I would like to preface this whole blog with saying this is truly just my opinion. One that has taken me 5 months to pull together. I am currently implementing a new HCM (Human Capital Management) system (formally known as HRIS) called Workday. They are based in Pleasanton CA and darn it, they just get it.
You make a change, and its effective NOW, you chance your mind, you can undo and have a sandbox for ever and ever. You can buy their content for not so much, and have the piece of mind that an update will take you 1-2 weeks. My favorite piece, customer vote for new functionality (how freaking cool is that) and you get 2-3 updates every calendar year.
Does this remind you of anything? Facebook perhaps? Companies that just are with the times, can move quick, and listen their customers. It’s fortunate we have at least one solution in HR right now that is so innovative. Lets keep on progressing to a place where HR isn’t the policy police, but the business & employee growth & development place (my future heaven).
