By HR Tech Outlook | Wednesday, November 27, 2019

Today’s technologically-driven age will completely change HR and the leaders must be ready to adopt the HR tech trends.

Fremont, CA: Human resources are centered on people, but it does not mean that technology cannot be integrated into the HR operations. Technology is already playing an integral part in administrative tasks, recruitment, job analysis, and employee relationship management. Automation and AI are just the tip of the iceberg of the latest tech innovations used in HR regularly, whereas there are HR tech trends in the coming years that the HRs must acknowledge.

1. Creating a Tech Mindset

AI is already in every landscape. With AI-infused HR tech applications, functions such as sourcing, selection, feedback, and performance management are performed. Thus, preparing the workforces for the future should be the focus of organizations because AI-driven technology is inevitable in the future. Consequently, the organizations must train the workforce to create a mindset that reinforces technology as something that makes lives easier or a pro-technology mindset among employees.

2. Continuous Learning

With technological advancements, the jobs are going to be dynamic and are most likely to change completely in the near future. This signifies the significance of a continuous learning mindset. For organizations, this signifies that they need to develop a culture that thrives on creating knowledge and sharing. While specific job-related skills will remain relevant, more transversal skills will become necessary. With the automation of mundane chores, organizations need to be prepared to handle more complicated tasks. Soft skills such as excellent communication skills, problem-solving, ability to be a part of the team, and time management become essential.   

3. Recruitment tech

Over the years, recruitment has not changed. However, in 2018, the market witnessed the growing use of AI in recruitment, which focused on stronger diversity hiring, expanding the gig economy, chatbots, and more. While a few of the trends from 2018 are still relevant, trends like collaborative hiring i.e., referrals and internal mobility, hiring generation Z, and the growing importance of recruitment marketing have taken place in 2019. These trends were technology-driven.

Technology is advancing at breakneck speed, and HR leaders must be prepared to accept trends that are short-lived or long-term. The next step in hiring can be virtual reality, which can be used for interviewing, real-life job previews, meetings, and onboarding purposes. Thus, the workforces should be ready to adopt such cutting-edge technologies.
