Celebrating 15 Years of the CedarCrestone HR Systems Survey


To celebrate 15 years of conducting the CedarCrestone HR Systems Survey, the longest running survey on the state of adoption of HR technologies and the value achieved, we are offering the following to those who fully complete the survey (We love VERY complete entries!):

  • The first 100 respondents will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card
  • The 15th respondent will receive a $100 Visa gift card
  • The 150th respondent will receive a $100 Visa gift card
  • The 1015th respondent will receive a $100 Visa gift card
  • ALL respondents will be entered into a drawing to receive a FREE Benchmark service conducted by Lexy Martin, survey author. Oh shoot. More work for me, but I do love doing benchmarks to enhance organization’s decisions about their HR systems strategy and portfolio.

The 15th anniversary CedarCrestone HR Systems Survey, in addition to its thorough tracking of adoption and value achieved of 30+ HR technologies, will also review adoption and deployment trends over the past 15 years and provide a forecast for the next three years.  I enjoy doing the 5, 10, and now 15 year surveys as they afford an opportunity to see how far we’ve come. And sometimes it’s surprising that we’ve not come further!

We believe this coming year is an inflexion point for three areas:

  1. The switch from upgrades of the core system of record to replacements
  2. A stronger than ever focus on integrated talent management as an equally key technology that also drives workforce contributions
  3. An increasing impact from all things social and mobile

From our results, we will create an updated HCM technologies blueprint to sit alongside the blueprint provided for the past five years. Oh goodness — more work! In addition, the survey will begin tracking three new or recharged technologies of projected importance to HR: big data,  collaborative knowledge sharing (aka electronic content management), and work management software. We will also answer the question of just how pervasive is social, mobile and analytics enterprise HR technologies?

Do you think we’ve got it right? What else would YOU like to know?
