Emerging technologies are part of every industry and making waves in some. This interesting information came to us from Human Resource Executive in their article, “3 emerging technologies HR should pay attention to next year.”

One area of business that is benefitting from the advances in these technologies is human resources (HR). Recruiting, benefits management and workforce distribution are all made better by the insights derived from technologies like augmented analytics.

Augmented analytics can help HR leaders go beyond a dashboard and deliver easy-to-understand insights on pressing data-related challenges faced by HR teams such as prioritization, data literacy and scalability.

Another emerging technology proving itself critical for HR leaders is prediction capabilities driven by machine learning and advanced analytics. These enable greater processing and help to deliver insights that inform scenario and adaptive planning. This makes it easier for everyone to respond better to rapid change, which is inevitable.
