LEBANON, NJ (PRWEB) December 21, 2004
Pilat HR Solutions, committed to Powering Performance and Potential SM through its HR PulseÂ® range of HR software applications, process consulting and data services, today announced its 30th birthday.
ÂPilat was founded 30 years ago by six visionaries, each passionate about bringing rigor and professionalism to HR. They foresaw the day when HR would sit at the boardroom table equipped, like its peers, with robust data as evidence to support its contributions to the businessÂ, shared PilatÂs CEO and Principal Consultant, Clinton Wingrove. "It has taken most of those 30 years for the HR profession in general to achieve that goal. Pilat is proud to have played its part and our HR processes, data analysis services, and software applications have moved a long way since those days of paper and mainframe computers.Â

ÂWith the confidence and understanding that 30 yearsÂ international experience brings, we continue to operate at the cutting edge and we now look forward to another 30 years and new goals. HR now has the seat at the boardroom table; the challenge is to earn the right to stay there! We must equip our organizations with processes, data, and technology that will maximize the performance and realize the true potential of every individual. We must be able to account for our actions, justify our plans, and prove our worth. This is not a matter of merely acquiring the latest in technology, a myriad of metrics, or the latest guruÂs book; it is about integrating processes, data, and technology to Power Performance And Potential and to bring genuine intelligence to HR decision making.Â
ÂWe thank all of our clients across the world who have traveled this journey with us. We look forward to the next 30 exciting years as we continue to bring cutting edge solutions, built from experience, to meet the HR challenge.Â
