Pandemic-Induced Supply Chain Disruptions to Dent Industry Growth

The short-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global talent management software market size is multifaceted, depending on the distinct end-user impact. Organizations are negatively impacted by the pandemic as they have been compelled to decrease their workforce, thereby reducing hiring operations. The global adoption of talent management technologies has been hampered by these guidelines. During the COVID-19 pandemic, HR departments have faced a number of issues, including ensuring optimal business operations and monitoring employee health.

Additionally, HR teams have to provide support to allow employees to work from home and review and enforce legal changes regarding payroll and sick pay. Due to the decline in capital spending, HR's workload has increased significantly. This factor will have a negative influence on the deployment of talent management solutions for the time being.

Furthermore, organizations are projected to focus on adopting advanced technologies to advance business operations and decrease costs following the COVID-19 issue, which would likely generate profitable prospects. Furthermore, owing to several advantages, AI-enabled platforms are projected to be in high demand in the near future.

Acceptance of Cloud-based Talent Management Solutions to Foster Growth Potentials

As a result of digitization, organizations are generating vast amounts of data, exerting pressure to exploit that data to obtain competitive advantages. To turn massive data into relevant insight, agencies are increasingly adopting cloud-based solutions. In talent management, it is proving to be a key competitive advantage for key players.

Organizations are transitioning to cloud-based software due to the flexible payment and plan options. Additionally, the availability of customized packages is based on the time of operation, the number of users, and other parameters. For Instance, In March 2021, IBM OpenPages introduced cloud-based data privacy management software which allows enterprises to solve emerging data privacy concerns.

This aspect reduces the software price and makes it more accessible to small enterprises. As a result, cloud-based solutions provide organizations with a customized model customized to their needs, including analytical functions and talent management capabilities. The emerging adoption of technologies can be considered a talent management market trend.


Streamlining Hiring Process through Technological Adoption to Boost Growth

One of the important factors driving the market's growth is the increasing penetration rate of cloud-based platforms, as well as the use of mobile-based personnel management systems. Organizations and HR professionals are increasingly using software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms to automate scouting, identifying, and recruiting new talent from talent pools, as well as retaining existing personnel. A TMS can also help streamline the hiring process, reinforce workplace culture, provide flexible learning opportunities, and identify top performers. Various technical breakthroughs, such as the use of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), are also contributing to the expansion of the economy. For Instance, In June 2021, Trakstar, a SaaS-based employee engagement and performance management company, announced the unification of its previous modular offerings into a single Trakstar Platform. Trakstar Hire is now accessible for better hiring, Trakstar Learn is now provided for faster onboarding and employee development, and Trakstar Perform is now accessible for ongoing performance tracking and engagement.

 Furthermore, prominent players are introducing various talent management solutions that aid in staff management and give proper development opportunities for employees. As a result of the increased need to optimize HR operations, talent management software has become more popular among companies.


Limited Awareness of Solutions among SMEs to Hinder Growth

Although data and analytics have long been used to inform business decisions, most companies still have a long way to go in order of talent analytics. A lack of understanding of the benefits of talent management software is one of the major factors hindering the talent management software market growth. Furthermore, the costs of talent management in terms of resources, time, and money can be significant. Talent management necessitates the use of tools to map out talent requirements at all levels of the organization, which can be expensive. Small and medium businesses (SMEs) find it difficult to invest in advanced technologies due to their limited resources. As a result, limited enterprise adoption of talent management technology will stifle market growth.
