Design Thinking for HR Transformation



Design thinking is viewed as a multi-disciplinary, non-linear approach to view business challenges from a fresh perspective. It has penetrated almost every field of the business, including human resources.

In HR's context, the principles of design thinking are applied to answer human-centered questions and challenge assumptions. It comprises developing an in-depth understanding of people for whom solutions are being designed and involve them in the process so as to come up with out-of-the-box ideas to enhance their workplace experiences. 

Delivering differentiated and satisfying customer experiences can lead to boost in loyalty, market share and revenues. Imagine what a similar focus on employee experiences could mean for business. Leading companies are already recognizing that the employee experience is the new battleground for competitive advantage 

The next step is to understand on what drives the superior employee experiences that drive employee engagement, retention and productivity.

Design Thinking in HR can enable you in:

  1. Understanding, envisioning and designing how employees experience work
  2. Perceiving the employer-employee relationship through talent solution platform
  3. Storming, norming and forming ideas quickly with employee experience ideas

Prioritizing action to ensure consistent employee experience
