Q4 2018

HRO Today

14th Feb 2019

SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today, and Alexander Mann Solutions, one of the world’s leading providers of talent acquisition and management services, have partnered to release the Human Resources New Technology Quarterly Summary: Q4 2018.

The purpose of publishing these new quarterly reports is to track and analyze recent advances in technology and in funding initiatives aimed at supporting product innovation in HR.  This information provides critical insights into new technology, their applications and the companies offering them in the human capital management technology sector.

With nearly 200 major announcements made globally, 2018 was a busy year for technological advancements in HR. Interest in Artificial Intelligence as it applies to HR technology is high right now, so it's no surprise that many of the announcements throughout involved AI technology.

The fourth quarter of 2018 saw continued announcements for advancing technologies in HR, with 56 major announcements noted in Q4. New products were the most common announcements, and many announcements were around funding for small or start-up organizations. 

Technology not only has huge potential to completely revolutionize the HR function as we know it—it already is. Michael Wachholz, President – Americas Region, at Alexander Mann Solutions, examines the impact of continued developments in this space and offers insight into achieving balance with tech in the workplace. 

"Anything that can be properly automated to drive value, should be. But we cannot fall into the trap of over-reliance on technology or allow ourselves to be dazzled by digital platforms alone.

Read the full article, HR Tech in 2019: the Human Element in the report. 

This report not only summarizes technology development activity for the quarter, but also includes a monthly breakdown of major product development initiatives, funding transactions, and mergers and acquisitions.
