Want to Improve Your Company’s Performance? Start with Employee Success.
Great talent leaders are often cited for upholding their organization’s values; for being a champion of the workforce; and for recruiting new employees. Most aren’t traditionally known for their technological expertise. But in today’s world, recruiting the best talent while also keeping everyone engaged and productive is imperative, and technology is playing an increasingly critical role in the HR practice.
According to Gartner, office space is increasingly being used to drive cultural change, attract talent, drive innovation and improve productivity, requiring CIOs to adjust their approach to the workspace. (Gartner, The Rebirth of Office Space: What Every CIO Needs to Know and Do, March 2, 2016)

And it’s all being driven by consumer-like technology.
