22 December 2016 / January 2017 Elearning! THE "SIERRA-CEDAR 2016-2017 HR SYSTEMS SURVEY" TRACKS TRENDS IN HR AND LEARNING PHILOSOPHY; AND IN TECHNOLOGY SELECTION PURCHASE AND IMPLEMENTATION. BY JERRY ROCHE We are now embracing an era when both enterprise and personal technology options are improving almost by the day. So several important considerations must be taken into account to help decide how our organizations will respond and benefit from new HR and learning technologies. Among them: how overall strategy, corporate culture and existing technology will play into future plans. STRATEGY: Strategy is both a key component when it comes to a technology environment and a significant opportunity; for instance, more than 40 percent of organizations are looking at improving or developing a new enterprise HR systems strategy this year. This is a key issue for most organizations. For large organizations (more than 10,000 employees), the goal is most oen to transform the technology environment, creating a more modern architecture that can support new user experiences, mobile access, and full-data analysis requirements. Research has shown that organizations are taking multiple pathways forward and are leveraging this opportunity to rethink their enterprise view of HR technology. Among mid-market (2,500 to 10,000 employees) and small businesses, HR technology adoption has become a key to success. Organizations with higher-than-average HR technology adoption in these categories saw almost double the revenue per employee, and a 12 percent increase in their overall HR, talent and business outcome metrics. ese organizations also are 75 percent more likely to be viewed as strategic partners by their business leaders, and they are 10 times more likely to be in the top 10 percent of organizations when it comes to social responsibility initiatives. CULTURE: ree specific HR outcome models — talent-driven, data-driven, and top- performing organizations — can alter decisions. In a world of constant digital change, organizations need to completely rethink their perception of technology investments. In today's Cloud-based environments, organizations have shown that continuous change management models improve decision- making across the entire organization. 2017 HR Technology Trends
