Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, human resources leaders were already faced with a myriad of organizational responsibilities and problems, but now, they’re handling more than their usual tasks, some of which they’re dealing with for the first time.

While the pandemic has proven to be the most challenging part of everyone’s lives, it has also certainly become a wake up call, especially for businesses, to remodel and improve their operations―including their digital transformation.

SWAT Mobility, a provider of smart mobility solutions, offers apps designed to help improve the mobility concerns of many organizations. It recently found in a study that companies in the Philippines employ an average of seven people just to manually organize transportation routes for their employee shuttle or bus fleets. This task alone takes up so much from the day of HR and admin employees. SWAT’s smart mobility apps take this kind of burden off of their shoulders. By digitizing their employee transportation processes, HR and admin staff members will have more time to do other tasks and similarly transport employees safely, which is important amidst the pandemic. The company has supported local organizations such as KMC Solutions and even the Philippine General Hospital with its technology.

With these technologies already in place, HR leaders now have more legroom to improve their operations.
