New Year, New Trends: HR Technology Plans for 2017

Date: Available On Demand

Duration: 1 hour, 1 minute

Each year, Sierra-Cedar conducts the longest running HR Systems Survey in the industry, tracking the adoption plans, deployment approaches and outcomes achieved from today’s HR technologies. Join Stacey Harris, vice president of research and analytics, and Erin Spencer, research consultant, as they share insights for 2017 HR technology plans and strategies gathered from more than 1,500 organizations around the world.

2017 is the year in which HR focuses on the integration of Strategy, Culture and Technology. When talent is short, competition is growing, and regulations are constantly changing — HR’s focus is shifting rapidly from process to outcome driven technologies. Small and Large organizations alike are reshaping their technology expectations, forcing vendors to go beyond simply moving their technology to the Cloud — and instead focusing on next generation of technology. 

During this webinar, Harris and Spencer will discuss these forward-looking HR technology topics:

  • The connection points between HR Strategy, Technology and Culture for 2017.
  • The evolution of HR service delivery models based on increased service expectations.
  • The impact of moving to next-generation HR technology environments.
  • The future of HR technology: platforms, intelligent systems and social responsibility.
