According to the report, human resource (HR) technology adoption also results in better control and systematic record keeping with payroll and compliance tech yielding up to 80 per cent in cost savings.

According to the report, tech adoption in core HR (administration, payroll and compliance and HR analytics) is over 75 per cent in 10 out of the 14 sectors surveyed, while, sub function HR Tech adoption is 75 per cent or more in banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), business process outsourcing (BPO)/information technology enabled services (ITeS), e-commerce and telecommunication sectors.
