Buyer’s remorse with HR technology – Webinar 3:

How do you maximise your ROI with HR technology?

Our summer webinar series – Buyer’s remorse with HR technology – investigated the common causes of buyer’s remorse and provided you with strategies for avoiding it. We shared case studies from organisations that have successfully implemented HR technology and achieved a positive ROI but also share the lessons learned and how to avoid some common pitfalls.

The live version of the webinar ran on Thursday, September 7th at 12:30 pm, focusing on ‘How do you maximise your ROI (return on investment) for HR Tech?’. Host Chris Horton, accompanied by Rebecca Addison, Senior Manager at LACE, Daniel Balshaw, HR Transformation Director of Oracle, Sian Beacham, Client Executive Director at LACE Partners, looked at answering the questions:

  • Are you aware of all the functionality that makes sense for your organisation?
  • Have you taken on board all the updates?
  • Have you fixed fundamental integration or data problems?
  • Have you put all the foundations into place?
  • Are you clear about what success looks like?
We also explored:
    • New Functionality and New Releases: Learn the “how” and “why” behind keeping up with the latest updates. Understand how these advancements can enhance your HR technology and improve efficiency and effectiveness.
    • Optimising Your HR Technology Ecosystem: Uncover strategies and best practices to align your technology with your organisational needs and discover how to leverage your HR technology ecosystem to streamline processes, enhance employee experience, and drive positive outcomes.
    • Measuring Success and ROI: Understand the significance of measuring success and return on investment (ROI) with HR technology. Gain insights into key metrics, data analysis, and reporting techniques that can help you assess the effectiveness and value of your HR technology investments.
    • Strengthening Your Foundations: Evaluate whether your HR technology foundations have been thoroughly covered. Discover how incorporating experience layers can provide a user-friendly interface, simplify workflows, and optimise engagement across different HR technology solutions.
