Book Description

Businesses operate amid a digital age, and unsurprisingly, technology has engendered tools that now predominate all corners of the workplace. The ascendancy of new hardware and software poses new challenges for professionals in the field of management and human resources as corporations and companies routinely implement and incorporate digital software for goals such as improving worker productivity and tasks such as screening highly qualified candidates for vacancies. In the face of rapid change, professionals must investigate how the use of digital technology affects the culture of hiring processes, employee morale, company management, and corporate image. This book aims to promote research related to these new trends and open a new field within the areas of management and engineering. Through the course of nine chapters, contributors to Management and Technological Challenges in the Digital Age grapple with the theoretical and practical implications that technological usage carries across the range of small and large organizations in the world of business.

  • Shares knowledge and insights on an international scale
  • Keeps the readers and researchers informed about the latest developments in the field and forthcoming international studies
