Shopping is a popular pastime. A lot of people like to shop. But when you’re shopping for a new HRMS, the process of deciding exactly which system is right for your organization can quickly get bogged down in the details: whether to opt for on-premises or in the cloud, deciding on self-service functionality, ensuring mobile access, to payroll or not to payroll, the list can seem endless and any help is welcome. When you combine this with the fact you’ll be spending, on average, $6,125 per user of your system according to the latest HRIS research, you want to be sure you’re making the right decision.

Second, establish what your users need by way of functionality. Third, look at your technical requirements.
Multi-generational, virtual, and global workforces have added a new layer of complexity to the traditional functions of HR, Payroll, Benefits, and Talent Management. Attempting to manage all of these functions via disparate solutions is proving to be a major challenge for HR leaders, yet many organizations still operate off of 3-4 systems.

Many companies and HR departments have started to build communication plans directly into the Employee Handbook so employees have a strategy to refer to in the unlikely event of a crisis.

Here are a few tools and strategies you might consider having in place to communicate with your team in the face of the unexpected.
