State of the Market: HR


Despite predictions that it would be subsumed by enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors encroaching from above and automation vendors encroaching from below, the manufacturing execution systems (MES) market has been growing steadily. This guide from TEC and Flexware Innovation provides state-of-the-market analysis, success stories from your peers, in-depth information on solutions, and a spotlight on leading vendors.

The products covered in this guide address the management of a company’s workforce, including hiring, payroll, benefits, training, health and safety, and more.

While HRIS are also commonly referred to as human resource management systems (HRMS) or as human capital management (HCM), for the purpose of this guide, we will refer to the systems that support HR functionality as HRIS throughout. All these systems—in one way or another—encompass core HR functionality.

We’ve included customer success stories to illustrate how the various HR solutions have helped companies like yours solve personnel, payroll, and benefit management problems.

For your convenience, there is also a vendor directory to assist companies looking for an HRIS, whether it’s an end-to-end on-premise solution, an on-demand or software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, a third party solution, or a best-of-breed solution.

We hope you’ll find this guide a useful tool in determining which HRIS is best suited to your company’s business model and particular needs.

State of the HR Marketplace


For many years, HR management has been viewed as the enterprise function responsible for staffing and personnel-related issues, such as recruiting and hiring, establishing employment policies, handling pay and retirement plans, and administering benefits. Today, company executives see the HR function in an entirely different way. From recruiting, hiring, and training new staff, to the transfer of key functions from the back office to the front line, it is evident that executives are looking to transform HR from a seemingly low-priority function into a strategic and vital part of the business.

What is fueling this transformation is that SMB executives are beginning to understand the critical link between their people and the bottom line. To remain competitive as an SMB in today’s job market, employers need to know what their employees are doing, what skills they have, their ambitions, how they are progressing, and how they fit into the future of the business.

SMBs that continue to view HR as strictly a department or administrative service and that fail to infuse HR functions throughout the organization will inevitably limit their ability to compete and grow.

We’ll review some of the trends in the HR space, as well as some of the challenges facing SMBs in the wake of globalization and the changing HR landscape.

Improving Profitability through Better Human Capital Management


Human capital costs account for at least half of the variable costs within a company. Yet this cost center is typically managed with less fiscal discipline, fewer business intelligence metrics, and more compromise than the more traditionally valued business aspects such as development and infrastructure.

Human capital management (HCM) needs best practices just like the other aspects of your business—a high turnover increases costs for training and knowledge transfer, while too many disengaged employees means a loss of profits from your bottom line.

This paper looks at how having a single, integrated, and comprehensive talent management solution can help manage all aspects of the employment lifecycle and aid in the management of human capital costs. Included here are case studies of five organizations that have used comprehensive talent management solutions and experienced good results, including increases in sales per employee and higher profits per employee.

The organizations discussed include a large restaurant chain, a restaurant supplier, an automotive services chain, a food retailer, and a bank holding company. Read on for real-life examples of successful human capital cost reduction through best practices brought about by HCM software solutions, such as streamlined processes, higher accuracy, and improved cost and time savings.
