HR Happy Hour 244 – Global Trends in HR Technology from HR Tech China
Guest: Madeline Laurano
This week on the HR Happy Hour show, join hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane as they talk with Madeline Laurano, co-founder of Aptitude Research Partners. Fresh from the HR Technology Conference in Zhuhai, China, the three talk about the trends in HR technology and how they are similar around the globe.
Specifically, the conversation covers having Talent Acquisition as a priority and the Chinese focus on services. With that focus, there is great interest in acquiring and using the best and most relevant HR technologies. We also talked about the way that China officials brand their city and the benefits US organizations could gain by having that focus.
We also talk about the way that China uses social media in their organizations. The perception is that they ban most of the sites we use in the US. And while that may be true, they have alternatives that may be just as effective. In fact, the US contingent all embraced WeChat and loved it.
