Time to Show Your Tech-Savvy Side
Whether you’re new to the industry or you’re a seasoned pro, you probably scoff at the old stereotype that HR professionals are good with people but bad with technology.
The new face of HR is all about automation and analytics, and this transformation presents the perfect opportunity to expand your skill set and prove your tech savviness to the world. But you need to move quickly. And with purpose.
“Embrace technology!” is the rally cry of industry experts, but to be fair, it’s not easy developing a fully-baked tech-driven talent strategy while you’re in the thick of new vendor bids and system integrations, or you’re working to find cohesion in a mess of piecemeal solutions. All that, while sustaining your regular HR functions, of course.
Even still, a future-oriented strategy is essential to your success. See why the time is right for HR to become a key strategic player, according to Forbes.
