Use of social and collaborative technologies and the Cloud are addressed as they relate to Human Resources and related business challenges

It is easy to talk in the abstract when discussing Enterprise 2.0, but the reality is that these disruptive technologies are truly having a bottom-line impact on HR

Over the past twenty years, Human Capital Management (HCM) has significantly evolved, and broadened its focus. Today's mission revolves not only around helping shape culture, and managing compensation and benefits, but on acquiring, developing and retaining key talent, aligning employee performance with business results, and supporting organizational innovation and change. In support of this evolving mandate, many companies are leveraging a variety of social and collaborative technologies combined with Cloud architectures that deliver bottom line results. Bill McNee, founder and CEO of Saugatuck Technology, the leading IT research and consultancy specializing in new and disruptive technologies, will focus on these and other issues at the upcoming Enterprise 2.0 conference, to be held November 8-11, 2010, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in Santa Clara, CA.

On Tuesday morning, November 9th, McNee, will lead a keynote panel entitled "Human Resources Meets Enterprise 2.0 and the Cloud." Joining McNee to help kick off the conference are Ciara Smyth, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, Eric Lane, Vice President Human Resources, at Intuit, Tony Treglia, former SVP for HR Service Delivery at Aviva USA, and Oliver Marks, co-founder of the Sovos Group, a recognized expert in collaborative strategies and change management.

"I'm delighted to be working with UBM Techweb and the other panelists to help flesh out some real-world use-cases of how social and collaborative technologies and the Cloud are impacting the Human Resources function," shared McNee. "So often it is easy to talk in the abstract when discussing Enterprise 2.0, but the reality is that these disruptive technologies are truly having a bottom-line impact on HR - whether you're talking about measuring performance, recruiting and retention strategies, the on-boarding and off-boarding of employees, knowledge transfer, building community, or even in regards to collaboratively reshaping how work is done - both internally and externally," added McNee.
