Our weekly roundup of deals, product announcements and other HR technology news.

Listen to a podcast of our roundup.

Remote and hybrid-work arrangements have changed work culture, said research from HR platform provider BambooHR. The company found significant disconnects between frontline employees and leaders on various aspects of culture, and said many employees are considering quitting their jobs because of culture concerns. HR professionals are also feeling the strain: Nearly a quarter of HR managers (22%) said remote work has caused them to spend most of the workday on tasks they dislike or hate.

Pandemic-related regulation and market conditions remain top concerns for 2022 for board members and C-suite executives, according to Protiviti and North Carolina State University. Looking ahead to 2031, business leaders cite workforce and talent-related issues as their primary concern, indicating that the impact of the “Great Resignation” will persist as their organizations struggle to fill the talent requirements supporting their strategies. Disruptive innovations and the adoption of transformative technologies requiring many organizations to upskill and reskill their workforces, as well as to attract and retain top talent, will bolster talent as a chief concern over the coming decade.
