    The statistics around the usage of mobile devices is staggering, generating new opportunities and challenges for reaching top talent across all industries. Come to SMA-NJ's annual technology update and learn which leading employers have already embraced mobile devices in their recruiting and discover how mobile and cross-device data access is driving operational changes in the HR technology space.

    As part of the presentation, you'll learn from top HR Technology Consultant, Nick Meade, how employers are utilizing cloud technology to adjust to the growing need to provide data access across PCs, tablets and smart phones.  Cloud computing provides solutions that ultimately improve the way companies operate throughout the world. This is particularly true for human resources professionals.

    This presentation will provide actual examples of how cloud-based HR systems have had a major impact on businesses' ability to build culture and improve productivity. With cloud-based technologies, companies are now able to measure competencies and generate in-depth data to analyze key performance indicators like never before. Cloud-based systems enable businesses to digitally communicate business goals, creating better organizational alignment and reinforcing company values. Capabilities such as these are transforming businesses today, giving them additional capacities to provide data on human capital costs - an imperative element for organizational success for companies responding to an economy that is beginning to pick up steam after the recession. However, HR professionals are often faced with challenging questions about cloud-based technology. For example:

    • How can HR professionals ensure that a cloud-based system provides security and can be trusted to protect data?
    • How should service levels and formal service agreements be analyzed to guarantee that they are sufficient to handle organizational needs?
    • How will incorporating cloud-based technology with other applications impact areas such as payroll and benefits?

    This presentation will explore these questions about cloud-based technology, preparing HR professionals to approach their organizational challenges strategically, and participants will be provided with important issues to consider about security, service, and integration. Participants will also learn how cloud-based technology provides an efficient means to make data driven decisions based on the measurement of goals and human capital costs. HR professionals will leave the presentation understanding how cloud-based technology will enable them to remain competitive in today’s economic climate, as businesses begin to rebound from the widespread impact of the economic downturn by expanding business and bringing on new hires.
