HRD Tech Founders Q&A
“Many companies state that their staff are their greatest asset, yet HR has been one of the last departments to get any technology investment other than Applicant Tracking Systems or HR Management Systems. It has been about efficiency rather than engagement and effectiveness.
The good news is that in the last 5 years or so, there has been a significant growth in HR tech offering to fill the gap around engagement and effectiveness. The challenge is to understand which of the offerings are suited to your organisation and what the ROI will be for each one.”
