HRD and the evolution of teleworking

In the area of ​​human resource management, teleworking, which started on December 5th with the strikes and then generalized during detention before being adjusted, appears to have had a very strong impact on organizations. “Anyone who says that teleworking involves better organization of payroll and its implementation covers many aspects, for example how employees can be further motivated, and in management the focus is shifting to top management and middle management by then “, Notes Florence de Courtenay. The HR Solutions event also includes the Digital Workplace area, which is dedicated to intranet / extranet and CSR solutions. The HRDs used these solutions and it was necessary to train managers in good collaboration practices. Without forgetting the problems of securing remote access.

“The HR departments had an enormous workload. These are really functions that have been accelerated, even if we’ve been talking about them for years,” recalls the general manager of Infopromotions. This deconfining alone meant significant additional work for HR development. At the fair, the service part deals with questions of coaching, psychological support and of course training. “Technology has to be at the service of people, it has been said for years that we have to put people back at the center of the debates, it is even stronger now. “”
