10 Pains Wreaking Havoc on Your HR Department

Creating a Compelling Business Case for a New HR Solution

In today’s tough business environment, businesses have to be very competitive with respect to products and services and focus on saving money at the same time. In the battle for sales and customers, the victors will be the companies using their resources to the fullest, especially their human resources. Outdated and convoluted HR technology can mean disaster for a company seeking to make employees more engaged, develop a strong enterprise culture and values, and streamline recruiting and hiring practices.

The costs and time and effort involved in upgrades and maintenance for old on-premise HR solutions can be a concern. Additionally, out-of-date HR software increases the chance of inaccurate data, and can hamper the ability to create real-time reports. It is vital to ensure access to real-time information to make more informed, proactive human resources decisions faster, meaning nimble business processes and agile technology solutions are also important considerations when selecting HR technology.

In this white paper, learn how to create a strong business case for an accessible and data-driven human capital management (HCM) solution that will help your company both today and into the future. Read more about the many obstacles facing HR and payroll teams in the current business environment, and how the new class of HCM/HR features can help overcome them.  Read More

The Big Picture: A Comprehensive Approach to Talent Management

Talent management is an ever-evolving challenge for HR professionals. Acquiring the best talent from the largest candidate pool in history is a difficult task, and competition is fierce, while the traditional performance review cycle is no longer adequate for evaluating the roles and needs of employees. Managers must ensure that not only are they able to find the right individual for the job, but that they are also proactively retaining, engaging, and preparing top performers for leadership roles.

Meanwhile, talent demographics are changing dramatically. In 2015, members of Gen Y, or “millennials”, will outnumber baby boomers in the workplace for the first time. Generation Y employees thrive under adaptive talent management that utilizes social collaboration and recent technological advances, something that talent tactics of the past may not be adapted to.

Talent management is thus more complicated than ever, and it’s no wonder HR professionals need help to find the right people with the right skills at the right time and keep them engaged. Talent management systems can help HR professionals create and sustain a competitive advantage. This white paper looks at some factors for talent management success in today’s challenging talent landscape, including how talent solutions can leverage business intelligence and analytics to create and sustain a competitive advantage. Read More
