E and HR 2.0 technologies


   I posted recently to say how pleased I was to see HR getting a stream of its own at this November’s Enterprise 2.0 conference.

Oliver Marks, who’ll be chairing the stream, has been interviewing Bill Kutik, host of next month’s HR Technology conference, which I’ve also posted on recently, about HR, technology and collaboration.

This is a response to that interview and I’m writing it, because, although I think Bill makes some good points as usual, the interview misses a big area of the agenda too.

Yes, there are lots of HR people who work in compliance roles.  And Bill may even be right in suggesting that this is the main focus of the function.  But there are plenty more who do have human capital / business strategy and competitive advantage as their agenda.  And maybe Bill doesn’t see much of these people because they’ve not been a core target for HR technology until now.
