On-the-go tech allows HR and employees alike to easily take care of daily tasks.
By Simon Kent
Artificial intelligence and automation are set to have a huge impact on business and the workplace. For HR, however, the tech in people’s pockets could be more game-changing. The oft-heard phrase, “There’s an app for that,” has permeated the function, leaving HR directors with the task of working out how these potentially useful solutions can benefit their business.

Tech strategies that create workforce efficiencies while engaging and exciting candidates and employees alike.
By Marta Chmielowicz
Today’s HR leaders face the challenge of becoming a top talent destination, building the workforce of the future, and providing critical insights to key decision-makers. They must manage enterprise-wide digital transformation efforts, introducing new capabilities to better attract, retain, and engage talent—all while improving operational efficiency and enabling a more agile way of working.
Technological innovations and generational demands are poised to transform the way work is done in 2020 and beyond.
By Emily He
The future of work has been a hot topic in recent years, fueled by a barrage of technological advancements impacting nearly every industry and organization. Business leaders far and wide are being pushed to innovate or risk falling behind—and HR leaders are no exception. New developments in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and chatbots are shaking up the landscape for HR, raising concerns around automation and job displacement while forcing teams to adapt to changing employee expectations and evolving workplace norms.
Integrating global payroll and HR systems can lead to greater accuracy, better security, and lower costs.
By Judith Lamb
Ask the world’s leading global companies about their greatest asset, and most will respond with “our people.” At the same time, attracting and retaining top talent remains a top concern among executives, according to The Conference Board’s C-Suite Challenge 2019 research. That is why HR departments across the world are trying to enhance the employee experience at every turn. But in doing so, these teams are so focused on serving the day-to-day needs of the workforce that they occasionally overlook otherwise obvious opportunities to improve the function overall. Case in point: payroll.

We all grew up listening to the story of David and Goliath. This is a tale of how a young shepherd boy volunteered to face the hulking giant champion of the Philistines one hot day in the Valley of Elah. The triumph of David has become part of cultural lore and religious canon, and has given rise to modern verbal clichés. The problem I usually have with this particular story is that even though David won that afternoon, the smart money in the Valley of Elah was still on the big guy.
That parable leads me to this year’s Baker’s Dozen for Talent Management Technology. This year’s ranking features several large companies, including Workday (a challenger brand 10 years ago, but a Goliath-type today), SAP SuccessFactors, and iCIMS. They are being stack ranked based on three indices: size of deal, breadth of features, and most importantly, quality of service. Smaller firms, including GR8 People, BrightMove, and Hireology, are also in the survey.

HR leaders predict how cultural, social, and technological shifts will impact the way people work in the coming year.
By Marta Chmielowicz
Not too long ago, HR professionals were relegated to the realm of “personnel management”—paper-pushers responsible for administrative tasks and little else. But as organizations have grown and globalized in increasingly challenging environments, so has the role of human resources. Today’s HR departments are deeply rooted in organizational planning and business strategy, more essential to the success of a company than ever before. HR leaders have made their way to the C-suite, guiding strategies that unite the goals of a business under one umbrella: talent. From helping employees navigate their careers to delivering data and analytics about business performance, their contributions are numerous and multi-faceted. And that is only the beginning.
