TechnologyAdvice has published an article about hiring HR technology consultants. I'm glad to be a consultant featured in the article.
As discussed in the article, there are many reasons to seek HR technology consulting. Here's an excerpt:
"HR professionals may not have the expertise or capacity to assess their company’s HRIS needs, build a business case, evaluate potential vendors, make decisions, or oversee an implementation. HRIS consultants serve to drive projects that don’t fit anyone’s job description—working across silos to assess current practices, develop requirements, evaluate vendors, obtain consensus, and many other tasks necessary for a successful implementation. Also, a consultant can provide a valuable outside perspective, revisit approaches that may be outdated, and use expertise and dedicated attention to help ensure good results."
