North West Business Group22 - 23 February 2012, Istanbul, Turkey.
The role of Human Resources is changing as fast as technology and the global marketplace. Historically, the HR department was viewed as administrative overhead.

HR processed payroll, handled benefits administration, kept personnel files and other records, managed the hiring process, and provided other administrative support to the business. Those times have changed. The positive result of these changes is that HR professionals have the opportunity to play a more strategic role in the business. The challenge for HR managers is to keep up to date with the latest HR innovations - technological, legal, and otherwise.
