Zalaris is known for having its finger on the pulse of payroll and human resource services. It’s also safe to say we’ve had a strong hand in shaping the impressive evolution of these functions for numerous leading enterprises across Europe.
In 2020, we actually turn 20. Two decades of experience has given us a unique perspective on the HR front, including as the new year quickly approaches.
As part of our preparation for the future of HR and payroll, we developed a white paper, HR 2020, to delve into what to expect over the next 12 months. Here are five highlights to consider:
- Advanced payroll solutions and services, including on an outsourced basis, will be a foundation for success
- Shared Services will continue to grow in scope and value, increasing efficiency with lower overall costs in the cloud
- Analytics will yield better decision-making in key areas from recruiting and onboarding to training and professional development
- BPO, design thinking, mobility and security will culminate in radically improved approaches to HR and payroll challenges
- Automation will create more strategic HR positions – not fewer overall jobs – and further elevate the function
If you’ve not yet modernized HR and payroll, the time is now. Make 2020 a transformational year. The pluses are too great to ignore, the downsides of inaction too enormous to permit. In our HR 2020 report, we spell out in detail what to expect. You can also anticipate software innovations to facilitate every dimension of transformation. Partners like SAP are also taking steps to ease such strategic endeavors by working more closely with us.
Zalaris Payroll and HR Solutions Secure Your S/4 HANA Future
Case in point: Zalaris Payroll powered by SAP HCM. Now that confusion has been cleared up regarding SAP HCM on SAP S/4 HANA, instead of uncertainty potentially arising by the year 2025, partners like Zalaris can now take responsibility indefinitely for all future upgrades and ongoing “next generation” maintenance. Capitalize on this peace of mind – a worry-free reality in helping our customers not just endure but thrive in the digital era.
Our success, however, doesn’t come down to the strength of our partnerships. They are critical, of course, but not nearly as crucial as delivering on customer expectations throughout Europe and across international borders. This is how we win more than just HR hearts and minds. What we do helps you deliver better results based on proven methodologies, expert guidance and deployments that bolster ROI and value from the beginning.
Turn Tasks into Cost Savings
With Zalaris, routine administrative tasks turn into automated cost savings. We help you determine the best routes to take and ensure you get where you want to go. It’s a collaborative process that warrants a qualified partner who has HR and payroll core competencies in its bones. Although you may be embarking on your very first transformation journey, it’s what we do day-in and day-out for enterprises across a multitude of industries.
There’s never been a more pivotal time for HR and other business leaders to take control of their digital destinies. Today’s workforce dynamics are rapidly changing. The consumerization of expectations leads both management and staff to not only want but demand more from employers, especially in relation to simplifying their professional (and personal) lives with tools that enable higher productivity and better work-life balance.
You will also face increasingly strong pressures to innovate in other ways – right down to what it literally means for people to work in your culture. Is it progressive and benefiting from diversity initiatives, for example? Are you fully mobile with time and expense reporting? Is HR’s role more strategic than tactical?
Tangible ROI the Takeaway
Although opportunities for HR to make a bigger difference operationally or otherwise may have been more limited in previous years, 2020 holds much greater promise. The reasons are simple. Technology can be leveraged more effectively with greater tangible ROI. “Self service” has become a beacon of the future, freeing up HR personnel – and all your people – to apply, develop and make the most of their skills and talents each day.
This is how organizations truly reach their potential. Instead of being mired in outdated practices and processes, bring a brighter year into focus. It’s fairly easy to see as well as realize with the right partner. Twenty years of HR and payroll experience puts us at the top of our game. We are eager to help you put the lessons learned and innovations acquired to work for your enterprise.
Don’t wait. Your company’s future is on the line, and your people deserve the advantages of a meaningful work experience that’s digitally enabled. Expectations are higher, and cynicism abounds for companies languishing in old ways.
Get 2020 vision on HR and payroll – where foresight makes a profound difference. Missteps can be destructive and big steps extraordinarily rewarding when done right. Trust Zalaris. We have a bead on what to do and how to do it. Year after year!
