Digital Voices: how to blend HR and technology successfully

New technologies are taking over our lives – but do they still have human elements? What effect does technology have on us, and how do we feel about it? Newspapers De Tijd and L’Echo gathered industry specialists to talk about the relation between HR and technology, including some of Flexso’s own experts. Discover what we had to say on the issue.

The imec case: the balance between human and digital

High-tech research facility imec has been working with Flexso for years. And given imec’s technological pedigree, you can imagine the bar for digitizing their HR is pretty high. From onboarding to using a bike app, imec automated the whole HR process. The main challenge: keeping the human experience front and center. Or in other words: technology should be there to make the lives of employees easier.
