Hardly a provider of human capital or workforce management has missed the tsunami of mobile applications, connecting smartphones or tablets to HCM applications over the cloud. These always-handy “in-your-pocket” applications can provide immediacy and 24/7 accessibility to both managers and workers. But what does this mean for your organization?

Neither HR nor IT departments can afford to give employees access to this plethora of applications without serious planning. This webinar looks at the areas that need to be addressed in moving to a mobile workforce.

Join Dr. Katherine Jones, longtime industry analyst covering HCM technology at Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP, to review the critical areas underlying a mobile strategy and deployment in your organization.

You will learn:

  • Criteria in developing a mobile strategy for your organization.
  • Device management: Who’s responsible.
  • The impact of BYOD (bring your own device) vs. corporate-supplied mobile devices.
  • Planning for security and cost.
  • Cost ramifications.
