“To help you better prepare your organisation for changes in the HR world, we’ll talk about the most important HR tech trends in 2022.”

The day some of us thought would never come has arrived; the day we transition into the post-COVID-19 world.

As is true for most transitions, this one requires a number of adjustments for everyone involved. For instance, HR leaders now need to break old mindsets to adapt to the change.

Gone are the days when HR always assumed that employees were most productive only when in the office. We can now use digital technologies to enable remote work.

To help you better prepare your own organisation for changes in the HR world, we’ll talk about the most important HR tech trends in 2022.


1. The Rise of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence or AI has been getting bigger and better every year. We’ve seen its use in everything from genomic research to search engines, so it’s not very surprising that it’s in HR too.

Among other things, some programs now use AI to automate key HR processes. These include things like analysing employee performance data for assessing prospective employees.

AI is also used now in HR chatbots and virtual assistants. These not only allow HR teams to get a better measure of employee sentiment but help provide better employee support.


2. Real-time Employee Data

Real-time data is huge. It is the timely employee data and analytics, which can contribute to smarter decisions.

More and more front-line managers want to get data on their people for this reason. A growing trend is for managers to put people at the centre of operational decision-making.

Real-time data strengthens managerial capacity. Paired with AI, another rising trend in HR software in Singapore, it can lead to quicker pattern identification.


3. HR Tools to Assist Hybrid Working

The hybrid work model is here to stay. It’s not just that many employees prefer it – it’s also that a lot of organisations have found it to benefit productivity.

It helps HRs a lot. That’s because a big part of employee experience relies on employees being able to get quick responses from HR and other leaders.

Cloud technology, a key feature in most HR tech now, enables this. Cloud-based HR systems even permit parties to get instantaneous receipts and updates on mobile.


4. Companies Investing in Employee Wellness

One of the most important shifts in the workplace has been in how businesses view mental health and well-being. 

Nowadays, more people understand how vital these are to employee productivity, satisfaction, and of course, business success.

Because of this, people now think that companies have a responsibility to look after employees’ mental health. In a survey cited by the Harvard Business Review, 91% of respondents said company culture should support mental health.

The same article notes that good mental health at the workplace contributes to lower attrition rates and higher productivity. 

So, it’s unsurprising to see how many companies are now trying to provide for it, whether in the form of company counselling or subsidised therapy.


A Last Word on 2022’s Top HR Trends

It bears noting that most of these trends are more or less interrelated. 

Real-time employee data synergises with AI for better insights. Employee wellness programmes are being integrated with hybrid work setups to account for the displacement people feel in new systems.

You can even find some HR software that makes use of elements from all four trends. Adaptive Pay’s all-in-one solution is a good example, facilitating nearly all of them.

So, if you want to simplify your HR processes while staying abreast of the latest HR technology, look into tools that acknowledge these new processes and developments. Try Adaptive Pay, to begin with!
