Remote work has become a reality in the wake of the pandemic crisis, so the need for smart technology solutions for human resources (HR) is becoming more and more important. Learn about the latest solutions for efficient personnel management available on the market at the RIGA COMM conference “Smart HR” on 15 October, but in the meantime the organisers offer an insight into some of the solutions developed in Latvia.
Team building activities in a virtual environment
Due to constraints and safety reasons, it is more difficult to organize on-site events at present; employees are rapidly losing motivation, so it is especially important to build a connection to the company, create motivation and promote team cohesion. Representatives of the Latvian brand “Prieks darbā” point out that remote, technology-based events related to various team building games ‒ quizzes, urban orienteering events, as well as team events in small groups ‒ are most relevant at this moment of time.
Corporative online radio ‒ a new internal communication tool
When employees are working remotely, you can refresh the internal communication with the company’s online radio, creating a sense of unity, as well as informing and entertaining employees. You can plan this as a unique one-day event, as well as a weekly event with individually tailored content, such as songs, greetings, the most up-to-date information and interactive games.
Recognition technology for team building
The data technology company SQUALIO has created the recognition technology PEERO for organization management and team building, which enables feeling a sense of belonging in a company and a team sharing a common culture and values, thus promoting involvement, motivation and mutual evaluation. The application developed in Latvia is the first in the Baltics to be integrated with Microsoft Teams, thus becoming available to 75 million users worldwide.
Flexible remuneration system
Half of the Latvia’s population is not prepared for unforeseen expenses and experience acquired during the pandemic confirmed that the additional sense of security for employees is important. In partnership with Flipful, each company can give its employees financial security to overcome unexpected cases without unnecessary borrowing. In addition, the mobile app also includes tips to promote financial literacy, taking care of the long-term financial well-being of employees.
eLearning about remote work
Working from home may initially seem like a dream, but after a few days, it can become a serious challenge. In order to prepare for the new form of working, the e-training company INTEA offers a free online course on remote work, where you can learn about providing psychological and physical well-being, effective communication and best productivity tools. The company also offers a course on remote meetings where you can find out how to look and sound professional and how to avoid technical errors.
RIGA COMM is an annual business technology event in the Baltic States where developers and suppliers of enterprise resource management, document management, HRM and security systems, suppliers of cloud services, internet and digital marketing services, web solutions and mobile application developers, and ICT product manufacturers offer ready-to-use and tailored solutions for companies in different industries and of different sizes, municipal authorities and organisations to facilitate efficient operation.
The technology-rich exhibition is complemented by an extensive conference programme. In two days, more than 80 lecturers will speak from four stages in at least six events. In recent years, the RIGA COMM business technology event has been attended by approximately 5000 managers at different levels and professionals from Latvia and the rest of the Baltics. A special app and meeting area will be available to make it easier for visitors and participants to meet, communicate and collaborate successfully during the event.
