Details & Time Frame
How to say “YES!” when your system says “No!”
An effective business partner solves problems so they stay solved. The skill set for an effective business partner includes problem solving skills, creativity, analysis, collaborative relationships and making good decisions. But skills alone are not enough – the practitioner needs a robust suite of technology tools to help manage and process the vast amount of business, performance and talent data to turn it into actionable information. HR is supported by a core technology that is largely driven by Payroll, Benefits, and record keeping – very complex administrative functions that require a common approach and standardization. Compensation professionals find it especially difficult to develop robust planning tools, administer multiple compensation approaches, or create the differentiation necessary for a pay for performance environment. The core payroll system is designed to treat everyone the same. It is not surprising that compensation solutions are the weakest tool in a software suite, and that spreadsheets remain the tool of choice for compensation professionals, at the cost of time and administrative complexity.

The bottom line is that without enabling technology, you are faced with the prospect of saying “NO!” to business partner because your technology cannot support the innovative solution you can visualize but cannot implement. You simply cannot make design recommendations that you cannot administer. The unfortunate reality is that system modifications are often prohibitively expensive, and you quickly find that “add on” software usually trades one set of limitations for another.

There is an alternative. While most people have some understanding of Excel, even many “power users” are unfamiliar with the functionality available with Excel solutions. Excel with VBA - Visual Basic for Applications - can be used to develop robust, customized solutions that rival stand alone or add on programs, all at a fraction of the cost of alternatives. Specific examples will be provided.
