How Technology is Changing the Field of Human Resources

It should come as no surprise to anyone that we are living in an electronic world where most people are virtually accessible at the touch of a button all hours of the day. Over the last couple of decades, technology-focused industries have brought sweeping changes to almost every facet of business. With the use of technology in all forms increasing in popularity and frequency, that trend will only continue to flourish when the next generation of prospective employees hit the market.
