As we look ahead to 2020, the future of human resources has already become abundantly clear.
The “people experience” takes on unprecedented importance and value. Technological innovations align, streamline and optimize service levels on an international scale. Routine administrative tasks continue to reap the benefits of automation and self-service options in highly secured online portals. Sophisticated human capital management (HCM) solutions will be pervasive in enterprises of all sizes.
Yes, this HR outlook has its roots firmly entrenched in today’s trends. The “promise of cloud” and “one truth” – with fully integrated HR systems – has already arrived. Related best practices bring the advantages into sharp focus along with stronger privacy controls and regulatory compliance standards.
To help illustrate the opportunities, realities and expectations, we developed this HR 2020 guide that also covers keys to successful business process outsourcing (BPO) partnerships.
There’s plenty to look forward to in the HR years ahead, as well as no shortage of concerns and challenges, including shifting workforce expectations and an increasingly gig-oriented economy awash in dynamic mobile demands. These are progressive yet daunting circumstances, to say the least.
Where’s Your HR Transformation Today?
Companies that delay modernizing their HR functions, however, have a lot to lose and nothing to gain by waiting. The time to act is now.

Milestones Worth Celebrating
2020 will be a milestone year for Zalaris – our 20th in business, focused entirely on HR, HCM and payroll solutions throughout our history. These are our core competencies, all powered by one common IT solution with harmonized processes.
Such distinctions enable our customers to focus more intently on their own products and services…what ultimately differentiates or creates competitive advantage for them. That’s among the rewards we both derive from partnership. It’s a collaborative process with clearly defined milestones and ROI at every juncture.
To sum it up, we are more than ready for HR 2020 today, and we will continue to work hard at improving every aspect of what we do until then and beyond!
