In the U.S., this weekend is the Labor Day holiday. It’s a holiday to celebrate the American worker. I’m sure there are many other countries that celebrate their employees throughout the year. It totally makes sense to recognize the thing that makes your organization unique – people.
People also make your organization productive. So, I thought for this Labor Day weekend, I would round up a series of posts on a topic that people just can’t live without these days – technology. Employees use technology to find a job, get onboarded, receive training, and much more.
Because technology is moving at such a rapid pace, it can be a challenge to keep up with all of the tech terms and acronyms. So, if you’re wondering what the difference is between AI, ERP, HCM, and GDPR, here are some posts that can help:

P.S. Speaking of HR technology, I’m excited to be spending next week at the HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas. It’s always a very educational and informative event. If you’re not planning to be there, be sure to follow the #HRTechConf event hashtag on Twitter and check out the HR Tech Insiders blog. It’s a great way to see the happenings from the comfort from your office.
