As organizations consider their needs and goals in the next one to five years, technology is unquestionably going to be an integral part of any successful operation. To that end, HR needs to consider the breadth of their options to support the organizational strategy. What we know already is how technology has impacted our workplace and how it is reshaping the challenges that exist ahead.

  • How infrastructure supports the desired results;
  • Candidly evaluating weaknesses in present operations and how they impact all aspects of the operation; and
