Bill Kutik’s Musings on HR Technology® 2009
Posted by Mark Bennett on November 17, 2009
After reflecting on his personal experience at September’s conference and expo and the observations made by many bloggers that attended (including mine), Bill has put together a very good column summarizing his takeaway of the important issues happening in business, HR, and social media. Go check it out.
Bill links together the oft-mentioned “generational issue” with the “digital immigrants and natives” observation and concludes that it might really be different this time. He goes on to make the point that the fear that drives organizations and HR departments to ban social media will put their companies at a competitive disadvantage. I agree and have posted previously how fear can lead to actions that ultimately destroy a company because it can’t learn anymore.
Bill ends his column by asking that those who attended email him with what they’ve learned. Bill is quite up front about his expectations and opinions, but is also just as open to input, so here’s a great chance to have your voice heard in shaping the next conference. This conference has shown to be an important gathering place for not only learning what is going on in HR technology, but also of those in the industry with great ideas and thinking about where and how business and HR can improve.
