Specifically, to use new and existing technology to become valuable to an organization. This involves learning new skills using Windows based software such as Sage 300c and Sage HRMS with possible integrations to electronic time recording using bio-metric clocks, electronic approval of timesheets by managers and staff, electronic record keeping of timesheets and approval for compliance, electronic HR files for full information on employees, electronic benefits administration and integration between all functions regarding human resources.

All these products are mainstream in North America. The skills acquired would prove very valuable to employees and employers.
