A recent industry study suggested that only 25% of HR executives are interested in measuring the satisfaction of their internal customers. Beyond the grand philosophical debate, this is a critical problem.

We sit at the edge of a new era. In London in the 1820s, automation raised its head in the cotton mills. It took over 80 years from then til the widespread adoption of factory work. The 19th Century generally wasn’t pleasant as a result. People who you’d think of as HR people took the lead in making factories workable and usable. They figured out the new work. They experimented with the design of work. This will happen again as we move into the real webbed future. This week, HRExaminer explores the past and future of recruiting and human resources technology to uncover The Next Wave of HR Tech. Enjoy!
