Technology in the Workplace Interest Group – Building a Real-Time Performance Management Culture

The Alzheimer’s Association in Chicago hosted a wonderful event on March 1, 2018.
HR has been talking about “blowing up” the Performance Management process for decades. That reality is finally within reach thanks to advances in technology like cloud-computing that make new, modern, more engaging solutions available to companies of all sizes. The panelists were able to share their experiences on how technology made it possible to move from a decades-old annual PM process to a real-time, frequent touch-point approach that ties Performance Management into their Compensation processes. They discussed their journeys, their successes and challenges, and how technology is enabling their managers to maximize the value that they derive from their Performance Management and Compensation processes. Thank you, Alzheimer’s Association, HRMAC and all the panelists for hosting, speaking and attending the event.

HR Compensation Management Software Company Empowers Business with Best HRIS Tools

Chicago based SimplyMerit, a division of MorganHR, Inc., is making waves with its popular HRIS software, which is quickly becoming the most intuitive HR compensation management software on the market.

When asked to describe what they do, MorganHR’s Managing Partner Neil Morgan said, “Annual merit allocation is a significant investment of both time and money for most organizations. Properly rewarding great performance is something most companies would love to embrace, but the process of doing so can be less than desirable. SimplyMerit allows you to optimize your merit spend while simultaneously engaging executives and empowering management. If you are a business looking to improve your human resources compensation management system, then SimplyMerit should be worth considering.”
