UPDATE: The contest has ended! The winning HR trend is ::drumroll:: Digitization! HR teams everywhere are focusing on taking advantage of technology to streamlines processes, increase efficiency and improve the employee experience.
The results from Round 1 of our bracket challenge are in! But first, a little back story. Just like this year's college basketball teams, HR’s hottest trends are going head-to-head for HR’s attention (and budget). We asked you to rank 8 of the hottest HR trends to determine the final four, and they are...
1. Agility and productivity
HR needs to be just as efficient as other departments. That’s why they must take new approaches that streamline processes and reduce time spent on non-strategic tasks.
From paper files to electronic files. From phone calls and office hours to on-demand service. HR will be better by going digital.
It's standard practice to have an HRIS. Now, HR must complement this technology with tools that help deliver exceptional employee service.
Determine the final two!
Complete your bracket below by ranking the final four trends (listed above) from most important (1) to least important (4). We'll announce the final two going to the championship round on Wednesday, March 14. Then, we'll narrow it down to one winner on Friday, March 16.
Conducting user research to build innovative HR technology solutions
September 27th was a big day for the Design and Product team at PeopleDoc. We visited the Shared Services Center of one of our customers. It was an opportunity for us to see our users at their workplace, talk with them and see how they use our HR technology solutions. Visits like this are always a great source of inspiration and insights. They allow us to better know the people we design for. But let me explain to you why knowing our users is so important and how it allows us to build better products.
With 59 sessions, 400+ vendors and 9,000 people, you’re going to experience some degree of FOMO at HR Tech. Since you can’t do it all, you have to make sure you do it right. Here’s a list of tips for getting the most out of the show and the events you don’t want to miss out on:
Here at PeopleDoc, I’m responsible for our Employee File Management and eSignature applications. Along with my colleagues on the Product team, who are in charge of other applications, we receive a lot of feedback about how to make our HR SaaS product better. Receiving feedback and feature requests is very valuable for us. We’re a relatively young company, still with a startup mindset, providing something new, an "HR Service Delivery Platform," and as a result our roadmap is strongly based on the conversations we have with our clients. However, for the person who submits the request, it can seem as though it’s not worth the effort if it doesn't lead to a change in the product.
