In the simplest of cases, optimization is making the best or most effective use of a situation or opportunity. If you’re like me, the older I get the more I start thinking about ways to optimize my life. Most of us usually start by taking care of our bodies by keeping hydrated and eating healthy. Next comes exercising or at least taking the stairs instead of the elevator everyday (okay, maybe every other day). You might optimize your productivity at work by taking regular breaks so that your mind can recharge, which will ultimately help you be more productive at your job.
In my case, I work in the world of HR technology consulting, and the irony is that optimization also applies to all of the Human Capital Management (HCM) technology platforms that HR departments and employees use every day. Even the most powerful of systems need to be optimized to avoid clutter that could potentially slow the system down, as well as regular adjustments and maintenance to make sure the system is adjusted based on changes in your business process.
Good consultants can help optimize your system as they have all the necessary knowledge and tools available to maximize the performance of your platform. They can also help test and review programs to ensure the end user has the best possible experience using the system. Whether you are the recruiting manager working to onboard new hires, or the training director using your Learning Management System (LMS) to keep up with employee development, or any other HR professional in between, it is important to keep your HR systems updated and uncluttered. Optimizing your HR systems will help you to streamline your processes and will make your job easier, allowing you to shift your focus toward optimizing other areas of your work and personal life.
