5 Reasons to Participate in the Sierra Cedar HR Systems Survey

The Sierra-Cedar 2017–2018 HR Systems Survey is available here until July 1, 2017.  If you haven’t already participated, here are five good reasons why should – there’s a lot in it for you!

1: Make better HR Technology Decisions

The most effective business decisions are based on insights gleaned from reliable data.  If you expect to be making any significant decisions over the next year involving HR systems, the Sierra Cedar HR Systems Survey is one of the most reliable sources of insight available.   That’s because it’s the most widely participative HR systems survey in the world. More participation means more data.  And more data means more accurate, reliable insights.

2: Achieve better alignment of technology with business outcomes.

The survey analysis includes a (study) of the business outcomes that organizations are pursuing through their use of technologies.  This outcome-oriented approach can change an organization’s decisions concerning HR processes, people, and technology to achieve greater alignment with the overall business strategies.

3: Get smarter about new HR technologies.

Technology is changing at a rapid pace and keeping up with what’s new, who’s using it, and what value they’re receiving can be a full-time job.  The survey provides insightful answers to these questions.  So, whether you’re an early adapter, a member or the majority or a laggard, having the right insights about new technologies will help you carve out a better HR technology roadmap for your organization.

4: Understand what the leaders are doing differently.

If you aspire to achieve greatness, find out the daily practices of high-achieving organizations, and make those practices part of your daily routine.   The survey analysis presents how high-achieving organizations are using technologies within HR practice areas to achieve optimal outcomes.

5: It’s your opportunity to contribute, and be counted.

The quality of the analysis that comes out of this survey is directly related to the quantity of participation that goes into it.  The more HR technologists who respond to the survey, the greater the depth and breadth of data from which to produce an analysis.

So, if you haven’t already, please invest the time to be counted.  You’ll receive a copy of the 2017-2018 survey results analysis when it becomes available.  But more than, you’ll be contributing to the value that your peers receive.

What goes around, comes around!
