Key highlights

Cloud is just a tool

Investing in cloud technology, along with improved data and analytics programs, are the most common HR initiatives among organizations. 69 percent of organizations said they looked forward to better functionality and 63 percent expected a greater ‘value add’ to their business from HR.


Strategic transformation takes HR from ‘steward’ to ‘strategist’

Despite expectations for Cloud HR, the majority of benefits being realized with existing cloud HRMS implementations are more tactical in nature. 24 percent reported that Cloud HR is delivering greater value, while only 20 percent reported the HR function is becoming more evidence-based via workforce analytics.


Intelligent change management is not optional for success

Implementing cloud technology to drive transformation is not simply a ‘plug-and-play’ strategy. A well-planned change management system must also be in place to help ensure enterprises are meeting expectations for improvements and progress.


You need to be bold to complete the journey

The HR transformation journey needs to begin with a clear vision of a desired end-state. Effective transformation is an opportunity for organizations to be bold, to better collaborate and to better leverage their people, processes and data insights to succeed.
