- Human resource information systems (HRIS) are often deemed ineffective in achieving corporate business objectives.
- HR and IT leaders struggle to craft a strategy that meets business needs. Some overinvest in platforms, while others underinvest in lightweight, point-to-point solutions. Finding the sweet spot between is no easy task.
A successful HRIS project requires creating an HRIS strategy and roadmap based on the alignment of HRIS goals with organizational priorities and a partnership between HR and IT.
Impact and Result
