HR teams often use multiple point solutions for recruitment, training, learning and performance management. However, extracting, combining, and transferring information between systems can cause data to become out of sync, meaning HR professionals struggle to gain a holistic view.
That causes headaches when it comes time to create annual reports, deliver accurate FTE figures, and evaluate budget versus actuals. The consequences can be costly, for example, accidentally hiring additional staff thinking that you are within your approved headcount, when you actually are not.
The theory is best-of-breed tools are ‘best’ at a specific task. The truth is, superior enterprise systems are both fully-featured and interconnected.
With an integrated human resource and payroll solution, data is effortlessly shared within the team and between business functions. One, unified database may seem like a small thing, but it’s actually a big productivity and accuracy booster.
