ISG applies expertise, market data and design-thinking to help organizations navigate their unique journey to engage employees and managers in the delivery of high-quality HR services and experience.
Nearly half of all HR transformation is focused on deploying technology levers – an integrated HCM, employee experience and workflow tools, or automation with chatbots, RPA or AI software. The other half concentrates on service delivery levers that
redesign processes and roles carried out by shared services, centers of expertise and business partners.
