2017 Paychex Pulse of HR Survey: HR Gaining C-Suite Influence by Building Tech Capabilities


Most human resources professionals now have a seat at the table in the executive boardroom, and their use of technology has helped them get there. Four out of five HR leaders at small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) reported in the Paychex Pulse of HR Survey that their department is viewed as a strategic business partner.

More than two-thirds of HR leaders at companies with between 50 and 500 employees said they have moved beyond traditional administrative functions and are part of leadership conversations about business direction. What’s more, four in 10 leaders meet with the CEO or CFO weekly, while close to a third have access to top management when they need it.

And there's more. Want to know what else we found? Take a look at the results from our survey now.
