10 Disruptive HR Technology Trends for 2016
The transformational changes taking place across the HR technology landscape have the potential to provide CIOs with better tools for managing the people side of their IT organizations.
Imagine a human resources application that runs on employees’ smartphones, recommends nearby people with whom they can network, helps to boost their productivity by evaluating their time management, offers suggestions for improving work-life balance, and provides targeted, on-the-job training. It may even share exercise and healthy eating tips when and where employees need them.
This scenario illustrates the consumer-focused direction of HR technology, one that centers on employee productivity and engagement. Given the strides vendors are making to provide those capabilities, they may become reality for large enterprises sooner than many executives think, according to a new report from Bersin by Deloitte, “HR Technology for 2016: 10 Big Disruptions Ahead” (registration required).
