Meant to be the virtual complement to the physical office space, the digital workspace is a broad term that includes any device, software or platform that employees use to execute their jobs. Providing this digital environment is core to many corporate projects to improve financial performance and customer satisfaction.
Invited to speak on a panel discussion about leading in the digital workspace at the 2019 HR Indaba Africa, an annual event that attracts world class speakers from all over Africa and the world, is Tsebo Group’s Organizational Effectiveness Director, Elanie Kruger, alongside Brigitte da Gama, chief people officer at McDonald’s and Dennis Kanye the director of human capital from Motus Group.
Kruger believes that digitisation and innovation go hand in glove. “Much of the work involved in digitising the workplace includes doing the groundwork to ensure that policies and procedures are standardised throughout the operation first. Poor systems are not suddenly transformed through their digital application,” says Kruger.
Kruger spoke on driving digitisation in Tsebo, whilst maintaining a healthy company culture and referred to a digitisation project that reduced the admin burden on mangers – connecting the rostering system to the HR and payroll system, which resulted in a cut down of almost 10 days of paperwork.
