When you ask people which they think are the coolest jobs in the office, HR doesn’t usually come to mind. Sexiest jobs? Forget it. Unfortunately, the old stigma that HR is boring and outdated still persists.
You and I both know that this isn’t the case today. After all, human resources deal with humans — the most intelligent species on the planet; this is why HR is so complex.
Let’s spice it up with a bit of tech. When working in the tech recruiting field, not only do you get to hear interesting requests and juicy news regarding your company’s employees, you also get to work on many hot topics. Gender diversity. HR Tech. IT Recruitment. Developer Engagement & Retention. Company Culture. Employer Branding. The list goes on, but you get the idea.
Tech recruiting is changing fast
“Competing for tech talent is about understanding your market, knowing what your current and prospective employees are looking for, and doing your best to create the environment that attracts the right workers to your company.” – Stacey Carroll, Principal Consultant at Payscale
HR, more specifically HR in tech, has evolved BIG time. Tech talent wars are now a thing. More importantly, HR is no longer just a spectator in a company’s strategy; it can be the driving force in implementing new initiatives and changing how a company operates through its people and culture. So, why aren’t more people pumped about HR like we are?!
