New technologies have enabled new workforce trends across every business sector – the way people search, apply, and secure jobs is all changing drastically. It is up to companies to adapt and integrate components of these trends into their organizations to compete for top talent in this new economy. In addition, the rise of the platform and technology-based economy is challenging retailers to provide more flexible opportunities and find new ways of approaching the hiring process and constructing their workforce mix.
In talking with HR executives from our retail member companies, they're increasingly investing in technologies to help them address their biggest challenges and exploring innovations that enable the future of work.
To that end, RILA recently launched our first ever RTech HR Innovation Awards. The Awards call on solution providers dedicated to helping employers innovate in areas like delivery, portable benefits, staffing & hiring, payroll management, and shift sharing to apply. Submissions will be evaluated by top HR executives from RILA member companies and finalists will be chosen to present their technology before CHROs at RILA's Human Resources Leaders Council meeting in January 2019.
