Expanding into new international markets is fraught with difficulties. From aligning cultures to ensuring talent gaps are filled, multinational organisations can struggle to adapt to the norms and realities of their many areas of operation. But with the shift of economic activity from Europe and North America to markets in Africa, Asia, and Latin America comes a renewed need to manage global organisations. In fact, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, 400 midsize emerging-market cities, many unfamiliar in the West, will generate nearly 40 per cent of global growth over the next 15 years.

In fact, Sierra-Cedar’s 2016–2017 HR Systems Survey finds that more than 40 per cent of Asia-Pacific organisations are looking to improve or develop a new enterprise HR systems strategy. These strategies include increasing technology budgets; adopting additional technologies beyond payroll and core HRMS; upgrading to cloud-based services; and investing in analytics, mobile, and social applications.
