If your municipality is attempting to leverage an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for your human resource (HR) department needs, we know you’re frustrated. At its core, ERP software is intended as a financial system to track revenue, expenditures, and goods. With personnel being part of a businesses revenue equation, some private and public sector entities are attempting to use an ERP instead of a fully integrated human resource management system (HRMS) solution. However, any HR manager knows that to hire and retain talent effectively, you need a people-based solution, not access to financial software. Too often ERP systems are foisted upon HR departments with the belief that the integrated HR modules will serve their needs. Instead, the result is the requirement to rely on a financial software system that creates disjointed employee data and leaves HR teams unable to identify, hire, and retain top talent.
