Move to Technology for Managing HR Data Now Includes Tech Provided by Payroll Carriers
Consulting Firms Announce Results of Recent HR Based Technology Survey
Stamford, CT. [October 10, 2007] It is with great excitement that human resources consulting firm, OperationsInc (OI) and management consulting firm, Performance-Solutions-Group, Inc. (PSG), announce the results of their HR Based Technology Survey — the second in a series of HR-centric surveys relating to today’s workforce. 60 organizations in the Fairfield / NY Metro Area participated in the survey which focused on HR-Related Technology in the workplace.
The key findings from our survey:
- 76% of those surveyed use a formal Human Resources Information System (HRIS) to track employee related data.
- The HRIS in use by survey participants comes in the form of specialized software they have purchased OR technology provided via their outsourced Payroll carrier.
- To this end results also demonstrated that 60% of companies surveyed outsource the handling of their payroll.
While there clearly is a growing prevalence of technology within HR, the world of benefits processing still lags with close to 60% surveyed still using paper to process benefits enrollments.
“While in the past HR seemed to be a bit behind the times when it came to the infusion of technology, the results today clearly show they are catching up “, said Wil Brewer, President and founder of Performance-Solutions-Group.
“The role the Payroll Service sector now plays in managing employee data demonstrates a calculated push by the industry to be more of a participant in the entire HR administration machine”, said David Lewis, CEO of OperationsInc. “Eventually the insurance industry has to catch up and enable their enrollment processes more seamlessly via online interfaces. Until then you are looking at one of the few remaining paper processes in existence within HR.”
OI and PSG have committed to producing 6 surveys per year focused on HR centric topics. A complete report of the Recruiting Practices Survey and additional information about these survey services can be found at http://www.operationsinc.com/survey.html.
