HR Tech – modern apps for employee engagement

HR applications globally have reached a point of maturity, where basic capabilities of managing records of an employee life cycle is now considered passé. On-premise or cloud HR applications for managing an employee from a core HR standpoint, including pushing admin tasks to self-service, is a “given” for any HR application. Being ‘system of records’ has traditionally been the forte of HR IT systems.

HR community today expects to go beyond basic business process automation to actively engaging an employee. The definition of engagement spans from redefining the ways an organization builds a connection with a potential candidate for hire, to making the whole employment experience in the company an engaging and inclusive one. HR applications of the day need to become part of an employee’s work life end to end.
