#HRISchat May 20: Deciding on the Right HR Technology Path

#HRISchat Session 21
Deciding on the Right HR Technology Path
Tuesday, May 20, 2014


In case you missed it, findings from the CedarCrestone 2013–2014 HR Systems Survey noted a big shift was underway: more organizations are replacing their core HR technology products instead of upgrading their existing systems. SHL’s 2013 Global Assessment Trends report noted that fewer than 1 in 5 HR professionals are satisfied with their information systems’ ability to manage talent data; and research from McKinsey & Company cited that the average technology investment delivers less than half of its anticipated value. With all that, it is easy to see why the development of a smart HR Technology plan is vital to the growth of an organization.


But you have to take stock before you make any big decisions. What are some key things you need to keep in mind as you create this technology roadmap? What kind of legacy applications would you have to deal with? How much will any upgrades cost the organization? What about all this buzz around cloud and SaaS?

To help address these questions, we are excited to be joined by industry thought leaders, Paul Rasieleski, Corporate HRIS Manager, FM Global and Wes Wu, Managing Consultant, Knowledge Infusion/Appirio and author of the systematicHR.com blog. In addition to guest moderating this session of #HRISchat, Paul and Wes will be presenting ‘Deciding on the Right HR Technology Path’ at the 2014 IHRIM Conference.

This session of #HRISchat and the conference presentation will benefit anyone who is considering or attempting to define an HR technology path and isn’t sure how to go about it.

Here are the questions:

Q1: What are some key things you need to keep in mind as you decide on the right HR technology path?

Q2: What are the biggest barriers to the development of a smart HR Technology plan?

Q3: When does it make sense to get new HR Technology vs. upgrading your existing systems?

Q4: What are the benefits of developing an HR Technology plan for your organization?

Q5: How will technology shape HR Technology plans over the next 12 months? 2 years?
