The right HR technology can enable you to better manage, develop and engage people and make better strategic decisions. However, the opposite is also true. Sticking with the wrong HR & Payroll provider can tank an otherwise healthy business.

The consequences of NOT switching, and staying with a subpar HR & Payroll provider, touch every aspect of your organization. Obviously, HR and the payroll process are affected, but the inefficiencies can also impact recruiting, training and development, time & attendance and how you go about analyzing the data overall.

So why don’t more organizations make the switch to a platform that better meets their needs?

For starters, it can be a challenge to figure out how they differentiate. Not all HR & payroll is the same, but they can look pretty similar. It’s important not to fall for the flashy demo and really dig into how a specific solution can help make your day-to-day easier.

Or, perhaps the thought of going through the implementation process causes you to hesitate switching providers. Totally understandable. It is time consuming, and even if implementation starts with the best of intentions, it can be an exercise in patience. There’s actually one question you can ask a potential provider to get a read on how the implementation might proceed.

Long story short, it really pays to do your homework when searching for a top-notch HR & payroll provider.
