To state the obvious, information technology has impacted our lives both professionally and personally in ways that only the most forward thinking of us ever imagined. It’s not a stretch to say that virtually every company relies on technology for their business even if it’s only for email, a website or billing.
Like technology, HR is foundational in some way, shape or form in every company. Even small companies, which might farm out HR functions to employers associations or other entities, have elements of HR, such as hiring, payroll, and benefits, at their core. As companies grow, both the IT and HR functions play an increasingly impactful role.
