HCM (human capital management) software helps organizations manage their workforce. Usually, an HCM platform contains solutions and automation for a wide range of HR functions, from payroll and benefits administration to recruitment, performance management, and talent acquisition.
HCM software solutions like Oracle, Workday, or SAP SuccessFactors, consist of tech-powered HR tools and applications. These HR tools help firms manage and maintain their employees through recruitment, onboarding, attendance, time tracking, leave management, training, payroll management, performance management, and various other functions.
Your HCM suite can impact your entire organization, which makes getting the decision right very important, and there is huge risk involved with making the wrong decision.
How to choose the best HCM solution for your business
An organization’s workforce is it’s most valuable asset. Recruiting and hiring employees is the primary function of any organization’s HR department. Retaining talent and ensuring that staff is the right fit for the role and organization is secondary. Any deficiencies in this process can be catastrophic for the company. The right HCM software can mitigate this risk.
When you think about what to look for in an HCM system, you may begin by asking google, “What HCM platform is the best,” or searching for ‘top HCM Software Vendors 2020’.
You will most likely see the “Top 7 HCM software for 2020” and look at the top players on G2 Crowd and Gartner. It’s essential to keep in mind that these solutions may be biased towards the vendors as most vendors pay to play in this space, and at this point should be taken as more general suggestions. These top-ranked solutions are probably the most popular selections within the industry; however, they may not fit your organization’s unique needs. In looking at a few of the “best” vendors, you may see some red flags, and begin to brainstorm ways to customize the platform to your organization’s needs.
