Paycor and Josh Bersin Release New Report “Why HR Technology Matters Now More Than Ever”

Report Uncovers How Human Resources (HR) Technology can help HR and Business Leaders in Four Key Areas: People, Data, Support and Growth

CINCINNATI – June 24, 2020 – Human Capital Management (HCM) company Paycor and global industry analyst, Josh Bersin, today release “Why HR Technology Matters Now More Than Ever.” Written by Bersin, this new report breaks down how HR technology, when combined with support of an expert partner, can transform a medium and small-sized business (SMB).

A 2018 study by Capterra found that 91% of business leaders with $100 million in annual revenue or less said HR technology was critical or beneficial to their business, yet only 57% were currently using it. At many SMBs, HR is taken care of by just one person or a very small team. The HR team might not have a legal department to help with compliance or an IT department to support the implementation of a new system. The right tools can help HR grow into a true strategic partner and help employee relations become more transparent. When a crisis hits, HR technology gives leaders the data, tools, and support they need to make decisions quickly.

This report explores the benefits of HR technology for businesses in four key areas:

  • Enhancing the employee experience through improved access to important information.
  • Transforming your business through real-time data to support decision making.
  • Providing critical, timely support for essential business functions, as well as compliance and unforeseen events, such as the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Facilitating growth of your business, leaders, and employees.

The report concludes considerations for evaluating HR technology solutions and three case studies from Dayrise Residential, Kendall Electric, and Lighthouse Youth and Family Services – all Paycor customers — on how the power of HR technology has helped them pay, hire, manage, and train their employees while giving them oversight into costs, productivity, and performance.
