Technology supplement: Futureproofing versus present practicalities
HR and business leaders are constantly told to prepare for, and be the pioneering users of, new technologies such as AI, robotics and blockchain. But on the flip side many HR teams are yet to get the basics right. So before getting carried away with the latest tech trends they perhaps need to look to their current needs and address these first.
This technology supplement explores the importance of getting this balance between future-gazing and the here-and-now just right, and how to do it – featuring advice on present practicalities such as the GDPR and gamification, but also on more futuristic possibilities such as VR in recruitment and 'doing HR' for robots.
