Philadelphia, PA – August 14, 2018 – SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today Magazine, and Alexander Mann Solutions, one of the world’s leading providers of talent acquisition and management services, have partnered to release the Human Resources New Technology Quarterly Summary: Q2 2018.
As the rate of advancement in the human capital management (HCM) technology sector is accelerating, these quarterly reports track and analyze recent trends, funding initiatives and other activities that support product innovation in HR. This information provides critical insights into new technology, its applications and the companies leading the HCM technology industry.
The robust rate of advancement in human resources technologies increased during the second quarter, with 57 major announcements documented, compared to 36 in Q1. Areas of development with notably high levels of activity included: mobile capabilities, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and platforms that facilitate communication between employers and employees/candidates. Just as companies have begun exploring uses for AI in various HR functions, mobile technologies can be leveraged in several areas as well, including recruitment and employee engagement.
“The statistics about mobile device usage worldwide are staggering. One-in-five adults in the US are ‘smart-phone only internet users’, which demonstrates how truly important mobile integration is to the hiring process,” said Beth Miller, Vice President – Americas, Alexander Mann Solutions. “Investing in mobile HR technology can help organizations reach candidates at the right place and time and streamline their entire journey from applicant to new hire.”
“Mobile technology can also play a role in employee engagement, giving HR professionals flexible and efficient tools to reach their employees whenever and wherever they are,” said Larry Basinait, Vice President of Market Research, SharedXpertise. “Mobile technology provides both HR and employees with access to data and resources in a convenient and easy-to-use manner.”
In addition to exploring key areas of technology development, the report provides a monthly breakdown of major product development initiatives, funding transactions, and mergers and acquisitions.
