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.

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.

Perfect Together

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.

Case in point: payroll.

CEO’s Letter: Why Goliath Lost

HRO Today

By Elliot H. Clark

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.

The modern HR team has become a hybrid function where humans and machines work together in a seamless, efficient, and effective relationship. But enabling a corporate culture that welcomes these technological innovations and managing the change management process into the digital era can be challenging. Here, Jade Clifford, Executive Director of RPO EMEA at Allegis Global Solutions, shares her insights.

Digitalisation

From the impact of digitalisation to the changing role of the HR function, four HR leaders share their key priorities in the new world of work.

By Simon Kent

Rarely has the HR function faced such a time of upheaval and challenge. Caught within a rapidly changing world and facing disruptions ranging from digitalisation to demographic shifts, HR managers and directors are looked to for support, direction, and solutions for their business’ most important asset: people. Yet even with an increasingly important role in the workplace, the transition from HR directorship to board-level status cannot be taken for granted. Here, leading HR directors tackle pressing questions in order to prepare for the future of HR.
