HR Happy Hour 347 - Technology at Work: It's Complicated
Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane
Guest: Dan Staley, PwC
Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish were joined by Dan Staley, Partner, US HR Technology Leader, PwC to talk about Technology in the Workplace, and how HR and Business leaders can better support employees with technology. PwC recently released a new report titled 'Our Status With Tech at Work: It's Complicated',
PwC asked 12,000 people from Canada, China and Hong Kong, Germany, India, Mexico, the UK, and the US to share their views about the digital tools they use in their daily work. We heard from all generations, from C-suite titles to administrative roles, and from a range of industries including consumer markets, health industries, financial services, manufacturing, and technology and media. On the show, Dan shared some of the interesting findings from the report as well as offering some recommendations for HR leaders for improving the employee experience with technology at work.
The report showed that their often is a disconnect between what employees want from their workplace technologies and what their organizations are providing. Additionally, we discussed some deas to improve technology selection and deployment processes to better align employee expectations and goals with management's eventual decisions around workplace technology.
