For years, the human resources function has shouldered much of the responsibility for managing people, in a largely segregated operation. Technology advances will change all this, by integrating talent management into the fabric of everyday business. HR IT will thus become a vital component of organizational performance in an increasingly competitive and fast-changing world. As HR heads toward a future characterized by Big Data, integration, mobility, social media, gamification, and cloud computing, the ability for organizations to manage their people will grow more flexible, agile and customized. Digital technology is continuing to become a norm in our everyday lives. HR professionals are expected to deliver and understand the new millennials and how to build a strategy that empowers them to unleash potential and take significantly more responsibility to increase employee return of investment. As digital enables talent management to become less of a centralized HR activity and more of an activity that is embedded in the fabric of everyday business, it will fundamentally change HR as we know it.
