By HR Software, Human Resources, Technology

The traditional HR department was largely a by-product of years gone by. Think factories needing supervisors to ensure performance standards, the birth of trade and labour unions demanding employee welfare and the surge in legislation protecting all workers; the role of HR has, for the most part, remained relatively stable for decades. And yet, the events of the last two years have turned the people profession on its head.
