Top HR Software Trends for 2022

Happy New Year from the whole Workzoom team! Our fingers are crossed for a brighter 2022. When it comes to HR software this year, we’ve got a few predictions we’d love to share.

Consolidation is key

The last ten years have brought an explosion of Cloud solutions for every single administrative process imaginable. There are best-of-breed solutions for everything from Applicant Tracking to Scheduling to Time Off to Talent Management to Payroll. We went from paper to the Cloud. Now everyone has a million and one logins OR fussy integrations between products.

Forbes has also pointed out, the last two years have placed an enormous burden on HR having to adapt and comply with fast-changing rules and regulations. 2022 will bring a pursuit of streamlined consolidation. One product and one login for everything. People will sacrifice a few bells and whistles of best-of-breed for an all-in-one solution. A solution that can handle everything from hire to retire.

Security takes top priority

Security has always been a consideration when looking for software, but this year it’s going to take top spot. The ransomware attack of a major HRIS vendor at the end of last year was a major disruptor for several organizations that lost time tracked and struggled with getting accurate pays to their employees. How and where data is stored and backed up is going to be a major priority for companies this year.

Workzoom is committed to providing the highest level of security for our customers. We have implemented a multi-tiered approach that includes:

1. Secure Infrastructure: Our servers are hosted on Amazon Web Services with dedicated firewalls and intrusion detection systems in place, regularly monitored by our IT team. All data is encrypted at rest, ensuring your data remains secure even if it were to be accessed externally.

2. Data Access Controls: We use role-based access controls to ensure only authorized personnel can access customer information, with audit logs tracking all user activity. We provide multiple levels of user authentication, including 2FA and MFA, as well as role based access control for additional security. See how Workzoom uses authentication best practices.

3. Continuous Monitoring: Our Security team continuously monitors our systems for any suspicious activity and uses automated tools to detect potential security threats. 

We are committed to protecting the users of our application, and the privacy of our clients data (as defined in the Workzoom Privacy Policy) .

Cloud-based efficiency shines

It’s clear that automation of administrative processes saves time and money. Also, it's clear that over the last 2 years the way we work has changed, dramatically. According to HBR’s Our Work-From-Anywhere Future, workers believe the freedom to work from anywhere is an important benefit of their job. Requesting a day off can no longer be accomplished by popping by your HR managers desk on break.

The transition to working from home means companies need a simple and easy way to take care of day-to-day administration. Employees need a simple way to update personal info, or request time off. We empower organizations by visualizing company goals and activities through our employee self service. All-in-one solutions that store personal details and process common life events have gone from nice-to-have to must-have. HR software is the way of the future. If you are stuck without a solution you will be left behind.
