Will HR Be "Disrupted" in 2016?


Consumerized HR technology, mobile apps as a new HR platform and the emergence of ERP providers to expanding talent management are three of the most important HR technology disruptions coming in 2016.

This from Josh Bersin, principal and founder of Bersin by Deloitte.

About consumerized HR technology, Bersin says, “Many HR applications are becoming tools for employees first, enabling them to better manage people, learn and develop, and steer their own careers.”

About using mobile apps as a new HR platform, he believes that “companies may need to ‘appify’ their HR tools” beyond making them simply mobile-enabled Web applications.

Finally, Bersin says that consolidation of some of the largest ERP providers has not stunted the growth of that sector. “A new generation of vendors is emerging, threatening once again to disrupt the incumbents. And a new category of vendors — focused on tools for employee engagement, wellness, human and people analytics, and culture assessment — has also entered the market.”

Bersin by Deloitte has a new, 18-page whitepaper that fully examines seven more of these future changes. The PDF-formatted paper is titled “HR Technology for 2016: 10 Big Disruptions on the Horizon.”
