This shift includes prioritizing employee wellbeing and recognition, as well as enhancing HR technologies to help alleviate some of the disruptive effects associated with adaptation and advancement, particularly related to reducing administrative workload.

Carefully evaluating digital platforms and tools is critical, and selection should be based on the ability to efficiently deliver on their potential. Especially from an employee experience perspective, it's also beneficial to provide staff members with resources for exploring health services that offer lower healthcare costs and improved outcomes.
