More than 60% of respondents claimed that investments in HR Tech have increased the profit share. But 26% of the survey participants said that investment in technology has led to additional investments to maximize from HR tech implementations.

The Next Big HR Technologies to Invest

A lot of investment will take place in Robotic Processes Automation (RPA). Companies will heavily invest in AI/Cognitive analytics and Predictive analytics. However, investments in Chatbots will be reduced.

The survey went to analyze the technology that has created maximum impact to make recruitment more agile and efficient.

HR leaders should constantly experiment with new HR tools and technologies. They need to rethink and redefine their HR practices in keeping abreast with emerging and evolving technologies. Also, organizations need to leverage HR technologies to their advantage if they want to win the war of talent.
