  • Peter Alkema User Friendly HR Technology: HR self-service systems that are used by employees in large organizations need to be intuitive and user-friendly.

In a time starved business world, no one has time for frustration with technology and software firms that do not build front-ends with an inexperienced user in mind will decline. read more
