Stitch World - - HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT -

De­cep­tion: This is the first phase of tech­nol­ogy adop­tion. Dur­ing this phase, em­ploy­ees feel lit­tle un­com­fort­able with tech­nol­ogy. Em­ploy­ees are un­able to see hu­man in­ter­ven­tions re­duc­ing; more­over, they can only see dis­tur­bances hap­pen­ing due to tech­nol­ogy adop­tion. For in­stance, em­ploy­ees may take lit­tle time to de­velop pur­chase or­der via ERP sys­tems, how­ever these sys­tem; will help re­duce the time, they are easy to ac­cess, share and dis­trib­ute. In this case, the HR needs to ex­plain the ben­e­fits of digi­ti­sa­tion to its em­ploy­ees. With time, they will start re­al­is­ing the ben­e­fits of tech­nol­ogy and will be able to adopt digi­ti­sa­tion.

De­ma­te­ri­al­i­sa­tion: This is the sec­ond phase in which all the bulky files, bulky equip­ment can be thrown out. All the ex­pen­sive gad­gets such as cam­era and GPS sys­tems will not be used. In­stead sleek equip­ment will be in use such as for tak­ing videos, smart­phones and soft­wares will be pre­ferred.

De­mon­eti­sa­tion: In this phase, ev­ery­thing will hap­pen with the help of dig­i­tal pay­ments.

Dis­rup­tion: Once peo­ple start ac­cept­ing tech­nol­ogy, the man­ual sys­tem will fade away. This is mainly known as dis­rup­tion of tech­nol­ogy.

Democrati­sa­tion: It is one of the most im­por­tant phases as ev­ery­body in the fac­tory can eas­ily ac­cess the tech­nol­ogy start­ing from op­er­a­tors, work­ers, su­per­vi­sors, mid­dle-man to con­tract labour­ers and the higher au­thor­ity.
