HR and Security: Work together, win together
Why HR and Security have finally teamed up
The Human Side of Security
The Days of Working in Silos are Over
Securing Digital Transformation
Collaboration between departments, especially HR, has always been a goal but rarely achieved. The move to the cloud and common operating platforms as part of the digital transformation has made it far easier to integrate Security, HR and facilities technologies. (Read more about the digital transformation here).
HR is at the center of this much-needed seismic shift. They need to keep people safe, manage exposure incidents and maintain business operations by having the right people at the right place at the right time. Security is refocused on Safety and protecting people from doing things that could inadvertently harm themselves and others — again lending to a positive employee experience. Real-time integration with HR software and Physical Security ties it all together seamlessly, proactively enforcing company policy and compliance while dramatically enhancing workforce productivity and experience.

Managing people and the workspace through Identity has become critical, especially during COVID-19. Now, enterprises can focus uniquely on the individual’s Identity and characteristics, skills and requirements and tie it all together in a single, automated process. We know who is where and when and can automatically and digitally remind workers of policies while proactively enforcing safe behavior. We can correlate and provide data essential to daily activities and reentering the workplace, choregraphing the use of a space in this new normal with sophistication and ease.
Leveraging Current Technology Investments
It’s no longer a matter of if an organization should digitally transform — it’s come down to how fast they can do it. Fact is, companies who made the move to digitally integrated processes prior to COVID-19 and were already heading down the path of convergence have actually fared better than those who weren’t and are now struggling to get their workforce back safely.
HR and Security collaboration is essential from a business and technology perspective. With it comes a new focus on the individual and their Safety at the workplace — creating the human side that perhaps was missing for some organizations.
