- HR management has been "under siege" for at least the past two decades, as HR leaders and executives have had to choose from a wide range of always-changing options in getting their HR technology strategy right. And there's little indication it's getting any easier, according to VentureBeat.
- Whether it's recruiting, scheduling, learning, benefits, retention, onboarding or many of the other HR functions and processes, there is a "sea of innovative software platforms and vendors" out there to sort through, VentureBeat reports.
- After illustrating a range of logos for the dozens and dozens of HR-related software providers, VentureBeat differentiates how large and small employers face their HR tech decision-making. For example, a simple, cloud-based scheduling tool may suffice for small employers, while their larger brethren will requires a full-blown HCM suite of applications offering workforce/talent/learning management functionality.
For so many HR leaders, HR technology remains an enigma. For example, trying to decide whether the cloud is a better option, something many take for granted, is even open to debate. The basic idea of ensuring there is a good plan in place, that due diligence has occurred, is a smart strategy. And most of all, ask a potential vendor for a list of customer contacts, to see if they are satisfied, before committing to new HR technology.
