Summer is winding down, and it was a quiet week in employment law. The relative calm gives us a chance to look ahead, and human resources and tech gurus Steve Boese and Josh Bersin have both provided predictions about the integration of technology into human resources. Their predictions – which include better integration of HR tech into corporate systems, improved on-demand training, and new ways to measure performance management – provide good indicators of what to watch for in the next wave of HR tech. It was also a good week to review best practices, and the HR Daily Advisor provided a handy guide on how to handle a termination meeting.
