How can Digital Technology change the future of HR and our workplace?

What does the future of the SME workplace look like? And, how will employees engage with their employers in the future?

Workplace environments are a daily experience for most of us, good or bad, they shape how we feel on a daily basis. It’s why it’s crucial that businesses have processes in place that ensure employees and teams feel appreciated, empowered and above all, happy.

##How can Digital Technology change the way things happen in our workplace?

We had thirty MA Postgraduate students research this very question for our industry partner, BrightHR.

We explored how Digital Technology would disrupt healthcare, and the housing system in our last blogs, and as part of this year’s industry brief, they presented a 10 year journey for their Digital Technology module that explored the future of HR. Their brief encompassed the changes to technology and society that BrightHR’s service would need to respond to.

And today, #dmm7 pitch to @bright_hr for their #digital #tech brief for the future of #hr #postgrad #hyperislanduk #learn
