The Evolution of HR Systems: Improve Processes, Make Work Easier

A recent article from SHRM discusses the evolution of HR systems of record over the last decade. Author Josh Bersin says,

The future of HR software is now very clear. We need to build and buy systems that make work easier; make life better; and help us learn, give feedback, collaborate and get aligned. These new systems are built as mobile apps, they require little to no training, and they are so engaging you can use them while standing in line at the coffee shop. If your new tools do these kinds of things, you're in good shape. However, if they're "easy to use" but not very "useful," you probably have some work to do.
