In The Spotlight
The High Performance Organization
Brian McIntyre, Founder and President
In today’s business climate, organizations are challenged
to increase revenue and productivity but with fewer resources and
smaller budgets. Improving operational efficiency is a prerequisite
Automating and streamlining critical corporate functions - finance,
human resources, payroll, performance, recruiting, benefits, and
compensation management - can help eliminate redundant or obsolete
business practices and boost executive decision-making.
Many companies are undergoing broad re-design of their business
processes to manage the increasing costs of human resource administration
and to build a more efficient model for supporting anticipated growth.
For example, a typical professional services firm utilizes thousands
of interrelated processes for customer projects, billings, and resource
management. As the organization grows, the ability to integrate
new associates into the service delivery model quickly (time to
market) provides a significant competitive edge.
Exceptional HR services operations share certain business practices.
They include defining a clear culture-based technology strategy
and pursuing operational efficiencies, relentlessly. Adhering to
these – and other – high performance management techniques
will improve workforce productivity and deliver real hard dollar
While expected return on investment can be substantial when deploying
new web-based application solutions, the initial investment for
installation and training can be overwhelming. We recommend a strategy
that incorporates open flexible HR software architecture combined
with an implementation approach that builds accountability, strengthens
decision-making, and reduces cost of ownership.
