CedarCrestone 2010 HR Systems Survey


   I’d like to invite my contacts and readers of Strategic HCM to participate in Lexy Martin’s / CedarCrestone’s 2010 HR Systems Survey.

This is the 13th year of the survey, and although global in focus, it has previously tended to focus mainly on the US.  Lexy and I are hoping to involve more participants from the UK and Europe this year (participants should be from HR and IT management with knowledge of planned / existing HR technologies and from organisations in any sector but with over 500 employees).

The survey is a comprehensive research effort designed to provide organisations with important data to plan, justify, benchmark, and execute HR technologies. 

Questions cover:

  • Application adoption
  • HR software acquisition and deployment trends
  • "Going global" trends
  • The value of HR technologies.


All responses are anonymous and will be kept confidential. Information will only be used in the aggregate. The survey questionnaire is available online at www.CedarCrestone.com/hrssv86 and is open until 5 July, 2010.

The first 100 respondents completing the survey will receive a $5 Starbucks card (you may have to fly to the US to use it though?). Other incentives are outlined below*.

All respondents will receive an advance copy of the results in late September 2010. In addition, Lexy and I are planning a special webinar of results focusing on the European audience.

We appreciate your contribution to the most comprehensive collection of data focused on HR technologies usage and overall HR service delivery.
