Hr Performance StrategyThe Sierra-Cedar 2016–2017 HR Systems Survey White Paper, 19th Annual Edition, is a powerful resource for human resources departments of all sizes. Since the report is more than 100 pages, we’ve culled a few points that will help representatives in small– to medium–sized organizations.

Making Sense of the Data

The Sierra-Cedar 2016–2017 HR Systems Survey White Paper, 19th Annual Edition, is a powerful resource for human resources departments of all sizes. Since the report is more than 100 pages, we’ve culled a few points that will help representatives in small– to medium–sized organizations.

Data analytics is a huge topic in HR.  The Sierra-Cedar 2016– 2017 Survey White Paper claims there continues to be a big focus on hiring HR Data Analytics roles, with 33 percent of organizations planning to invest in this area.

Maybe you don’t have the ability to hire a full-time HR analyst.  Here is a thought…borrow one!  Find someone within the organization with the analytical skills needed and see if they can assist on a special project. Perhaps you tell them you will increase their performance management score by 50 percent as an incentive.  (WAIT, don’t do that…that’s a horrible idea).

The Sierra-Cedar 2016– 2017 Survey White Paper also showed that Excel is still the number one ‘analytics’ tool used by organizations.  Shameless plug alert: Take a look at Performance Pro’s Advanced Analytics tool.  It will make your Excel files just a little bit jealous.

Looking to justify the investment in HR Technology?

You want technology to help you do your job better.  CEOs want a return on their investment.  The Sierra-Cedar 2016– 2017 Survey White Paper suggests the following action to bring you together.

Organizations with higher-than-average HR Technology adoption in these categories saw almost double the revenue per employee, and a 12 percent increase in their overall HR, Talent, and Business outcome metrics. We also found that these organizations were 75 percent more likely to be viewed as strategic partners by their business leaders, and 10 times more likely to be in the top 10 percent of organizations when it comes to social responsibility initiatives.

The Most Important Initiatives

The Sierra-Cedar 2016– 2017 Survey White Paper also states that regardless of industry or size of the organization, your HR colleagues across the country are working on the following initiatives:

  • Business Process Improvements and innovations
  • HR Systems Strategy – establishing or refining a HR application strategy that supports your business strategy
  • Talent Management Applications – implementing or changing applications including Recruiting, Performance, Learning, Compensation, or Succession Planning

Uggg..that’s the second shameless plug in this post.  I better call this post quits before I get to number three.  Okay, one more - Visit us at www.hrperformancesolutions.net/contact-hr-performance-solutions today.
