Q&A with Steve Boese: How Mobile Consumers Are Driving the Future of HR Technology:
We do so much of our jobs on mobile devices, is it possible that one day soon we'll complete our job training, fill out expense forms or even land a new position using our phones or tablets alone? Absolutely, says Steve Boese, cochairman of the HR Technology Conference. Similar forces that have morphed consumer-oriented technology into critical business tools are driving employee expectations that their HR technology be equally simple and efficient
We’re going to see more mobile-first development or mobile-only applications. In our consumer lives, we’re already completely interacting with applications like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube via mobile devices. That’s not the case yet with training and engagement technology.
Eventually we’re going to see a mobile-only recruiting application to post jobs and apply for jobs only — and perhaps we’ll see the same for learning, development & engagement. Today over 6 billion people have access to a connected mobile device and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. We're going to see a more simplified coaching experience on mobile and tablet devices. Applications will be slimmer and more targeted.
Mobile technology is changing the way we live and it is beginning to change the way we learn and coach.
