The Role of the HR Leader during Technology Innovation by Devyani Vaishampayan

The HR Tech Landscape - Innovations that will be defining 2018 and beyond part 2 by Devyani Vaishampayan

In this exclusive video as part of The BTN's partnership with People Analytics World, Devyani Vaishampayan (Founder & Director at The HR Tech Partnership & ex Group HR Director at BSI) continues on from her previous video by looking at how HR can begin embracing innovation through the emerging use of technology within organisations.

Devyani considers how innovation and technology can lead HR to become a more strategic function, working in a way that uses technology in a similar way to the way employees use it. How can organisations, particularly HR, use emerging technology to be ahead of the curve to consequently improve employee engagement and productivity?

What are the ethics of organisations holding large amounts of data on their employees from our increasing use of technology - Who decides what data is acted upon and how do they decide?
