Technology can have huge benefits for the HR function. Whether it's saving time by streamlining processes, boosting engagement by enabling analysis of people data or improving employee development by allowing staff to access the content they need on different platforms, wherever and whenever they need it; the opportunities are vast. However, with more apps, software and platforms than ever before, the volume and variety of available technologies can be overwhelming. This makes it extremely difficult for HR professionals to know where to start when assessing what technologies are out there and which are worth investing in.

There is also discussion of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) and what they mean for HR. This book is essential reading for all HR professionals looking to use technology confidently to increase performance, improve processes and add value to both employees and the business as a whole.

As I read through this book, my thought was that it cannot come fast enough. With Human Capital at the top of the pyramid, we need to unleash our HR department to deal with the new realities and get away from the PROCESS focus. Reskill and have this department laser-focused on building a high-performance workforce to increase business outcomes. This is such welcome news, and every progressive HR leader needs to rethink not only their role, but the team's role. This takes us to a reskilling/upskilling effort like we have never witnessed before." * Ron Thomas, Managing Director, Strategy Focused Group *"Whether you are on point to find the best fit technology solution or you are new to the field of HR, this book is the primer you need to go from 0-60 on HR Technology.
