HRIS platforms like Workday and SuccessFactors don’t come cheap and when a new update rolls-out everybody clambers about to set the impending processes in place. Getting people on-board to ensure everyone understands the changes can be a challenge in itself. So without further ado, here are a few tips to launch an HRIS update successfully.
Identifying and segmenting your target audience is a key part in creating a successful HRIS communication strategy. Armed with this insight, it will enable you to pinpoint what is relevant for your audience needs.
What do you want people to know, feel and do? Setting clear objectives will let you measure the performance of your HRIS strategy. If the objective is to log on to the HRIS platform to find out more then set the measures in place.
Identify what platforms have the maximum reach and engagement with your target audience. Reviewing such data will provide actionable insights on which channels will deliver the greatest ROI.
Use everyday language and avoid HR jargon. Speak directly to employees as individuals rather than as a group and ensure the tone is human and personal.
It’s never a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to messaging. To communicate what the new approach means for individuals – and to make sure everyone understands and feels involved – tailor the key benefits to suit each of your audience groups.
