Human capital management (HCM) is an £18bn industry that you’ve probably never heard of. It's an industry dominated by clunky, old-fashioned software and low expectations. As far as user experience (UX) is concerned, much of the industry is firmly rooted in the past.
In a recent survey by industry expert, Fosway Group, 80% of human resources (HR) professionals identified UX as major reason for making the move to a new supplier of HR software.
As millennials and members of generation Z enter the modern workplace, a poor UX for enterprise software is no longer acceptable. A digital experience that matches those outside of the workplace is fast becoming an expectation and a right.
I will share my journey as a UX team of one at Kallidus, an HCM software company. I’ll show you how I successfully embedded a culture of user-centred design in an organisation where developers had been designing its software for years.
