The year 2020 has challenged HR leaders like never before. They have had to respond to the many complexities of the COVID-19 pandemic, while also fueling efficiency, building culture and managing teams. Technology has played a major role in helping HR leaders adapt and overcome workplace challenges.

In this webinar, we’ll review the findings of the 2020 Paychex Pulse of HR Survey, and The Report for The State of Today’s HR Tech Stack 2020. This event will uncover emerging technology trends that are impacting HR today.

One common theme is that technology and automation are no longer just used for operational functions such as payroll and data storage, but for “soft” initiatives that are more human and intuitive: engaging employees, creating a healthy workplace culture, and reinforcing trust and transparency through better communications. For many companies we surveyed, the HR tech stack is no longer just a set of disparate tools, but a technology ecosystem that permeates all aspects of company culture and operations.

We’ll discuss:

  • Using continuous feedback tools to keep employees engaged and connected
  • Driving productivity with self-service and mobility
  • Managing, tracking, reporting data needed to meet compliance obligations (Compliance)
  • Using data and analytics to make more informed, proactive decisions (Analytics)

We’ll also cover some general principles gleaned from the Paychex Pulse of HR Survey, such as the importance of analytics, the evolving role of the HR professional, areas of investment, and the future of HR.

In short, this virtual event will provide a snapshot of today’s HR tech stack and current HR trends, challenges, and opportunities in an unprecedented era where this is no rulebook.
