How is HR Outsourcing Really Working? Early Adopters’ Case Studies to be presented at IHRIM 2006 Conference and Technology Expo in Washington, DC

Share Article

Outsource, insource or do nothing – these are some of the difficult questions many companies are addressing today; questions that focus on costs, benefits and competitive advantage. Among the more than 50 educational sessions at IHRIM’s 2006 Conference and Technology Exposition, April 9-12 in Washington, DC, are six sessions and a panel discussion focusing on real company successes, and failures, of HR outsourcing and HR business process outsourcing. These sessions are designed to help attendees develop an effective outsourcing strategy.

Attendees at IHRIM’s HRMStrategies 2006 Conference and Technology Exposition, April 9-12 in Washington, DC, will have the opportunity to hear in-depth case studies from several major corporations about their success, or lack of it, regarding HR outsourcing and HR business process outsourcing. Although recent studies show that HR outsourcing is on the rise, several companies have brought previously outsourced services back in-house. Clearly, the option to outsource some, most, or all of HR’s processes is something that many organizations are currently wrestling with – and there are no easy answers.

IHRIM’s conference features a comprehensive outsourcing focus area including six separate outsourcing sessions and one outsourcing panel event. These sessions focus on exploring the variety of ways that HR can use to deliver its services to employees. The sessions are not necessarily technology related, but help provide alternatives for companies of all sizes and structures. They also provide insight that will help in the evaluation and selection and ongoing operational management and effectiveness of an outsourcing strategy.

Because companies are seeking more fundamental information about whether and what sort of HR outsourcing is right for them, IHRIM is presenting the following sessions at the 2006 Conference:

·    What is this thing called HR BPO? – Beachside Consulting Group,

·    HR-to-Go: A Vendor’s and Buyer’s Perspectives of Outsourcing for Mid-Sized Companies – Somerford Corporation and Genesys,

·    Outsourcing Implemented: Cost Reduction Delivered – CIGNA Corporation and Deloitte Consulting,

·    Expert Outsourcing Governance is Key to Realizing Deal Value: Do it or lose it – The Williams Companies and EquaTerra,

·    Life in HR after HRO – Ceridian,

·    The Essentials of BPO: Service Delivery and Shared Service Centers – Convergys,

·    Plus the 2006 Outsourcing Panel moderated by IHRIM chairman Nov Omana.
