REBA Technology Research 2021: How reward and employee benefits systems and data are evolving

Use of reward and benefits technology is growing across all areas as employers strive to provide better data reporting, improved personalisation of employee communications and upgrading the functionality of systems across all benefits areas. Over half of respondents to REBA’s 2021 Technology Research, brought to you in partnership with Buck, will focus on improving MI and data reporting in the next 12 months.

Findings show that the data from tech isn’t being used to its full potential by employers and that's limiting their ability to offer a more tailored benefits experience. In fact just 6% of respondents use data for advanced predictive analytics, while 60% use it for basic descriptive reports.
