HR Sytems


It’s all about the setup

HR System implementation is as important as the selection itself.

You’ve selected the perfect HR system, and you’re keen to get cracking, but that is easier said than done.

Your team are busy with the day job.
They haven’t implemented this system before.
They don’t know every aspect of your business.

Engaging an experienced project manager can pay for itself in blood, sweat and tears.

Key project stages

01 Strategy
Start with the HR and organisation strategic plan for the next 2-5 years

02 Review
Review the current HR systems set up. Understand whether what is in place can meet the strategic and operational needs now and in the future

03 Identify any gaps
Assess where a lack of functionality will jeopardise the ability to meet the strategic goals

04 Documentation
Analyse the capabilities of the current systems and review the risks

05 Recommendations
Offer considerations for next steps – investment in the current platform, additional platforms or a complete overhaul and selection of a new HRIS

06 Key criteria
Collation of key criteria to guide the chosen outcome to ensure that, whatever the decision, the future system set up will be able to meet the needs of the HR team and the wider organisation

What We bring

Expertise. We’ve done this before, lots of times. HR Systems implementation is our speciality, and we bring our experience and passion to your project.
Product knowledge. We have implemented a myriad of HR Systems in many different ways, so know all the ins and outs of each system.
Process. We know what needs to be done and in what order, meaning your system is implemented as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Troubleshooting. There’s nothing we haven’t seen. We can avoid problems as well as solve them as they arise so it doesn’t slow things down.
Challenge the status quo. Just because you’ve always done it a certain way, doesn’t mean that’s the best way. We are process-driven, delivering what will have the strongest impact without being weighed down by what went before.
Integration. We know how your system works with all the other systems, and departments, to make sure it works across the whole organisation and everyone feels the benefit.
Dedication. Our project manager will be dedicated to you and your project from start to finish, giving you consistency and confidence.
