Make global HR Systems more acceptable
Implementing the Global HR System
Improve Productivity through HRIS: Taking HRIS Global Develop a More Effective System -Form Global HR Networks Make HR managers feel a part of a global team.Create a network of partners(HR managers) globally to use for support, organizational local activities, etc, and to help you better understand their own system and challenges.Treat local HR managers as equal partners to help develop new HR systems. -Standardize ends and competencies rather than specific methods Ex: IBM uses a more or less standardized recruitment and selection process worldwide. However, “ details such as who conducts the interview(hiring manager vs. recruiter) or whether the prescreen is by phone or in person, differ by country." Make the System More Acceptable True Global Organizations find it easier to install global systems Investigate pressures to differentiate and determine their legitimacy Try to work within the context of a strong corporate culture Require managers to work on global teams, identify, recruit, and place employees globally. Assess local culture or differences that undermine the new system. Be knowledgeable about local legal issues and be willing to differentiate if necessary. Easier to obtain agreement among employees Implementation - Two Best Practices You can't communicate enough Dedicate adequate resources Need for constant contact with decision makers in each country and those implementing and using the system. If new procedures are made, don’t make it required unless adequate resources are allocated.
