Human Capital Management

Human Capital Management (HCM) is rapidly changing.

For evidence at just how quickly, look at how employees are being recruited today; according to one recent survey, "98.2 percent [of recruiters] said they tapped some form of social media for recruiting in 2012."

Indeed, HCM executives need to evolve both their systems and strategies in order to find and retain talent—and manage employees in dispersed and often global locations. In this special report, learn how to leverage new technology, from social media to Cloud and gamification tools, to transform your HCM strategy.

Plus, Profit talks to Millennial experts about how young employees entering the workforce can work within a quickly changing environment to showcase their skills and build the careers they want.
