Tech Rising

HR Technology

Whilst adoption of HR technology varies throughout the Asia-Pacific region, an expert says it only has one place to go: up.

By Debbie Bolla

With the Asia-Pacific region undergoing intense economic and business change, it’s no wonder that organisations are seeking to update their technology systems in order to earn a competitive advantage. 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. Mehul Rajparia, vice president of APAC for SaaS talent management solutions provider Lumesse, has a unique perspective on the market and shares his insights here.

HRO Today

Thought Leaders Unite

HR Association

By D. Zachary Misko

Thought leaders are the informed opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise. They are trusted sources who move and inspire people with innovative ideas, turn ideas into reality, and show how to replicate their success. We certainly have a great group of thought leaders and innovators involved in our association and our HRO Today Forum events, as demonstrated by the outstanding group of senior HR executives, thought leaders, and industry experts who attend and speak at our events, in our magazine, and in our association.

The HRO Today Services and Technology Association is a global association of the top HR experts working in roles as practitioners, providers, and analysts. Whilst the Forum is an excellent opportunity for our members and each of the Forum delegates to participate in thought leadership through great conversations and best practice sharing, the association allows you to continue these actions daily. If you are not already a member of the HRO Today Association, I urge you to join and keep the conversation, connections, and learning active every month.

HR Technology Across the Globe

HRO Today

By Debbie Bolla

Technology has been and continues to be a big driver of change in all areas of business, and HR is no exception. HR technology has the ability to streamline processes, attract candidates, predict attrition, plan for the future workforce, and importantly, engage employees. But adoption rates vary across the globe, and a new study from ServiceNow, The New CHRO Agenda: Employee Experience Drives Business Value, finds that CHROs in Europe are slower to invest in platforms that improve the employee experience whilst HR leaders in the Asia-Pacific region are facing such fierce competition for talent, they have no choice but to up their game.

Some country-specific findings provide further insight into the regions:
