As we wrap up the HR Technology series with Kelly Zimmerman from BTR, we discuss how companies that have HR Technology in place may be spending too much on the wrong products. What is the shelf life of technology? What you needed in 2010 may not be what you need now. Side Affects Producer, Kenzie, Co-Host, Anne Marie, and Kelly highlight how important it is to build a relationship with your HR Tech vendor and ask them as experts the questions you don’t know. You may not know what you need! Tune in to fix those red flags that are draining your budget and make sure the technology is working for you and you are not working for the technology.
