Through a series of expert conversations, the #Reboot Work Week brought to experts to bring together a roadmap with ideas and solutions to navigate an uncertain future.
Mapping employee health and safety priorities for 2021
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 several steps to improve health and safety, there’s a need to re-look at several 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 discussed 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.
