I don't think the future will be modeling the uber model in an HR world.

I believe the continual use of Big Data will give us business information like we have never seen and based on that the use of human capital. I am already seeing early signs of it in the world of healthcare which is where I work.


I like the App idea, and this could work for small to mid sized companies. For the bigger fish, I'm sure internal counsel will not appreciate it nor will HR administrativors

Round C financing was for $285M, led by Google Ventures with TPG as the ride-along. Total funding to-date for Uber now $307M. Big valuations come from totally disruptive advances in service or product delivery. Uber is an awesome concept with even better execution. I use them twice a week, at least.

As to the Uber of HR, I like how your idea of on-demand HR advice for consumers fits in with the growing "free agent" framework that high performers work in. Good idea KD!



Nice thoughts, innovative too !!!

On-demand Smart Service Desks are really effective and reducing query resolution cycle time.

Uber of HR - seems to be workable at least in knowledge industry.


Hi Kris! As someone who has used the Uber service in New York I love the melding of these two ideas, and I also love your insights on the industry. I use UltiPro (from and I am always curious about the future of the HR industry, along with HCM and everything else that businesses can use to grow, strengthen, and increase efficiency! I do wonder how HR could be fashioned into an app-style of management for tracking big data.

I just discovered your blog, I love your conversations! :)

Hi Kris,

I loved your post, showing the exact pain points. Seems like what we did for oursourcing HR counseling with
Platform is using online live video technology, which you get the recording after a call.
They help cv screening and recruitment, everything is transparent companies choose their own HR experts suitable. Companies get the video recording of the interviews.
Also the experts are helping candidates to improve their interview practices. They can use these interview practices as an online video resume, they are already made by HR experts.
