Last week Cammio exhibited at Zukunft Personal in Cologne. The audience and exhibitors are primarily German, however, it is by far Europe’s largest HR event. I was amazed to see such an abundance of HR technologies, services and related suppliers together in 4 gigantic exhibition halls. On the one hand, I think having options is important to be able to make an educated purchasing decision, in any marketplace. On the other hand, I can easily understand how buyers can be confused and sometimes even blinded with so many options available. The HR technology ecosystem present in Cologne was certainly both impressive and overwhelming.
If you are looking to implement an innovative HR strategy, as a prospective buyer you will have a hard time with so many options. My advice is this:
Always prioritize the process and not the technology itself. Tools and technology should be supporting, but not the goal. Go shop with that in mind and you will be prepared for ever more choice to come!
