As a leading technology consulting firm, a successful tech implementation is crucial to the success of every new HR Tech client relationship. 

Get it right and your revenue and reputation grow.

Get it wrong and word of mouth will spread that your firm is not up to the task.

Poor implementation can cost you a lot of time, money, and morale.

This article will explain how you can turn this situation around and make the implementation process your secret weapon rather than the banana peel that trips you up.

HR Tech Implementations Are Hard

Let’s look at what can happen in your HR Tech implementations for new customers and how it can affect your company. 

  • Limited internal talent pipeline.
  • Inability to meet incoming projects’ talent staffing requirements – bench (supply vs demand). Need flexible bench – it cost to maintain bench depth.
  • Need to maintain a mix of generalist and specialist skills on the team.
  • Hard to find the people they need so it’s hit and miss (“Do you know someone?” or go to old database).
  • If using contingent staffing, there can be a greater risk of project issues, bad client experience, and additional cost due to poor consultant performance.
  • Hard to find specific skill sets and certifications, etc – then a long time to ramp up.

It’s expensive to maintain a fully-stocked bench of talented consultants on a permanent basis.

In order to respond rapidly to client demands, you need to meet incoming projects’ talent staffing requirements with a large well-stocked talent bench for new projects. You also need to maintain a mix of generalist and specialist skills on the team.

Maintaining this talent bench is expensive. 

You’d have to pay your benched consultants 40 hours per week even if they’re not working on billable projects. They may then quit for a better gig elsewhere, go out on sick leave, and so on. 

We need high-caliber consultants but we can’t afford to stock up the bench.” 

Your workload is not smooth & consistent.

New deals and new customers can come on board at any time. It’s not smooth and consistent. 

However, you still need to be able to respond quickly.

You need the right high-quality experts right when they’re needed. 

You don’t have time for sighting through CVs, or sorting through loads of unknown freelancer profiles on online labor marketplaces.

Bad consultants can ruin your implementations.

Your reputation is on the line.

Your customers will not be impressed if you send them implementation consultants who don’t know your software well or if they are disorganized or poor communicators.

What Are Some Ways HR Tech Vendors Try To Solve These Problems?

You have plenty of options when it comes to trying to get the right talent in place for your software implementations.

Unfortunately, most of your options aren’t good enough.

  • Find and hire their own people as employees or contractors. Slow ramp-up time and maybe wrong people hired.
  • Can use a staffing agency – roll the dice. Candidates are just CVs to the recruiter unlike us.  Enavrio are better qualified to vet.
  • Recruitment agencies don’t have the same network so may miss talent.
  • We’re exposed to what’s current and going on in the industry so we have the ability to see issues and find talent that others can’t.
  • On-demand, Just In Time aspect to this. We can staff only when they need it as opposed to paying for a full-time resource when their client’s need isn’t full-time. More cost-effective and faster and responsive.

Trying to find good consultants in the midst of a talent shortage.

Many consultancies try to find people by running ads or turning to their network. With the talent shortage in full swing, the recruitment process can be very tough.

As a result, the project ramp-up is slow and these time delays can lead to standards being lowered and the wrong people being hired.

Sifting through random profiles on online labor marketplaces.

Some companies waste hours trying to sift through rows and rows of unknown freelancer profiles on online labor marketplaces.

It’s hard to feel confident handing over your new customer to an unknown, unproven consultant you met online.

Relying on freelancers who can disappear at any time.

With the rise of the gig economy, more and more unqualified people are moonlighting as freelancers. 

Unvetted freelancers may not be committed to your project and can leave at any time, leaving you high and dry in front of your customer at a crucial time in your implementation.

Paying expensive recruitment fees to staffing firms.

Staffing firms are paid for each vacancy they fill. 

Typically, they simply advertise online to find individual people whose resume looks ok and may enable the firm to bill you.

A lot of the time, the staffing firm never even meets the person except for a 10-minute phone call.

It’s hard to feel confident handing over your new customer to an unknown, unproven consultant who happened to say the right things in an interview.
