Advances in the latest technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and predictive analytics, are facilitating the integration of HRM solutions with analytics. At the same time, startups are developing mobile applications and collaboration software that can provide employers and employees with the flexibility to access the required information on the go. On the other hand, the use of predictive analytics is helping in deriving inferences regarding continuous employee progress through various charts and infographics. HRM solution providers are focusing on all these evolving technological trends and aligning their software solutions with the changing requirements of customers. The development of such advanced solutions bodes well for the market growth.

Remote working is turning out to be the new norm in the wake of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, market players are investing in R&D activities to provide HRM solutions that are efficient and easy to deploy and can potentially support the remote working model. Meanwhile, as remote working becomes the new norm, key market players, such as Oracle Corporation, SAP SE, Workday Inc., and UKG, are upgrading their existing solutions in line with the evolving trends and have started offering their products over the cloud as part of the efforts to annul the need for periodic system upgrades. All these factors are expected to contribute to market growth.

Remote working practices are prompting small and medium enterprises to opt for the latest HRM solutions so that strategic decisions can be made efficiently. The popularity of HRM solutions among these organizations is growing in line with the strong emphasis they are putting on talent acquisition and workforce planning to address the challenges associated with retaining human capital. On the other hand, large enterprises are scouting for a single solution for addressing all their HR requirements. Major market players, such as ADP, Inc., have already introduced robust HRM solutions to cater to the requirements of large organizations. Workday is offering a COVID-19 vaccine management solution that combines real-time HR data with immunization information, thereby providing organizations with the insights and resources needed to help in ensuring a healthy workforce and a safer workplace.
