Course Description

One of the biggest projects that any HR professional will ever get involved with it the selection and implementation of an HR software system. It is also probably the riskiest one as well!

 History and experience in past years have shown a high level of failure in that either the wrong systems were chosen in the first place or they weren’t implemented to best advantage.

 The presenter's task for many years has been to reduce the margin for error in selection, and he has always located the eventual winner.

 This series is designed to give you the tools to enter the selection task with confidence.

This is plenty of accompanying colateral in e-book format, along with summary Top Five Tips, and some questions – and exercises – that you may care to try to check out what you’ve learned. The full deck of slides is also available, presented in .pdf format.


What will you learn in this course:

HR technology is an essential part of the department's armoury; as well as providing a single source of truth, an HR system is the repository for workforce data vital to business decision-making.
