When examining how technology is impacting HR, it’s useful to break down the HR lifecycle into its key components. This can be done in many ways but we like to break it down into three simple stages: • GET THE JOB- Recruitment, and onboarding • DO THE JOB- Training, culture, and productivity • GET REWARDED- recognition and performance management New tech solutions are starting to permeate all three stages of the HR lifecycle. Below are the top 5 emerging trends that we have identified: • TREND #1: Increasing use of AI-powered candidate matching tools • TREND #2: Tech-enabled employee referrals as a recruitment channel • TREND #3: Replacing tedious generic corporate training with personalized online learning • TREND #4: The rise of free/ low-cost HR management tools that aggregate health insurance • TREND #5: Crowdsourcing employee feedback to inform culture, recognition and performance management

Grant Wilkinson, Executive, Global Business Solutions joins us to unpack the dynamics of employees' questionable social media remarks and how businesses can manage it. Social media is an extremely powerful tool. No longer is being published on a platform - that the entire world can see - the sole domain of print media and limited to a selected few. Anyone can become a published author thanks to the Internet and social media. This is an incredibly powerful tool; however, some may abuse this power and, in the process, bring their employers into disrepute. The case of Hanniker v One and Only Cape Town (Pty) Ltd – 26 CCMA 8.37.9 illustrates this point: • An employee published a comment on Facebook which allegedly brought his employer (a hotel) and the hotel’s security manager into disrepute. • She – the employee – claimed that her comments were valid and were posted in reaction to an incident that the security manager was negligent.
