Presentation Description

HR Technology Systems: Best Practices for Successful Implementations

Presented by Tom Sonde of SilverRoad Solutions

One of the selling points of online based HR software is that it’s easier to implement. It’s certainly true for the IT department. The same cannot be said for HR.

The IT department’s role is greatly diminished as they no longer have to worry about procuring hardware or installing and testing new software.  The result is minimal IT involvement leaving HR to take a leadership role in the implementation.

Surveys have reported that up to 70% of organizations are unhappy with their new HR system. While some of the blame should rightfully be directed at the software provider a significant portion of the issues can be traced directly back to an inadequate implementation.  There’s a lot more to a successful system implementation then simply letting your software vendor configure your new software. There are a host of things you, as the HR practitioner, should address.

This session will identify and discuss the keys to a successful implementation. It is non-technical and is designed to provide the HR practitioner with practical tips for implementing a new system.

What You Will Learn:

Why online HR System implementations are different

Why implementations fail, who is to blame and how to avoid them.

What are the key areas to focus on and how to address them.

How to marry process with technology and apply best practices

How to take advantage of delivered system functionality
