Tomorrow’s HR technology environment will be cloud based, mobile enabled and data driven. However, research shows organizations are taking multiple pathways to transform their own HR system environments, with a mixture of rip and replace, combination, hosted, outsourcing, and hybrid strategies. Facilitated by Stacey Harris, senior HR technology leaders will offer insights on the key findings from the 19th Annual Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey, as well as provide commentary on how each high-performing organization is achieving its own critical outcomes through HR technology. They’ll also share knowledge about HR technology deployment models, adoption strategies, vendor satisfaction drivers, implementation best practices, resourcing and investment goals, approaches to analytics, and practical uses for emerging technologies. You’ll leave knowing how to develop your own annual HR systems strategy to plan for the future.
