Look before you leap

Before jumping into exploring specific solutions, we recommend undergoing a formal assessment to ensure that your human capital management, technology and business goals and strategies are in alignment. Before we even talk technology solutions, our independent People Management team can work with you on an objective assessment of your current position and requirements.

Understand the opportunity

Rather than throwing the baby out with the bathwater, this cloud readiness assessment process will enable you to better understand the benefits and opportunities, within HR and other parts of the business – what’s working, what needs upgrading.

Target your investment.

By taking the time to assess your existing systems and determine what can be leveraged and improved, you can achieve the best return on investment by deploying the most effective solutions.

Benefits of a Cloud Readiness Assessment:

Confidence and clarity

Be sure that your current human resources technology and systems will benefit from, and integrate with, cloud-based solutions.

Identify priorities to maximise ROI

Given the inevitable constraints around time and budget, plus the need to bring people along for the journey, it is ideal to identify the main issues and priorities upfront to maximise the benefits and returns.

Change management.

By involving key managers and employees in the cloud readiness assessment process, you can increase their acceptance and engagement in making the change from old to new.

Build a business case

The findings of an assessment are valuable to increase management and leadership confidence in the cloud HR technology and to understand the benefits around costs, efficiency, compliance and risk mitigation – it can help demonstrate the power of a shift from administrative function to strategic advantage.
