Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
HCR Software, a leading provider of pay-for-performance software and services, today announced a free HR best practices webinar on the topic of Think Local, Act Global: How successful organizations align HR and IT. Titled "Think Local, Act Global," the complimentary event will take place on Wednesday, January 16; the keynote speaker is Karen Beaman, Founder of Jeitosa Group International.
Whether to centralize or decentralize the global HRIT organization continues to perplex Human Resources and IT executives. Yet, it turns out that we're not asking the right questions. In fact, we've been going about globalization completely the wrong way. The old adage, "Think Global, Act Local," is the inverse of what we should be doing in HRIT. Rather, it is by first "thinking locally" to understand the needs of our local business communities, and then "acting globally" to seamlessly knit together diverse business functions and systems into a holistic approach that we can build an effective and competitive global organization.
A widely recognized global HR industry and business leader, Karen Beaman has more than 25 years experience in information systems and human resource management. Before founding Jeitosa, Karen built two highly-regarded consulting businesses: AGConsulting East and ADP Europe (UK, France, and Germany). She is Editor-in-Chief of the IHRIM Journal and is currently working on her fourth industry-focused book. Karen was a significant contributor to the strategy and design of Workday's new global HCM offering. In 2002, she was honored with IHRIM's Summit Award recognizing her outstanding achievement in the field of HR systems.
Join us in this great opportunity to discuss Think Local, Act Global. Learn key concepts on this topic and how your organization can take advantage with field tested best practices. The discussion will entail the entire scope of how successful organizations align HR and IT. Click here to register for the Webinar: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/381984603
