Last year’s report turned up some pretty interesting results:
- 78% of respondents in 2020 believe the impact of COVID-19 gave HR a more assertive ‘seat at the table’ in leading decision making in their organizations
- Last year’s top HR priorities included supporting the digital transformation of the workforce and adopting next generation HR approaches
- 56% of organizations cited employee engagement and advocacy as the top measure of success for their HR strategy in 2020 – is that still the case?
With so much change happening in HR tech today, incredibly fast-paced innovation, and huge financial backing and investment, how do you know what tools and platforms to invest in and what your priorities should be?
Now in its seventh year, the annual HR Realities research conducted by industry analyst Fosway Group, helps provide a valuable independent barometer of what’s working for organizations in practice.
With an average of over 500 participants annually, this research informs HR professionals and the wider HR tech market year on year. UNLEASH has supported this research since its inception and I have personally seen it support key investment and planning decisions in organizations worldwide.
Respondents receive priority access to the results as well as the opportunity to discuss the data live with Fosway analysts later this year.
David Wilson, CEO of Fosway, told UNLEASH, “There has probably never been more need for us to provide up-to-the minute data and real-world insights into the realities of HR tech. The pandemic has put HR firmly in the spotlight and the goal of this research is to support people leaders and professionals in making informed decisions around their strategy and investment by providing a real, independent and relevant picture of HR today.”
