The changing face of HR tech

The changing face of HR and what tech is playing a key role

With new tech whizzing around and taking us places we never thought possible, it’s easy to get lost in what’s best to use to better our jobs. HR’s role has forever been changing, from ‘personnel’ to now ‘Human Resources’. But now with the modern corporations needing stats and numbers to support all of their core decisions, HR needs to step up and show what they’re really worth.

Recruitment – Workable

They use cutting edge AI to find more candidates that fit the bill. Accessible to all employees throughout your small start-up or your big corporation. Easy, straight-forward recruitment.
