#Nextchat: What Do HR Professionals Really Think About HR Tech?

 

 

If you were to ask an HR professional which component of their HRMS they could live without, they’d probably have a hard time answering. In a world where greater emphasis is being placed on strategy and analytics, HR is increasingly relying on technology to automate tasks, increase effectiveness and reduce errors. From talent acquisition and employee self-service to communications and compliance tracking for a global workforce, technology now touches every aspect of our workforce and workplace.

Workforce technology vendors are continuously developing revolutionary new solutions to make HR’s job easier. And, for the most part, this works! Millions of HR professionals install or upgrade to new systems every day and are successfully using them to power organizational performance. However, others aren’t so lucky. If a system is not designed in a way that will meet an organization’s needs, deliver a desirable end-user experience or be adopted by all employees, what HR leaders had hoped would be an excellent investment can turn into an expensive experiment. Regardless of their experience, it’s important for HR professionals to stay up-to-date and understand the ever-changing world of HR technology to make informed decisions.

The 2019 Human Resources HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas will feature four jam-packed days of sessions and demos revealing new products that are revolutionizing the way HR professionals manage their worlds. According to conference co-chairman Steve Boese, “The marketplace for HR technology solutions has never been more innovative, diverse and dynamic—but at the same time has also become more complex and challenging for HR leaders to navigate. Our goal at the HR Tech Conference is to provide the best set of content and thought leadership, practical and actionable insights, and the ability to experience and learn about modern HR technologies from the world’s leading solution providers to help HR leaders make the best technology decisions for their people and their organizations.”
