Couple this with an increasingly mobile and contingent workforce and HR leaders are having to work harder than ever to deliver a coherent end-to-end employee experience.
Any analysis of HR technology suppliers reveals a market that is currently buoyant, innovative and expanding faster than it has done for almost a generation. So, what technology tools can HR practitioners expect to support them through such an era of volatility? Is it all about waiting for the bots to take over, or will technology deliver in more subtle ways?
