Talking the talk versus walking the walk. How one HCM solution may not be living up to its image
January 23, 2018
Out of all the human capital management solutions available, it’s easy to gravitate toward products that use slick marketing techniques, but the way the product is marketed needs to match its capability. The hype and capability weren’t quite matching when Nucleus Research interviewed users for a report and discovered that Workday only talks the talk in certain areas, such as functionality and implementations.
A few years ago, the healthcare industry began a substantial transformation. While the focus continues to be on the patient, the primary goal has evolved to emphasize keeping them healthy versus simply reacting to illness and injury. Similarly, the role of HR has begun a comparable transformation as we focus on the wellness of the workforce and proactively treating problems to reduce turnover and improve productivity. This alignment on health and prevention makes it that much more important that your HCM solution walks the talk when it comes to functionality in healthcare.
HR is also shifting away from transactions limited to payroll processing and timesheets, and moving toward utilizing data to personalize your employee experience and optimize their performance. If your HR team is spending more time on administrative activities and cannot focus on helping people reach their full potential, then perhaps your current HCM solution needs to be re-examined.
