HRTECH AND M&A

The M&A Trend in the HRTech sector is accelerating as digital transformation projects are starting up in recruiting, training, employee engagement, payroll and human capital management.

The key drivers behind this momentum include an increasingly tight labour market that places a premium on talent acquisition and a widening skills gap and generational shift that demands a new approach to today’s workplace.

Pursuing mergers and acquisitions (M&A) is an increasingly important strategy that can help HR Technology companies obtain skilled technology personnel and maintain a competitive advantage over their rivals.

HRTECH AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

The HR industry is fast becoming technology-centric with many companies and organisations utilising technology to elevate hybrid working and develop smarter management solutions.

Remote working and recruiting practices has contributed to record-breaking levels of deal-making in the HRTech sector as businesses look to invest in digital workforce management tools.

Some of the key digital trends in the HRTech industry include the introduction of payroll automation, the use of HR virtual assistants, workflow automation, AI-powered HR analytics and Augmented Reality (AI) and Virtual Reality (VR) for training and onboarding new employees.
