There is no doubt that HR Technology plays an increasingly important role inside our organizations today. Whether simple, in-house developed tools for tracking employees in a very small organization, more complex and comprehensive ‘enterprise grade’ systems in use by most large organizations, or any of the myriad of newer HR technology solutions that are deployed via the web, in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model - the influence and importance of workplace technology continues to grow.

On August 1, SHRM We Know Next invited special guest Jason Lauritsen to chat about "Employee Engagement -- Are you Listening to the Right Employees?"

The lively conversation addressed the definition of engagement, the link to talent and entitlement, and whether engagement was the responsibility of the employer or the employee.  Should organizations allow employees to build the surveys, and do employees who question the anonymity of the surveys provide truthful answers?

On July 25,  SHRM We Know Next invited special guests Ryan Estis and Seth Mattison to chat about Next Generation Leadership. 

While Nextchatters were divided on whether the generational stereotypes hold true, they did agree that organizations will need to foster a culture of mentorship, where both sides truly believe they can learn from each other.

Today’s workplace is experiencing a revolution. Technology and the introduction of new methods of communicating, networking and collaborating have changed the way we do business and have created new challenges for leadership.

It's also a transformative era for the human resources profession. We’ve entered a unique epoch in history where four generations are intersecting in the workplace. Each carries with it deeply held convictions, attitudes, ideas and expectations about the value and meaning of work.

Diversity and Inclusion.  We’ve seen it grow and thrive in our organizations. It’s evolved from understanding and embracing differences to leveraging those differences to promote innovation.  A diverse workforce drives the success of our organizations.
But what worked 10 years ago doesn’t necessarily work today. The United States is undergoing major demographic changes, and technology and social media are making a global workplace the new reality.
