Don’t Settle for an Out-Of-The-Box HR Transformation, Discover How to Design a Custom Programme to Meet your Needs

HR transformation offers a range of meaningful benefits that enhance your workforce management and improve how you implement company policy. By introducing new technologies and taking a digital approach to HR, you can:

  • boost efficiency and productivity,
  • improve employee experience,
  • and introduce analytics to understand your workflows better.

While the benefits of HR digital transformation are available to all businesses, there are real challenges in implementing successful business cases.

Years of research on business transformation projects have shown a success rate of less than 30%. Furthermore, only 16% say digital transformation successfully improved their organisation’s performance, and 7% say performance improvements were unsustainable.

At Baselinked, we are experts in all things related to HR and the technologies you can utilise to transform your business. So let us impart some of the knowledge gained over decades in the industry to help you get on the right side of those statistics and reap the benefits of HR transformation.

Why so many HR Transformation Projects Fail

HR transformation projects are unsuccessful because they focus on a solution before properly analysing the problem. Organisations can quickly find an out-of-the-box ERP solution offering HR technology. But this means adapting your processes to fit a pre-defined solution that won’t consider your organisation’s unique nature.
You wouldn’t buy a home then change your lifestyle to match; you would take the time to consider your wants and needs then find a house that matches.
No two companies are the same. There are as many digital transformation solutions as there are companies. And while there is some overlap, your HR requirements and your company’s talent management processes are specific to you and your employees. HR transformation is successful when it focuses on the specifics, not the overlap.
Other issues arise when companies deal directly with software vendors to implement HR transformation. Often, very little support is provided to ensure the technology takes root within the organisation and maintains buy-in from staff. In addition, your new HR approach may not be flexible enough to adapt to your organisation’s future roadmap.
When it comes down to it, HR transformation falls short when simplified to an out-of-the-box solution-centric approach. While this may seem like the easiest route and the path of least resistance to improve your HR processes, the benefits usually slip away.
But in a field this broad, you can’t expect your organisation to become HR tech experts overnight. What you can do, though, is turn to experts like Baselinked.
