Myths vs. Facts: HRIS Edition

In this age of “fake news” and information overload, let us help you by narrowing it down and focusing on common myths and stating the actual facts on why shifting to HRIS is the best move you can do for your organization, and why the best time is now.

Myth: Manual is always better.

Fact: Automating a.k.a. shifting to HRIS, presents better and more opportunities too!

“It’s Better Manual” (pun for IBM who is an IT industry/innovation leader) has been a common rebuttal vs. automation and digitalization.  Yet then until now, automation and digitalization continue to prove to be better and do more, opening up doors to countless opportunities for teams and organizations.  We also often hear, “it’s not broken so why fix it?”  But also, why wait for things to break, when you can always take action before they do?  Finding the right HRIS can help you prevent things from “breaking”, and at the same time keep your company growing and moving forward.  Now, isn’t that much better?

Myth: Shifting to HRIS will create additional and complicated work.

Fact: Having the right HRIS will lead to more efficient and effective processes.

Shifting to the right HRIS will actually integrate a lot of existing processes, eliminate unnecessary ones, and in fact yield even more useful output that can help not only at a process level but even more important, strategically.  Work smart vs. work hard.  The right HRIS will help you work smart-er and reward your hard work too.

Myth: Automation will cost a lot.

Investing in the right HRIS is investing in your company’s most valuable asset – your people; with all the tangible and intrinsic benefits.  What seems as an expense on the surface will actually translate to time savings and less stress, yielding better results therefore outweighing any cost – which is what an investment means.  And more good news!  GreatDayHR is actually priced very competitively with no implementation fee!
