The rapid changes in HR resulting from technological advances are not an entirely new phenomenon. However, that doesn't mean they are any less challenging. I'd like to call your attention to two particularly timely resources to help with a few current technology challenges: our new e-cigarette resources and the free robotics webinar being held on June 12 (presented by Garry Mathiason of Littler Mendelson; he's widely recognized as a futurist and one of the leading authorities on employment law trends in the US).
