Technology can make or break your experience at work. Get it right, and it can improve productivity, communication, employee engagement and retention. Get it wrong, and your people will be left tearing their hair out in frustration (if they stick around).
It’s no longer possible for HR and L&D to stand apart from technology; it’s integral not only to the success of these functions, but also to the wider employee experience. Good Work, Great Technology: enabling strategic HR success through digital tools, brought to you by HR software provider Ciphr, aims to lift the lid on the technology that matters most to HR professionals, and the impact that some of the latest innovations are making across the employee lifecycle – helping you make informed decisions on where to invest your time and energy.
Good Work, Great Technology makes the case for the power of integrated people technology to solve your most pressing HR and business challenges – transforming HR functions into innovative people teams that successfully boost the happiness and productivity of their workplaces.
“My hope is that, by reading this book, you’ll view people-technology in a new light, moving away from attempting a one-size-fits-all approach, and instead embracing the possibilities offered by connecting the best technologies for your needs.”
– Chris Berry, CEO and founder of Ciphr Group
