HR has come a long way in becoming a strategic player that adds a lot of value to the business. Functional work has been almost eliminated to avoid complexities. Manual tasks have been replaced by automated processes, reducing errors and time. All in all, 2016 has definitely been excellent for HR practices. However, 2017 is going to be even more exciting.
While we saw organizations give more importance to organizational efficiency, workplace wellness and employee well-being, all this is only going to accelerate in the coming years. Efforts will be made towards improving employee engagement, bringing in more flexibility, boosting career growth and planning.
HR has always been slow in adopting technology to find, screen and recruit new talent. This trend has already started to change and 2017 is going to see an improved adoption of the latest technology.
