When an organization undergoes a transformation in HR, such as moving to a shared service center model or implementing a new HRIS, the time it takes to realize the project’s value seems endless. Many are multi-year projects, utilizing significant resources across HR, IT, and business unit leaders. It’s no surprise that enthusiasm for a transformational initiative can wane quickly.
What if I told you there was a quick way to generate results right now? What if you actually have a secret weapon for transforming HR in just a few weeks? What if I told you the answer was an HR Service Delivery platform?
A recent SHRM article outlined 4 initiatives for HR leaders in 2017. The specific 2017 goals discussed in the article are common among organizations I speak with, and improving HR service delivery could help your team achieve these goals in a very short time. For example, is employee engagement at the top of your 2017 list? Change how employees engage with HR by giving them a personalized knowledgebase for self-service. Free them up from spending time on HR tasks so they can focus on their work.
Interested in increasing HR productivity? Give HR the tools they need to get the job done, like a user-friendly case management tool or process automation so HR doesn’t have to spend time on routine requests and manual processes.
Undergoing a digital transformation? A modern HR Service Delivery platform gives your employees the consumer-like digital experience they have come to expect from their technology. You don’t have to wait for a new HRIS to be live to deliver this. PeopleDoc, an HR Service Delivery platform, can give you a quick win in just 8-12 weeks.
There may be many steps along the way for organizational change. An HR Service Delivery platform like PeopleDoc can be an early milestone for you, immediately contributing to a number of HR objectives you have for 2017 and beyond. You can get started on your transformation today with a visible project, yielding tangible results in just a few weeks. 2017 could be the year of HR innovation at your organization with HR Service Delivery as your secret weapon.
