Performance Evaluations can be tough to create, especially for the first time. If building off of a process that’s already in place, it’s easy to identify holes and areas of improvement to continue working towards a performance evaluation process that works for your organization’s culture and goals. However, building one from scratch can be significantly harder. Other than the obvious suggestion to remember that this process is iterative and can continue to be improved upon, the closer that you can get to an end result the first time around will help to ensure consistency over the years when evaluating an employee that has been around for that whole time.

5 Features to Look for in an HRIS
We wanted to put together a list of five features to look for in an HRIS when you are shopping around. Some of these features seem like a no-brainer, especially since we are talking about human resources information systems, however, you’d be surprised to know that not one of the features mentioned is found in 100% of HRISs.

5 Benefits of Adopting an HRIS
While Human Resources software continues to get more and more advanced, but also complex, there are few things that do not change: in this case, the benefits of employing an HRIS. While the industry is headed more towards cloud-based solutions, there are still solutions that exist that a company would store data on their own servers. While we’re not here to discuss the different options for an HRIS - the benefits remain the same whichever solution you decide to go with. In most cases, these benefits are present regardless of features and functionality because these come with even the bare minimum of standard features within a system.

HRIS vs HRMS: What Are They and How Are They Different?
If you haven’t caught up on our post discussing the differences between an HRIS and an HCM - now is a good time to head on over and read it before digging into this content. It’s possible you have not heard of an HCM, so our blog post would be a good place to start especially since you are probably evaluating and researching all your options if you are reading this article.

6 Questions to Ask Before Setting up a Spreadsheet to Track Information for the First Time
Spreadsheets are extremely powerful tools, especially when it comes to collecting information in an organized manner and if used properly, analyzing that information. What makes spreadsheets even more enticing is the “free” label that comes alongside them. Operating systems today come with spreadsheet software installed - whether you’re working on a Windows computer and use Microsoft Excel, or a Mac and use Numbers, the result is the same. The trouble typically comes when working to set up a spreadsheet for the first time and working to anticipate the types of challenges, or roadblocks that may come down the road, specifically when thinking about growth and scalability. Sure, your current solution works for 10 employees, but what about an organization that grows to over 200 employees, not to mention into the thousands. While your goal may not necessarily be adding employees to your organization, continued training and education is one of the latest workforce generation - the millennials - top consideration factors when choosing a new job and staying put. Adding to the frustration, you may be in an industry that requires that tracking of certifications, licenses, or anything else that may be regulated so getting this information up-to-date and into a digestible and understandable format is of high priority. We’re talking lots of man hours to ensure you’re not only recording the correct information, but that it is in a format that is agreeable for quick consumption.
HRIS vs HCM: What Are They and How Are They Different?
With so many different acronyms floating around the human resources world, it is important to understand the difference between the different platforms and what they offer. Determining which platform to use and the goals that you have in mind for your organization through its use is important to selecting the right option. Not only are there many different vendors that offer these different solutions - but on top of all that, there are many different solutions that cater to varying problems. What one software solution has, yet another may not. In these times, it is important to do your research before ultimately selecting a vendor as onboarding and training costs can be prohibitive in the future to shifting solutions, not all software integrates with current processes, and ultimately, lacking functionality for everything you may need is a real worry.
