Indian Companies Adopting Tech To Simplify HR Processes
One of the most innovative uses of technology in the human resource function is coming from the Indian market with more than one in every three organisations implementing or planning to implement a new Human Resource Management System. India is also far ahead of the rest of the world in adopting mobile technology to deliver HR.
A recent survey shows shows that 85% of organisations in India have or plan to adopt a HR portal and 78% report it as being an effective way of meeting intended objectives.
There is also an increasing mobile usage in HR transactions such as leaves, employee directory and time and attendance. The survey shows 44% of organisations in India are using or considering using mobile technology, which is higher than their APAC counterparts.
However, the survey revealed that many key HR processes in India – particularly talent management related processes – are still manual/paper based, leaving room for further leveraging technology in these key processes.
Going ahead, companies in India will focus more on automation of talent management and HR in the medium term.
