Social media is no longer restricted to certain generations or age groups, and platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have become such households names when enabling the exchange of information across countries and business units.
It’s for this reason that human resources departments need to update technology to enable this information exchange in the fastest way possible.
“The same applies to global companies looking to keep abreast of the latest and greatest in the ever changing marketplace, and more so to human resources, which is seen as a vital function representing companies in the ongoing war for talent,” says Srikanth Chandrashekhar, Bombardier Transportation’s HR director of shared services organisation & operations, APAC.
According to Chandrashekhar, multi-national companies are addressing their HR priorities – such as creating a strong company brand value, attracting the brightest talent and competitively paying their employees - by investing in technology.
“Having a strong virtual presence, analytics and self service are no longer a topic of discussion but a question of timing,” he says. “Given this, technology for human resources becomes not only a value proposition of HR, but a vital component of business sustenance.”
Chandrashekhar will speak at HR Tech Interactive 2013 on a panel with other regional HR professionals, who will discuss future-proofing yourself and your business.
