HR technology

Transforming HR through the cloud

The pace of technological, political and economic change has left businesses facing a more unpredictable world than ever before. The pressure to reduce HR costs, while recruiting and retaining the best talent has increased significantly.

HR Software as a Service (SaaS) is providing HR leaders with a unique opportunity to rapidly deliver revolutionary change and a renewed strategic focus. Organisations who recognise HR SaaS as the opportunity for transformational change are creating sustainable economic value in record time alongside delivering reduced costs, better workforce experience and business wide strategic improvements.

PwC’s Jeremy Lief talks about leveraging HR technology to transform your organisation | Duration 1:54

Do you need to take action to update your existing HR technology? Are you under pressure to reduce HR costs and considering whether HR Software-as-a-Service can do this for you? Do you want to align your HR function to your organisation’s business strategy and get the best from your people? And are you looking for ways to enhance employee experience and engagement?

How we can help

Our HR projects increasingly have both a technology and a transformational element – the true value of helping a client implement a Cloud HR system is through embedding this in a broader HR transformation programme – through ‘real transformation’, shifting HR from transactional to strategic activity, a more agile and robust operating model, business driven talent and performance strategies and a radically improved employee experience. Similarly, a successful HR transformation project will usually require a cornerstone element of technology.
