HR’s new mandate is to help the rest of the organization maximize its investment in its greatest asset, which is their people
(PRWEB) April 18, 2007
HRchitect, the market leader in Talent Management Systems (TMS) consulting, has launched a separate practice to help firms with strategic planning services in the broader area of Human Capital Management (HCM).
On the heels of tremendous growth in Talent Management Systems consulting services, HRchitect has expanded its offerings to provide HCM systems strategic planning services. These consulting services are designed to help organizations create or refine their multi-year HCM systems strategic plan which is critical to have in place in todayÂ’s ever changing workplace. HRchitect’s services will provide for individualized analyses and plans based on the specific human capital goals of a firm and not the traditional “cookie cutter” approaches that are typically offered by other consulting companies.
“HR’s new mandate is to help the rest of the organization maximize its investment in its greatest asset, which is their people,” stated Matt Lafata, Director of Business Development for HRchitect. “We are seeing it become more commonplace where HR has a great opportunity to make a significant and measurable impact on the firm’s bottom line through detailed planning, alignment of people, and the appropriate use of technology. In order for HR departments, and the company as a whole to carry out that mandate, it takes more than a strategy and vision. It takes systems and processes to back up those strategies as well as a commitment to implement what the plan calls for.”
Some of the consulting services that HRchitect provides as part of its HCM Systems Strategic Planning Services include reviewing existing corporate, HR, HCM, HRIS and IT strategic plans along with detailed interviews with senior executives and other key individuals within an organization to validate these plans. HRchitect brings a third party perspective and industry knowledge to these steps that it has carefully developed over the past ten years. That extensive knowledge base is a critical element in helping HRchitect create an effective HCM strategic plan including a multi-year HR technology plan.
“Companies have been coming to us for years for help with the selection and implementation of their Talent Management systems,” stated Dan Katavola, Vice President of Consulting Services and co-founder of HRchitect. “It’s only natural that we help organizations step back and look at the big picture as to how all the different technology components and processes fit together. Most firms simply don’t have all the expertise internally to do this, and quite frankly they shouldn’t as it is not one of their core functions. We study HCM systems and processes every day and we are able to implement best practices based on any company’s unique culture, needs and requirements.”
HRchitect will be at numerous industry trade shows and user conferences both as an exhibitor and a featured speaker on Talent Management Systems and Human Capital Management (HCM) Strategic Planning throughout 2007.
