Over the last two decades of conducting our Annual HR Systems Survey, we’ve observed a very real transition in how organizations adopt, deploy, and value their HR applications. Originally enterprise software was implemented to automate cumbersome, paper-based processes—back office tools meant to have little or no interaction with employees.
