New human resource (HR) practices that are embedded into employee workflows and easy-to-use mobile applications are poised to dramatically reshape where and how people work, according to the most recent observations from Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
These are among the 10 top disruptive HR technology-related trends that appear in “HR Technology for 2015: Ten Big Disruptions Ahead,” a new report unveiled today at the HR Technology Conference and Expo in Las Vegas.
Such workflow-embedded HR practices and mobile applications will allow employees to learn on demand, share work experiences in real-time, update goals on-the-go, and provide real-time data that ultimately can help leaders make better management decisions, according to Bersin.
In the report, Bersin highlights additional disruptive, technology-related developments for HR and business leaders to consider in planning their technology roadmap for the year ahead.
“The HR technology market, which is now more than $15 billion in software alone, is exploding with growth and innovation,” said Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte.
“One of the most disruptive changes is the trend toward automating HR practices and integrating systems, making them so easy to use that people think of them as part of their daily life. By embedding and automating HR practices into applications employees use every day, HR ‘systems of record’ are becoming ‘systems of engagement.’ At the same time, these systems give leaders the real-time information they need to adapt to changing business and labor conditions.”
