We are proud to be a part of Jeff’s HR transformation initiatives within Hersha Hospitality
Norwalk, CT. (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
ERC Dataplus, Inc., a leading provider of web-based human resource application solutions, congratulates Jeffrey Wade, SPHR, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Hersha Hospitality Management, LP for being announced as the Delaware Valley Human Resource Person of the Year. Mr. Wade’s predecessor employer became an ERC client in 1997 and when he joined Hersha Hospitality, one of his first calls was to ERC Dataplus.
“When I joined Hersha in 2006, I quickly realized that in order to implement the talent management vision and strategy that I wanted to put in place, I had to partner with a technology provider that could not only deliver, but do it within our timeframe and budget,” said Jeff. “I turned to ERC Dataplus because of my prior experience working with them. I knew they had a robust and configurable applicant tracking system, Selectech® Workforce Management and their ARGOS® 360 feedback system was ideally suited to assist with our management development initiative. We also use ERC’s technology to do guest satisfaction surveys at our non-branded properties. When we come across a business challenge where an immediate solution is not available, ERC has always been willing to work with us to develop a solution to address those issues. Their Selectech® PAFS(SM), Personnel Action Form System, is such an example. We wanted to eliminate paper and automate the processing of most personnel changes. With Selectech PAFS, we have processed over 5,500 transactions in eight months and are able to not only eliminate paper, but also to incorporate approval management, and insure compliance with our SOX requirements,” he went on to say.
“We are proud to be a part of Jeff’s HR transformation initiatives within Hersha Hospitality,” said Paul Rathblott, CEO of ERC Dataplus. “During the past two years under Jeff’s leadership his team, partnering with ERC, has been able to complete a significant number of key human resource projects and equip Hersha to continue its rapid growth in the acquisition of properties. We look forward to continuing our partnership and contributing to Jeff’s vision for Hersha’s growth and his personal success. The current initiative underway for Hersha is to implement an I-9 management and EVerify management system early in the third quarter,” Rathblott continued.
