Discussion: Global HR: Challenges and Trends
Take a moment to consider the role of technology in your life. Advancing technology, artificial intelligence, digital devices at every turn: it is very likely that you are never more than arm’s length away from a screen or device. Technology is a huge part of everyday life in most of the modern world. HR professionals not only have to contend with using technology to complete domestic tasks: software used for benefits and payroll, compliance reporting, training and professional development, communication within departments, within the organization and with a multitude of other organizations but they must also be aware of the rules and regulations surrounding how technology is used and the data that is collected.
Current HR trends show that organizations are continuing to rely on new and advanced technologies to acquire new talent, retain employees and make decisions on employee engagement. HR managers will need to stay up-to-date on emerging technologies and the impact they have on company culture, strategy, operating plans, and future talent needs (Burkett, 2017). In addition to the number of tech giants that are creating platforms and technology for use in the human resources market (HR Technologist, 2020), HR leaders have to be prepared to deal with employee data privacy issues. The increased use of technology in the global workforce means it is susceptible to numerous privacy and security issues, for even the smallest of businesses. Advancement in technology is just one of the many challenges facing businesses and HR management professionals in the future.
In this Discussion, you will explore the top trends faced by U.S.-based companies as their HR departments deal with a global workforce. You will consider the challenges that global HR professionals meet and the solutions to those challenges.
