The HR community has always struggled to keep up with the times. While our peers in marketing, finance and legal departments elegantly navigate the changing tides and seamlessly adopt the latest developments, the same HR trends stick around for a relatively long time and we still keep falling behind. Technology, people analytics and diversity have been hot … Continue reading HR and the Future: Wearables in the Workplace
Oh, yes! There is a dark side. But you know that already, don’t you? While most optimistic Gig Economy enthusiasts would like the world to be dominated by “Gigglers” by 2020, I think we are a long way from getting there. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the concept of multiple gigs and multiple … Continue reading The dark side of the Gig Economy
If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m going to say it again – thehrbpstory is now 4 years old and I am very happy. I feel like a proud mother crooning over her baby. The other day, I spent hours poring over my old posts (You should check them out too!) The outcome was an idea … Continue reading Hot topics in ‘HR’
The biggest complaint I have against the HR community is that we don’t experiment as often as we should. There aren’t enough questions asked and there just isn’t enough doubt. If you’ve been here long, you know how often I rant about the need to move away from the ‘there’s nothing new under the sun’ … Continue reading All about ‘Experiments’
I am not the first to write about it. Inc.com and then a few others have already raved about Elon Musk’s TED talk. However, you know me.

Not everyone is in the same place on the curve. Take technology for example. We’ve been talking about it for as … Continue reading The future has arrived….
I find myself surrounded by a lot of talk about HR Tech, machine learning and neural sciences. However, it wasn’t until Google maps predicted where I wanted to travel that I began to freak out - not just about Google’s predictive capabilities but about HR Tech too. After all, aren’t we trying to do the … Continue reading How creepy must HR get?
I didn’t think it possible, but SHRM did raise the bar on Day 2. I’m sitting at the airport reflecting on everything I picked up over the 2 days and I can say with confidence that it’s been worth it. Not only have I been exposed to a multitude of options available in the market … Continue reading SHRM Tech Conference 2016 – Day 2, India
What a day it has been! I never imagined I’d be flabbergasted by what technology could do for the workforce and HR in particular. What was even more surprising is that human resource professionals are well aware of how technology can change lives, yet they shy away from implementation. The day began with Jason Averbook … Continue reading SHRM Tech Conference 2016 – Day 1, India
Jason Averbook did read my last post and I cannot begin to describe my joy when he agreed to discuss technology a little further for my blog. For all those who need a quick introduction, Jason Averbook is the go-to guy if you want to know how technology fits with HR. He dons multiple hats … Continue reading Five questions with Jason Averbook
