Use of modern HR technologies can help India Inc improve productivity and save millions of dollars by optimal use of human resources, say experts.
India commands a nearly $600-700 million slice from the global pie of $54 billion human resource technology market. Even though HR technology is still nascent in India, it has already achieved a base of $0.5 billion according to a research by Everest group. Tremendous forces are radically reshaping the workplace which are leading the companies to change their traditional human resource (HR) processes to new technology driven methods.

Chief People Officer of PNB Housing Finance Anshul Bhargava said that in his company, the adoption of appropriate technology has enabled it to design focused programmes.
