Coming of Age

"Now we are entering an era where we will see human resources systems moving beyond information processing.We have and will continue to see a push into systems that provide analyses, trends, intelligent decision making and other forms of human resources planning, forecasting and accountability."

Purchasing human resources automated solutions to assist with day-to-day activities is not an easy task. It takes careful consideration to determine what will work best for your organization and what will fit your needs. In addition, HRIS systems may encompass many of the capabilities that you need, but there are still areas that you may have to consider niche products to accomplish your goals. The diagram to your right shows how all of these system should work together seamlessly.

We recommend taking a careful look at the return on investment incurred when implementing such tools. Considering the ROI will offer another source of information to use when selecting automated solutions. There are many factors that can be included within the ROI. We hope that the white paper, "Human Resources Technology - Coming of Age", will help during the selection process.

Paycheck Fairness Act Update
Reintroduced in the Senate

On September 14, 2010, the Paycheck Fairness Act was reintroduced by Senator Harry Reid (D-NV). He introduced this bill with 13 cosponsors in an effort to return to the legislation that has been held up in the Senate since January, 2009. Former Senator Hilary Clinton originally introduced this bill.

This reintroduced Paycheck Fairness Act would amend portions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In an article written by Littler, the Governmental Affairs Team, the White House recently urged the bill's passage during a forum on work and family issues, calling it "a common-sense bill that will help ensure that men and women who do equal work receive the equal pay that they and their families deserve." Littler went on to say that the reintroduced Paycheck Fairness Act is on the Senate calendar. However, the timing of its consideration is uncertain.

If you would like to learn more about the potential impact this issue could have on employers, please review the "Paycheck Fairness Act Reintroduced in Senate", written by Ilyse Schuman with Littler.
