State of HR Technology: New SilkRoad Research Indicates Steady Progress but Key Gaps Hamper Results

Improvement Needed in Integration and Meeting Millennial Needs

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - July 22, 2015) - The 2015 HR Technology Report released by SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based talent management solutions, indicates slow but steady progress in the use of talent management technology with gaps in integration and responsiveness to Millennial needs. This annual report reviews research results on HR technology advancement, including adoption trends, integration and data effectiveness.

While use of HR technology and data continues to grow, the report describes progress as "evolution, not revolution." Top priorities for HR teams focus on adding more applications and better integration of existing talent management solutions. The biggest gaps include a lack of critical analytics and meeting millennial technology needs. In addition to explaining these trends, the report provides 9 action recommendations to help HR organizations optimize their technology use.

The 2015 HR Technology Report includes survey responses from a wide range of talent management professionals. A live webcast on July 22 will review the report in detail as well as key takeaways to enhance technology results and business impact.
