Today, business process automation is a critical strategy used to transform organizations and strengthen bottom-line results. At the front of this movement, human resource leaders are embracing automation to transform every aspect of their company's workforce management, from payroll to core HR to strategic talent management. For HR leaders who are considering automation to transform their people management processes, a crucial step in the early project-planning phase should include gaining a full understanding of the significant advantages offered from true cloud technology. Additionally, those organizations already using automated solutions via on-premise software will want to weigh out the options of switching to cloud delivery for greater efficiency.
To get the best performers and strongest leaders, proper performance evaluation processes and training opportunities need to be available. Organizations who utilize performance reviews and eLearning are more likely to experience:
• Higher engagement and productivity
• Increased career mobility
• Increased ability to manage compliance training
• More millennial recruitment

In the world of business (and innovation), “risk management” does not necessarily mean risk prevention. Often, there will be core areas where your company is willing to take risks in order to generate returns, such as entering a new market or developing a new product. Rather than avoid all risk, leaders of successful organizations assess the risks inherent in any situation and use them to drive company vision, strategies, plans, and processes. This ExecBlueprint describes an integrated approach for managing performance, risk, and compliance through centralized governance processes. It is called “GRC” (governance, risk management, and compliance), and it provides a framework for sharing policies, processes, and documents at the enterprise level to improve communication, create organizational efficiencies, and reduce unnecessary risk.

With the accelerated pace of business, it’s become more difficult for human resource (HR) departments to adapt to complex, changing human capital management issues such as recruiting and retaining highly competent workers, managing talent, developing leaders, and leveraging a multigenerational workforce.
