Last week, Apical Resource Group had our second monthly All Candidates meeting in order to discuss the employment landscape, new initiatives abouttechinfo and new hospitality technologies. We had some great discussions spearheaded by Chicke Fitzgerald of Solutionz Media that surrounded a number of topics that included a candidate’s online reputation as well as online positioning. There is a lot more to come about this very interesting subject.
One of the main areas of discussion was focused on hospitality technology and how it figures into a candidate’s decision-making process on whether they should accept a job offer from a prospective employer. As technology continues to evolve, it is increasingly important that people fully understand the “technology state of the company” as it relates to their current technology as well as their future technology direction. How a company is perceived in regards to its technology will either make it easier for its employees to obtain outward visibility or it can hinder them greatly. It does not matter whether the position with a prospective employer is a sales, marketing, development or an executive position, the technology plan that is in front of a candidate should be highly scrutinized.
Mark Hoare, a Partner at The Prism Partnership, was our guest speaker related to the future direction of hospitality technology and his insight was greatly appreciated. Mark discussed initiatives that will help a candidate focus on technologies that are up and coming. Some of these initiatives were the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, where the application is truly Internet native and you pay to use the technology application via a subscription or transaction fee and have no overhead associated with buying and maintaining the hardware or software required to run the service except for an internet connection and a PC, Mac or laptop.
Another area of interest was focused on mobile technology and how it will change the playing field. Undeniably the mobile phone is the tool, which will become the ultimate User Interface for Hoteliers and Guests alike and any company that fully understands this technology is a good one for a candidate to investigate.
Last but not least, Mark discussed social media and its impact on every facet of technology. As candidates look to hospitality AbouttechInfo technology companies as a possible target for employment, make sure that the companies have a good plan in place on how they will use social media to market their brand as well as their products.
Today, we agree that we are dependent on technology but yet most people generally feel uneasy about technology. One subconscious reason most people who afraid the technology are understood to have is that with the use of technology they feel enslaved to some outlander influence
There are two general reasons for people fearing AbouttechInfo the technology. First reason is the gross lack of understanding of the scientific and technical aspects of our day-to-day technology. The other reason is the flawed personal-belief of people that the advent of technology has marked an unwanted intrusion in their otherwise natural world.
Even though it’s mostly subconscious but those who fear technology must understand that the augmentation of technology AbouttechInfo is only natural. So much so that fearing the technology is actually fearing ourselves. We need this whole fear of technology to cease immediately.
One reasoning for this fear of technology is that https://abouttechinfo.com/ human psychology is to fear that which it cannot control. However, what needs to be understood is that no matter how advanced or developed it is technology is still lifeless. It cannot do – and does not do – anything that it’s not made to. Technology is harmless as it is completely controlled by humans.
