We’re living in the age of digital disruption. It’s no longer a question of if your business will be disrupted, it’s only a matter of when. Will you be ready?


While some executives believe the solution to disruption is to throw ever-more technology at the problem and hope it sticks, smart HR professionals know there is a more human answer. Rather than giving employees more tools that they must learn and adapt to, many companies are turning to a single solution instead – the Interactive Intranet.

An Interactive Intranet brings people together with the experts they need, the corporate memory they desire and the solutions they already use. Allowing employees to connect with colleagues, showcase their contributions, and get the feedback and recognition they deserve is key to engagement – and engagement is key to success.


In a brand new article for Talent Management entitled “HR’s Role in Technology Disruption,” written by myself and Jive’s Senior Manager of Employee Success, Amy Dobler, we discuss the importance of engagement, retention and culture in this age of disruption.


Today, the companies that succeed will be those that employ HR to connect people, information and systems in ways that create productive and rewarding experiences.

Disrupted or disruptor?
