Technology might seem like a toy to some, but when businesses invest in useful applications and software, the returns can be enormous. The ways HR can use technology have breadth and depth, says Aaron Green, VP of human capital management strategy at Oracle.
Social technologies in the workplace can take many forms, from an app to an intranet. In addition to benefits such as increased employee engagement, Green argues that tech gives HR access to something equally valuable – data. Rather than shy away from incorporating more technology into everyday business functions, it’s time for HR to embrace a digital future.
