TechHR - Putting People at the heart of Digital Technology




Here is the video of my ignite presentation at People Matters' Tech HR conference in India this August.

My suggestion was that the latest breed of workforce productivity tools correspond to the creating value level of strategic HR and that they therefore need to be used in a creating value way.  We err when we forget this and try to treat these systems like traditional technologies.

A good example is measurement through wearables and other technologies - the tendency is always to grab hold of this data to manage people tighter.  See this post from WEF -They’re already here: devices that let your boss monitor your brain.  

Creating value actually needs us to loosen up and give this data to our people to help them manage themselves.
