Let’s get this out on the table.
There’s a major chasm between HR Technology vendors and enterprises who need a SINGLE EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE. It’s true, there’s no one-stop shop to make this easy - NOR DOES THERE NEED TO BE.
There’s a magnetic force that can eliminate the gap - the gap between vendors staring at the Employee Experience mountain ahead of them, wondering how to deliver it all, and the HR leaders who are responsible for executing it, who are also eyeing an uphill climb and looking around for their sherpa. The magnetic force that will draw these two together is a VISION. You cannot complete this work and deliver the beautiful, elegant, personalized, seamless and EASY employee experience you desire if you don’t have a digital HR vision that lays out the strategy to get there.
It’s the same mess we saw before Y2K: we have systems that don’t talk to each other, internal intranets that looks like link farms, and employees conducting disjointed transactions instead of experiencing a single, seamless journey.
