Staying Bold: How HR Can Unlock Human Performance in Any Context

Through the extreme disruption of the past three years, organizations showed remarkable innovation and experimentation. HR led the way in transforming work models, boosting accountability for employee well-being and equity, and expanding the boundaries of what leaders previously thought their people, systems and technologies could achieve. HR leaders now face a critical question: How can they build a new, sustainable path forward to extraordinary talent impact without the extraordinary circumstances of recent years?

Join us at one of the top HR conferences as we discuss emerging ideas and deliver actionable insights to help HR leaders unlock new dimensions of human performance. From HR technology & management to CHRO effectiveness, we will explore a variety of HR conference topics at the Gartner ReimagineHR Conference 2023.

HR Technology Planning Imperatives for The Future

HR leaders face numerous challenges in 2023 and beyond, such as talent shortages, difficult economic conditions and limited budgets. The Gartner research below, based on a survey of 138 HR organizations, provides insights on the future of HR technology and how HR leaders can utilize HR tech to face these challenges head-on. 

In addition, Gartner ReimagineHR Conference is a great way to discuss these challenges and find various solutions. By attending one of the top HR conferences globally, you get the opportunity to gain tailored insights from Gartner HR experts and other HR leaders like you. 

1. With a faltering global economy, HR technology leaders must anticipate greater demand for measurable outcomes to justify new investments and their wider technology strategies. As a result, the top 3 priorities for HR technology transformation are: better business outcomes, headcount and skill growth, and cost optimization. Buyers will find investment in HR technology can deliver desired revenue growth and growth in headcount and skills. However, cost optimization will be more challenging and will depend on where the organization is on its cloud HR journey.

Gartner recommends that wherever the organization is on its cloud journey, it should not move to the cloud to find cost savings only. While cloud deployments can avoid large capital expenditures that come with on-premises deployments, they still require high operating costs and full-time equivalents to manage them. HR leaders should move to the cloud for reasons such as increasing scalability, reducing need for manual intervention or embracing the innovation offered by cloud services.

2. The top hurdle for HR leaders is HR technology adoption by employees and managers. Without adoption, technology provides zero value while incurring ongoing costs. Moreover, employees who reject an HR technology spend time finding workarounds, which leads to work friction and inefficiency.

Gartner recommends that HR technology leaders actively drive adoption of the technologies they introduce. This requires the application of user feedback to improve the technology incrementally and it requires changing management’s digital maturity. Also, HR technology leaders must focus on using data to improve the related resources and the process flows of the most frequently used technologies.

3. 75% of HR leaders expect their HR technology to be consolidated around a core cloud human capital management suite by 2025. With only 15% of respondents indicating they planned to host at least some applications on-premises by 2025, we are long past the halfway point in the transition from on-premises to cloud. *

Gartner recommends that as on-premises applications approach end-of-life, HR leaders make immediate plans to migrate to the cloud to deliver business transformation and reduce risk.

Only 43% of survey respondents said their employees are satisfied with the HR technology operated by their organization. * This is not a high satisfaction rate considering the time, cost and human effort put into purchasing and implementing these technologies. This dissatisfaction mainly results from a suboptimal user experience.

Based on conversations with our clients, Gartner recommends these solutions for HR leaders to prevent low end-user adoption:

  • Properly aligning employees’ needs and preferences with HR technologies
  • Clearly communicating the change and value of HR technology, so employees don’t have technology awareness
  • Developing a robust change strategy or internal marketing campaign for newly implemented technology
  • Including employer and manager input from the technology selection process
  • Streamlining the process to fit the new product or deploying a product that can accommodate the existing processes

By attending the premier HR leadership conference, you get opportunities to network with Gartner experts and other HR leaders and discuss a variety of HR conference topics.

39% of HR leaders independently set up their own HR technology strategies with support from IT. 45% indicated shared leadership and decision making between the HR and IT departments.* HR is the expert, with the necessary HR and business process insights. However, HR is not likely to have all the skills and knowledge needed to define a holistic HR technology strategy. IT has technological expertise and can validate whether the HR technology strategy is viable at scale.

Gartner recommends that HR leaders have clearly defined roles between HRIT and IT. IT support is important but no longer needed in every step of HR digital transformation. Both HR and IT should be mindful of their respective roles in each task.
