Harvard human resources has announced that it is hiring more people in its new HR space than ever before, with the company hoping to attract a mix of highly qualified and motivated workers who can help improve the human resources management experience in the workplace.
Harvard HR is the latest in a string of HR companies to embrace technology in recent years, with companies like IBM, Amazon, and Salesforce investing in a range of different tools to increase employee engagement and productivity.
While the company’s HR space is designed to allow HR managers to focus on more than HR, the company has also found success in helping organizations manage HR and organizational resources.
The HR department at Harvard Human Resources was launched in December 2016 with the goal of helping companies manage HR, including recruiting, hiring, retaining and promoting HR professionals.
The company says that hiring more human resources professionals has helped it to create “more efficient, agile and productive HR teams,” but it says it needs to improve on this effort as it seeks to hire more employees.
As Harvard HR sees it, HR is a “key part of human resource management” in its HR department, and while there is a need for better human resources training and a more holistic approach to HR, hiring more HR employees has helped Harvard HR to “build an innovative, flexible, collaborative HR management experience.”
Harvard Human Resources is currently in the process of looking for new HR workers to help boost its HR workforce.
The hiring announcement comes on the heels of another HR company, Accenture, announcing that it will soon hire 5,000 new employees in its Boston office, adding to its current 2,500.
The hiring of more employees has been a goal for Accenture for some time, with Accenture officials saying that HR is one of the biggest challenges it faces.”HR is a core component of our business, and we are actively seeking to improve its efficiency and productivity, so we can deliver the best experience for our employees,” Accenture CEO Rob Mello said in a statement.
“We are also excited to add additional HR talent to our Boston team.”
The HR hiring announcement is not the first time that Accenture has announced a hiring spree.
Accenture announced a similar hiring spree in January of this year, bringing on about 5,500 people to its Boston headquarters.
