Probably the biggest – and potentially most risky – undertaking for any Human Resources or payroll professional is the selection of new software. Additionally, it is almost inevitable that they will be involved with it at some point in their career.
The litany of failures in this area has been alarmingly high, from selecting the wrong systems in the first place all the way through to ineffective implementation; all of this against a heavy cost to the organisation in both financial terms and lost opportunities. Denis Barnard is a consultant specialising in the selection of HR & payroll systems, and other HRIS, and is acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading experts in the field.
Drawing on many years of experience, he gives crucial insight to the actions needed to minimise the risks inherent to this type of project, as well as a step-by-step blueprint of how the right result can be achieved. Written in a style aimed to demystify the relatively unknown, this is a “must-have” for the practitioner’s bookshelf.
