy, growth is driven by the ‘Digital Native’ generation, who are demanding a world fashioned to its needs and expectations about how work should be organized.

According to him, the younger generations are demanding technology to work in a particular way, such as Facebook and Weibo, to enable them to do a better job, and give them the power to achieve great outcomes.

However some organizations are unwilling to adapt to the use of these new technologies, and may fail to regulate such technologies properly.

Scott explained to the Times that if organizations do not take part in these radical, cultural and leadership changes, organizations will be “left behind.”

“If you don’t move into this new direction of transforming organization into a digital space, you’re going to be left behind. People want to work for organizations that are thinking ahead, that are using technologies,” he explained.

The consultant said that one of the biggest challenges in the HR industry in Macau is keeping its employees in the industry as the market continues to expand.

“Contingent workforce is a big thing in this region. How are you going to better manage contingent workforces to make sure they are the right person at the right cost?” Scott questioned.

Managing director of TalentGroup Asia, Alan Chan, told the Times that the pace of utilizing technology in the region’s human resources departments has been “very slow.”

“We should encourage the use of technology in the HR space whereby all these systems can tightly integrate with each other to bring a seamless HR corporation space into the hospitality world,” he explained.

He also hinted that numerous companies in the past years have been focusing on meeting the quantity requirements on employees rather than focusing on the quality of the talent.
