LAS VEGAS, Oct.
8, 2014 — New human resource (HR) practices that are embedded into employee
workflows and easy-to-use mobile applications are poised to dramatically
reshape where and how people work, according to the most recent observations
from Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. These
are among the 10 top disruptive HR technology-related trends that appear in “HR Technology for 2015: Ten Big Disruptions Ahead,” a new report unveiled today at
the HR Technology Conference and Expo in Las Vegas.
workflow-embedded HR practices and mobile applications will allow employees to
learn on demand, share work experiences in real-time, update goals on-the-go,
and provide real-time data that ultimately can help leaders make better
management decisions, according to Bersin. In the report, Bersin highlights additional disruptive,
technology-related developments for HR and business leaders to consider in
planning their technology roadmap for the year ahead.
technology market, which is now more than $15 billion1 in software alone, is
exploding with growth and innovation,” said Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by
Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “One of the most disruptive changes is the
trend toward automating HR practices and integrating systems, making them so
easy to use that people think of them as part of their daily life. By embedding
and automating HR practices into applications employees use every day, HR
‘systems of record’ are becoming ‘systems of engagement.’ At the same time,
these systems give leaders the real-time information they need to adapt to
changing business and labor conditions.”
By weaving many
HR processes into employees’ daily workflow, solution providers are making it
easier and simpler for people to update their status, find their benefits,
locate other skilled people, find and take courses, assess job candidates,
complete onboarding for a new job, and set or monitor goals.
“Think about goal
management,” Bersin said. “Our research shows organizations that revise their
goals quarterly or more frequently are nearly 50 percent2 more likely to have
above-average customer satisfaction and 65 percent3 more likely to be effective
at controlling costs than those organizations that only revise their goals once
per year. So why wouldn’t the HR system facilitate this agile, continuous goal
management process? Many startups are now focused here.”
While the shift in
the purpose of software from “systems of record” to “systems of engagement” may
be the most profound issue impacting HR technology today, additional disruptive
trends include the following:
