2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Human Capital Management Technology

What investments will offer the strongest impact to business performance?

"Investing in people is one of the most important decisions any organization can make. To maintain long-term success, there is a growing need to find the most effective technologies in skills and talent alignment, employee experience and human-centric work design.

As per Gartner “The rising importance of employee experience has driven the progression of a number of related technologies. Notably, in 2022, the distinction is clearer between applications that can help organizations orchestrate their multiple fragmented systems (EXTech orchestrators and overlays) and applications that aim to enhance EX for frontline employees (frontline worker EXTech...). Other technologies, such as voice of the employee, HR virtual assistants, integrated HR service management and onboarding, are benefiting from enhanced EX orientation.

Human-centric work design is the organizational response to the requirements for more flexible and productive work in both remote/hybrid and on-site settings. This emerging approach necessitates technology investments in areas that help organizations understand and take action that affects individuals. These include workforce nudgetech, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), employee productivity monitoring, employee well-being and flexible earned wage access.”
