Who Should Attend
Human Resource professionals who have a responsibility for or interest in how new technology is shaping the workplace and workforce.
People who are curious to learn the fundamentals of technology so they can assess and critique HR vendor tools more effectively and improve the choice of tools to their organisation.
Technology is changing the workplace and workforce at an ever-increasing pace. With the focus on the digital transformation of organisations, functions and individuals, the need to understand how technology works has never been greater.
This New Technology & HR Masterclass is designed specifically for Human Resources professionals, using straightforward language instead of technology jargon, and sharing examples from HR and other familiar contexts. Each technology is discussed in detail; from its history, the opportunities and problems they have today, to how they may evolve in the future.
In this course, it is not the HR vendor tools that are presented, but instead the technology underneath that drive them. With so many vendors using fancy technology-related words, the need to understand and question what is behind the marketing taglines has never been greater.
