Why Read This Report

Human resource management (HRM) applications range from essential tools to hire and pay employees and administer benefits programs to strategic components for assessing and developing talent. More than ever, enterprises now encounter a dynamic, diverse, and geographically dispersed workforce, creating a need for applications that support substantially more effective and proactive HRM strategies. Forrester has identified 19 HRM applications that reflect the breadth and diversity of this ecosystem of applications and related services. Established vendors seek to provide a more comprehensive array of HRM applications, leading to more acquisitions and vendor consolidation. Smaller, specialized vendors, however, represent an important force of innovation in HRM as social and collaborative technologies appear more prominently in the future.
