HR 2.0 webinar


Wordle Digital HR   Just another reminder about my webinar next week (Thursday 11th September) with Knowledge Infusion's CEO, Jason Averbook, focusing on what they call digital HR (the combination of consumer based technologies such as wikis, blogs, social networking and other web 2.0 technologies with the workforce facing initiatives that HR has been focusing on for the past 10 years, including employee and manager self-service, intranets, portals and reporting).

One of the component parts of digital HR we may be discussing is visualisation technology, and I thought I would include a graphic of the announcement of the webinar, made using Wordle, on this post.  Wordle is one of a handful of systems for generating word clouds and other graphics for highlighting and presenting ideas in presentations and other applications and is now included with more analytical visualisations on IBM's Many Eyes.

And visualisation technology is just one example of the various ways that HR can interact with employees in a more people oriented way.  Find out more in the webinar next week - register here.
