Like their colleagues in the C-suite, chief human resources officers are under increasing pressure to add value to the enterprise. As senior executives elevate their expectations for a more strategic partnership, CHRO’s are looking to answer two very important questions:

  1. How do I transform HR to become a strategic role at the executive table versus a workforce administration function?
  2. Do senior executives understand the technologies and tools required to elevate HR to a more strategic level?

For four years running, PwC has conducted an extensive survey of executives from more than 300 companies about their organization’s use of HR technology and how it is facilitating the agenda of the strategic CHRO. Their 2017 Global HR Technology survey shows that cloud adoption continues to dominate and drive the HR technology landscape.

In a recent webcast, Innovating for Tomorrow’s Workforce, PwC provides an overview of survey results that address the accelerating trend of moving from on-premise applications to the cloud, reveals why organizations are making the move, and shares cloud satisfaction rates. Some of the stand out findings include:

  • 73% of responding organizations have at least one HR process in the cloud and nearly 50% already run core HR applications.
  • For those still using on-premise applications for core HR, nearly one-third are actively planning their migration to cloud.
  • Top motivations to use the cloud for HR processes are software innovation and quick releases (70%), less dependence on IT (50%), and lower cost of ownership (44%)

Innovative cloud technologies help HR leaders address issues and capitalize on opportunities that drive efficiencies and insights for a more strategic HR approach.

Tune in to the on-demand webcast to learn more about these opportunities and your peer’s perspectives on moving HR to the cloud.
