Key Findings & Highlights
NelsonHall's market analysis of the multi-process HR services industry and multi-process HR services trends consists of 77 pages.
The current multi-process HR services market is declining due to the adoption of cloud based HCM platforms, with the modern approach to buying including an emphasis on either intelligent technologies or cloud based HR services.

Top drivers of the intelligent technology approach to multi-process HR services include improving process controls and driving efficiency, streamlining HR processes through automation to reduce process duplication, and obtaining greater transparency and visibility through advanced analytics. The top inhibitors include organizations seeking to address larger transformational issues first, and lack of buy-in from upper management.

With respect to the cloud based HR services approach to multi-process HR services, the top drivers include technology transformation to a more manageable model; lack of time, skills, or expertise to operate internally in a HR cloud environment; and improved compliance and risk management. The top inhibitors include a desire to ride out previous investments in technology, and the impression that cloud HR software is so intuitive that organizations can manage/operate it internally.

One characteristic of current buyers purchasing modern multi-process HR services is organizations which are ready for a major technological transformation to the cloud, often bundling other cloud based HR services in the deal.

The majority of multi-process HR services contracts focus on incorporating other HR processes outside the core bundle of payroll and workforce administration services, with an average of three services in scope.

Vendor developments around intelligent technologies include further RPA capabilities, machine learning, chatbots, and advanced analytics, whereas vendor developments around cloud based HR services include expanding HR service support offerings and launching technology tools/platforms to supplement cloud HCM platforms.
