The mobile trend is revolutionizing human resources management. In fact, research shows that HR applications are twice as likely to be used on smartphones as on computers. Not surprisingly, mobile HR solutions continue to gain traction among businesses.
So, how do businesses benefit from going mobile with their HR?
1) Mobile makes employees more productive

This post is part of our TriNet Inspire series.
Los Angeles is a city full of ambition and creativity – and that was apparent in the 300+ entrepreneurs, small business owners and leaders who attended TriNet Inspire this week in Los Angeles.
Designed for small to midsize business (SMB) owners, leaders and HR professionals, TriNet Inspire also hosted successful events over the last year in both New York City and San Francisco.

Employee engagement must be more than something you do once and then write it off. If organizations want to retain talent, grow and succeed in today’s highly competitive marketplace, then engagement must be an active, ongoing system.
