TEC 2015 HCM for Midsize Enterprises Buyer's Guide


The midsize enterprise is not a uniform concept. It takes several forms that require different levels of software capabilities and robustness. In particular, the human capital management (HCM) software requirements of smaller midsize companies (100–1,000 employees) and larger midsize companies (1,000–5,000 employees) vary considerably. Some vendors specialize in one of these two major segments, while others offer reduced versions of their enterprise class solutions to smaller mid-market clients.

This buyer’s guide examines the high-level features and functions offered by HCM software providers that target midsize businesses. It discusses how different HCM solutions make more or less sense to midsize companies according to the number of people that they employ. It focuses on the importance of core HR functionality and best practices for growing other HCM areas within a company, such as talent management, learning management, or workforce management. The discussion is based on a review of the current literature and conversations with both vendors and end users.

This buyer’s guide specifically examines HCM strategy and supporting software solutions for the various scales of midsize enterprises; what smaller midsize companies can learn from larger midsize companies, and vice versa, in terms of best practices, core HR processes, and beyond (i.e., talent, learning, and workforce management); and innovative HCM technologies and how they benefit a company’s HCM strategy.

HCM for Midsize Enterprises



The midsize enterprise is not a uniform concept. It comes in many forms that require different levels of software capabilities and robustness. Discussions on human capital management (HCM) led by both software vendors and users typically distinguish between smaller midsize companies and larger midsize companies. But where do we stop talking midsize small and begin talking midsize large? At which point does an organization’s perception of itself change from fitting the smaller scale of the midsize range to fitting the larger midsize scale in this range? And similarly, how do HCM technology vendors define and respond to the nuances of the midsize enterprise spectrum?

When vendors attempt to orient their strategies and products to fulfill customers’ business needs, they base this on the knowledge that companies of different sizes have different expectations. HCM software vendors typically classify companies according to the number of people they employee, as this indicates the number of users of the HCM software within a company, and segmenting customers by number allows vendors to better predict and address their customers’ HCM and needs.

However, organizations tend to put the weight on this vendor-based categorization, as vendors usually have their own perception of company size that doesn't correlate with how other parties view size differentiations. For instance, some vendors classify a 250-employee organization as a small to medium business (SMB), while the organization itself may think of itself as mid-size. This can create tensions between vendors and customers, as, for example, a vendor may offer minimal functionality for SMBs, while the 250 employee organization may be looking to develop fairly elaborate talent management strategies.

Most mid-size organizations follow similar standards and processes to run their human resources (HR) operations and strategies, as the principles and core functionality remain the same across organizations and they can work with already existing business best practices. However, functionality requirements vary from one industry to another and, moreover, from one company to another (even within a given sector). For instance, a high tech company with 1,000 employees is more likely to need talent management to attract and retain highly qualified engineers than a retail company with the same number of employees. In the case of retail organization, optimal scheduling ranks higher in priority.
