Hey #HR Aristocrats! This is more of a “coming attractions” preview than one of my usual blog posts.
There are lot of exciting things coming out of “The Aristocracy of HR” and I want you to hear it here. First, let’s talk about Technology and more importantly HR Technology.
Technology has been and will continue to be the primary and most important driver of innovation. It is changing the way we do business, the way we communicate, the way we see the world, and more importantly the world of work. It is a game changer and/or a change agent.
HR Technology is a niche within this vast world of technology, but an important player. The importance of this duo is HR too is a game changer/change agent or at least that is where I think HR needs to be to be an effective entity (separate conversation), but I digress. HR the commander and advocate of human capital married to Technology the overarching and supreme change agent is transformational.
As such, I am kicking off this series of guest posts from fellow HR Tech Enthusiasts which will end with a post from me on “The Futurism of HR Technology”. Sounds cool… right?
According to Merriam-Webster, Futurism has two meanings:
1) A movement in art, music, and literature begun in Italy about 1909 and marked especially by an effort to give formal expression to the dynamic energy and movement of mechanical processes
2) A point of view that finds meaning or fulfillment in the future rather than in the past or present
The first definition doesn’t begin to move me until you get to the part about “dynamic energy and movement of mechanical processes”–powerful! Then I move to the second definition and there you have it “meaning or fullfillment in the future rather than in the past or present”– uber powerful!
This series was created to explore not where we have been (maybe we can take a short glimpse) but where is the marriage of HR Tech is taking us.
“The Aristocracy of HR” is a society that I envision as having the HR’s best and brightest at the helm doing HR as it ought to be. As such it is only right that I take a moment to tell the world that the HR society as we know it is shifting. The best is yet to come and it is coming via “HR Technology”.
I hope you will tune in and help me celebrate my one year blog anniversary on Thursday, September 13th. More to come on new ventures and also some posts in between on what this past year has taught me as a new blogger.
Dosvidan’ya for now! That’s goodbye in Russian! ; )
