The last three years have been abnormal for almost everyone on this planet, and very different from what we expected in 2019. The pandemic had a dramatic impact on our lives in 2020 and 2021, while 2022 has been dominated by the war in Ukraine. During these times, HR has been challenged with radically different tasks and 2023 will continue to pose new challenges.
CEO of CatalystOne, Avtar Jasser, reflects on 2019 and looks ahead to the coming year – and decade – in HR tech. Changes and developments in HR and HR tech in 2019 HR is about gradual change, and the really noticeable changes happen over longer periods than a single year. While larger companies have been adopting HR systems over the past few years, it’s now time for smaller companies to act on their need for proper HCM platforms. We also see that bigger organisations are beginning to understand that a solid platform for HCM doesn’t always fit with the point solutions they have in place or are considering. If this sounds familiar, it’s worth investigating systems that are specifically built to support integration.
Having recently surpassed the first revenue milestone on a 5-year growth plan, increased the number of employees by 100% in 2017 – and at the same time managed to be ranked as Norway’s 6th best place to work on their first attempt – Nordic HCM leader CatalystOne Solutions has had a tremendously good year.
HR has spent a little bit longer than let’s say finance or CRM getting up to speed with technology to propel their field of expertise into the era of digitalisation. But over the past couple of years we have seen HR taking giant strides to catch up. What kind of technology will Nordic HR executives pay most attention to in 2018?
I don’t know if it’s me or the industry in general, but every year seems to go by quicker than the last one – and 2017 was no exception. Let’s take a moment to catch our breaths and reflect on what we have experienced and what developments we have seen in the HR industry throughout 2017.
