#Nextchat: HR Technology, Simplified

Human Resources has an important role in an organization when it comes to decreasing expenses and maximizing revenue, and finding the right technology is key to increasing productivity, efficiency and effectiveness.

When looking to implement new HR technology, it’s necessary to understand current processes, identify organizational goals and determine future needs.  These initial surveys will help to streamline the selection process and mitigate costly mistakes.

Unless you’re the VP of HR Technology, or have a passion for technology in general, it can be a daunting topic.  HR pros –- especially the “HR departments of one” -- are overstretched as it is, and have little time to research the latest tools. There are thousands of solutions and every vendor claims to have the best platform, but how do you know what’s best for your organization?
