The Business Of Talent: 2016 Recruiting vs. HR Trends

Even though the cost of implementing new HR technology is high, companies with new, recently upgraded HRMS platforms are spending 22% less per employee on HR, so they are seeing financial benefits.  More than 40% of all companies are replacing or plan to replace their core HRMS systems.  These new HRMS systems are cloud based, and they are coming from vendors (Oracle, SAP, Workday, ADP, Ceridian, Ultimate Software, and others) that have mostly built-out talent management suites.  Erica Volini, Deloitte’s service line leader in HR Transformation and Technology, explained clearly that there are no “best products” in this space – it’s all a matter of where you’re coming from, where you’re going, and the vendor who’s roadmap best matches yours.  The LMS markets is being disrupted by new video-based learning solutions, many of which will be complimentary to installed systems. There are a host of new, disruptive recruitment vendors who are clearly going to change the applicant tracking market.
