Year end is always an opportune time to look toward the future. As such, we wanted to share our perspective on 2016 technology trends in HR technology.Based on feedback from customers and partners, the rise of millennials in the workplace, and a shrinking labor pool, we expect employee engagement and retention to continue to be the #1 priority for HR. Market sentiment seems to agree. A CareerBuilder survey conducted earlier this year found that 60 percent of CEOs believe that their companies have not been able to reach their full potential because they don’t have enough qualified talent on board. The same survey also revealed that a growing talent gap has top executives increasingly relying on HR leaders for innovative business strategies rooted in data.
In our opinion, all of these factors will significantly impact HR technology, resulting in 2016 being a year of “technology firsts.”
