Whether struggling to find talent in a competitive hiring landscape characterized by numerous skills shortages, or facing greater pressure to improve how they hire, onboard, manage and compensate current talent, many businesses are unsure of the best way forward. Moreover, today’s HR professionals are often overburdened with administrative work, relying on outdated or manual processes to conduct key HR tasks.
