What Are Digital Twins In HR?

Editorial Team

The technology of creating electronic representations of real-world objects has existed for a while. Called Digital twins, these electronic representations are used in combination with business processes to drive efficiency and make decisions based on data.

What are Digital Twins?

Decision-making becomes more efficient, due to the increased amount of actionable information to work with. It is easier to test out performance under various conditions and put into play various different situations and stressors and assess the outcomes before they are actually exercised. 

How Are Digital Twins Helpful in HR Practices?

Digital twins can help in many various ways, for example, in lease and space management. Digital twins can help you monitor the occupancy of your office to ensure that it is within the stipulated targets of your organization. Thus, occupancy targets can be monitored and managed. Similarly, real estate management in accordance with your future business needs can also be taken care of. Digital twins can also thus help create achievable timeframes for the management of leases.

HR relies on the predictability that digital twin technology offers to guide their decisions. 

Data within an organization that generally exists in a siloed format can be merged into one platform, that is when digital twins interface with HR software. It becomes easy to coordinate with different departments so that all the required data gets sent where necessary, and critical information can be distributed where it is supposed to go.

The employment of digital twins in HR also makes it easier to gauge workplace insights. The merging of data from separate systems will help in improving the efficiency of workplace processes and add context to the environments where decision-making takes place.

With an “anytime anyplace workforce,” HR becomes a more and more integral part of organizations, to lead a company in its operations and their revisals, which is where digital twin technology can prove to be immensely helpful. 

So, HR uses digital twin technology to create virtual representations and simulations to analyze the performance of their workplace, thus gaining the insights to proceed with all processes in the right direction. 

Digital Twins Can Help Guide Leaders in Making Decisions

Digital twins can help immensely to predict problems so that solutions can be brainstormed to fill in potential gaps and find solutions before problems occur in the real world. There is thus a large margin for flexibility to avoid errors in workplace operations.

The future is not necessarily looked at when assessing problems. HR can use digital twin technology to play out future scenarios with real-time information to look for areas for improvement, fix little glitches, and prepare for real-time scenarios.

Scenario testing can also prove helpful when looking at the unexpected departure of an employee of the organization. Such situations can also be prepared for efficiently so that it is handled properly when it does come to it.

Thus, predictability in digital twin technology makes it an invaluable tool for various scenarios. This technology can be used to get a synthesized look at the workplace. For more human resources branches of organizations to adopt this technology will only lead to progress in the world of digital transformation.
