HR Delivery? Mobile First!

Last week, I went on a family camping trip. My niece was a bit out of sorts as her boyfriend had other plans and could not join us. Needless to say, she spent quite a bit of the weekend texting on her phone. At the end of the trip I noticed she had stayed in touch with him through texting…

HR is not about Technology…

I’ve been reading some articles that question the influx of technology into HR. The general idea is that technology dehumanizes the personal touch that HR leaders are keen to have. Somewhere along the line, we’ve become so obsessed to make HR service delivery as cost-efficient as possible that we’ve overlooked the employee experience. And that means we’re missing out on…

Run Your HR For Free

During a recent #HRTechChat, we were discussing how social media influences HR. One question led to another, until finally we talked about free HR services, which led me to ask: can you run HR on free technology? As this was not the topic, we didn’t discuss it any further, but now that we need a fun post for the upcoming…

What is on HR’s Mind?

It’s almost 2013, and the first trend papers have been published. 2012 was a busy year for HR, with many developments in the HRTech space. It all started early this year with SAP’s acquisition of Successfactors. Then Oracle bought Taleo and IBM Kenexa. So for the first time in many years HR was labeled as “hot and happening” instead of…

The Trouble with Klout

Those who read my blog know that I have been writing about Klout a few times before (Do you have Klout? & Klout revisited)  to understand how online influence can be determined. This week I am adding to that because I went away for a few days and was unable to tweet. Look at what happened to my Klout score: As soon…

Social Media Sunday

It’s not often I disagree with Laurie, also known as the Cynical Girl, but yesterday was one of those days when I read Social Media Saturday. My apologies Laurie, but your post was just, well, way too cynical and left me feeling compelled to write a rebuttal. First off, I am not an Apple geek. iPhone3 was the first Apple gadget I…

The Day the Cloud Went Bust

If you are on Twitter, I am sure you recognize the illustration: the Twitter whale signals that the system is not working as it should. Unless you are in the middle of a tweet-up, Twitter being out of service is unlikely to be more than annoying. But what about other cloud applications we have come to rely on? Do you…

What is good HR service?

A few weeks ago somebody told me she decided to quit her job and start out on her own. We were talking about the opportunity and I asked her what role HR played in her decision. She answered: `They had some wonderful tools and policies available´. I was a bit surprised to find out that she actually meant it and…
