IoT HR – Human Resources Organizations Transformation


The IoT HR allows Human Resources organizations to utilize the sensors, networks, big data and analytics to revolutionize the way they manage their information and greatly increase the efficiency and productivity within the enterprise.

Human Resources organizations can harness the Internet of Things (IoT) to get useful information on potential employees, as well as better manage their own performance.

The goal of Human Resources organizations is to use real-time data to optimize staff and workflow management. HR will accomplish this, changing their traditional system into IoT oriented systems. As a result, the workplace and enterprise functions have the potential to become highly efficient.






IoT HR – Technology

The Human Resources executives should think in 4 Internet of Things devices already in use in organizations or making their way quickly to them.

1.    Mobile Phones and Tablets

Phones and the tablets are central hubs in IoT. The CEOs, CIOs and HR executives need to have a clear and solid mobile and digital culture to create new business processes or transform the existing ones to collect the right data and measure the right parameters in each process.


2.    Health and fitness trackers

Talent health remains a key topic for human resources organizations. Employees in good physical condition can perform better and are more engaged. Anything a company can do to contribute to the employee’s health is good for the organization.


3.    Attendance and location trackers

Trackers can be used to track individual’s locations, positions and movements. These devices can monitor alertness on the job. One example is, trackers on truck drivers, the device can scan for fatigue while driving and be alerted to prevent accidents.

The combination of fitness and attendance trackers can tell a Human Resources organization how many hours an employee is working and if he / she is doing some type of physical activity to relax and release stress. This information can help HR organizations to advise employees on how to balance work and fitness.


4.    Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)

This year – 2016 – was the year when both VR and AR were released upon the general population. This IoT technology will revolutionize what Human Resource organizations can do in different HR areas. For example:

IoT HR – Recruitment

Companies will be in a position to improve the assessment of candidates by placing them in virtual situations to test their behavior.

IoT HR – Learning

The talent will be able to learn on a simulated environment where they will be embedded performing the action related to the training like assembling product part, extinguishing a fire, driving a car, etc. Video, sensors and analytics will allow the trainers to have a more accurate information on how the employee is learning and make the necessary adjustments.






IoT HR – Privacy

Privacy is one of the areas the C-levels need to study very carefully to protect the integrity of the company talent and make the right changes in HR policies. Doing this incorrectly can cause frustration and stress and reduce employee engagement. if employees feel that a new technology or management system provides no real benefit to them, they may avoid using it or even actively undercut its adoption.



If IoT applications have the power to fundamentally alter how organizations measure and improve themselves, they also bring challenges that companies may not yet be equipped to handle.

Experience shows that workers worry that their employers may use personal monitoring against them. Research shows that almost 75 percent of employees believe their employers are already capturing data about them without their knowledge, so people are suspicious and a little worried.
