“Digital HR and evolving technologies have completely disrupted how organizations must evaluate, prioritize and build the case for change for HR technology investments” said Michael Stephan, HR Transformation Leader, Deloitte Global. “Our clients seek advisors with the collective wisdom and experience to help them navigate these choices. Our sustained leadership position in HR Transformation, combined with our continuous innovation in Digital HR strategies and solutions, has further cemented our ability to guide our clients through all facets of their HR technology initiatives.”

“We are delighted that ALM has recognized our unique combination of research, experience and vendor relationships” added Brett Walsh, Human Capital Leader, Deloitte Global. “As the HR technology landscape continues to evolve, we are committed to continuing to develop new services, solutions and products to help our clients find ways to extend and optimize the value of their HR technology investments.”

According to Liz DeVito, ALM lead analyst for HR Consulting Research, “Deloitte stands out not only for the depth and breadth of its HR technology advisory capabilities, but also for the combination of research, experience, and innovation it brings to bear on the client’s challenges beyond pure technical aptitude. The attributes most frequently mentioned by clients include Deloitte’s long-term vision around HR technology as an enabler of HR and business transformation, as well as the firm’s ability to simplify the complexity of the HR technology ecosystem so it not only transfers knowledge, but also drives critical thinking that allows stakeholder groups to reach consensus more quickly on roadmap strategies and vendor selection.”

The report lays out the opportunities and challenges for HR Technology Advisory Services providers focusing on market trends, client spending forecasts, and the provider landscape, and includes profiles of select key firms.

ALM defines HR technology advisory services as consulting related to the adoption and use of technology to manage HR service delivery. According to ALM, “While a providers HR technology implementation capabilities are relevant in that they add depth and insight to advisory capabilities, HR technology advisory services are specific to the assess-design-build components of the HR technology services value chain.”
