1. Why do we need an HR system?
The most important question of all that you’ll need to answer on your company’s behalf is why you will be needing an HR system in the first place. We fully understand that it’s an overwhelming decision to make, and we’d love to provide you with the necessary information to properly answer this question and get the management team on board.
We recommend you to reflect on the following questions first: Is your company already using an HR system that might not seamlessly fit your company’s needs? Or is this the first time you’ll be getting an HR system?
How do I get started?
A good way to get started on a project of this scale, is to simply list the goals that you would want to achieve by having a (new) HR system. You will most likely want to free up time that you can spend on the development and capabilities of your employees. You may also need a system to help you warrant the security of your employee data, as well as create structure in the vast amount of personal data that is piling up in your company.
In any case, an HR system will help your HR processes become more organised and enable data-driven decision making that will support not only HR, but the entire management of your company.
2. What benefits can I expect to gain?
One of the first questions that springs to mind in the buying process is: what can an HR system offer that we don’t already have?

The main research takeaways provide clear reasons for anyone considering the purchase of an HR solution. In just one year, the implementation of an HR system provided the companies with benefits such as:
3. An HR system offers support in uncertain times
In rapidly changing times you are dependent on reliable HR data and tools that can help you manage your HR processes as smoothly as possible. An HR system enables you to make quick, data-driven decisions and helps you to easily manage all HR processes securely, supporting the continuity of your business today and in the future.
Scaling your business
An HR system will enable your company to define clear processes that will allow you to scale your business both up and down. In times when the business needs to take a step back, the system will back you up with the correct data and lets you store important documents efficiently in one central place.
When the times comes to scale your business back up, the same processes will help you get back on track in no time. In short, with the correct HR system in place you can ensure that HR operations run smoothly at all times, while simultaneously creating a solid foundation for future growth.
