One of the biggest issues that many mid- to large-sized organizations grapple with is how best to leverage the latest HR technology within their existing HRIS environments (and by latest I mean easy-to-use, socially-infused, engaging technology that delivers on efficiency, collaboration and productivity gains). HR leaders often think they must come to terms with having to “rip-and-replace” an existing HRIS.
And it’s understandable why they might think this – enterprise technology environments are very complex. Often there are:
- multiple disparate applications and data sources
- numerous employee logins/URLs
- lack of the right data
- lackluster process integration
With these types of complexities, it is easy to see how companies could resign to the “one size fits all” philosophy, and subsequently overlook opportunities for game-changers such as socially-infused HR solutions.
The good news is there are game-changers that can be adopted into your current HRIS environment, leveraging the best of what you have and enhancing it to achieve “HR fireworks.”
So … What is HR Fireworks?
We believe this occurs when efficiency and the employee experience converge to create an HR system of engagement that truly “pops!”
To find out how you can Create HR Fireworks, be sure to sit in on a presentation by Cary Schuler (Co-Founder & cfactor CEO) and Deb A. Maher (Sr. Director of HRIS and Shared Services at DeVry Inc.) at the IHRIM 2013 HRMS Strategies Conference (#IHRIM2013) in Orlando, on June 4.
Stop by and visit me and my colleagues at Booth 815 to enter to win an iPad mini, grab a bag of popcorn, and take in some HR Fireworks first hand. I look forward to seeing you there!

Depending upon who you talk to, social technology for business and more specifically social media for HR, is either one of the most profound transformations happening in the workforce or the most overhyped thing since the introduction of the Segway – and typically there isn’t much middle … Continue reading Social Media For HR: When Pliers Aren’t Necessarily Pliers
