Having the right Human Resources Management Software (HRMS) solution is essential in modern businesses. As more organizations move away from traditional business models and embrace the flexibility of remote work, a streamlined system is a necessity.
If you’ve been trying to evaluate which software you need for your growing organization, keep it simple. Here are five simple tips on choosing the best HRMS solution for you.
Define Your Needs
The first step to choosing the right HRMS solution for your business is to define your needs. Different options will have a variety of capabilities. Some organizations will require a robust user interface that supports a large enterprise while others need something simple and streamlined for a small team.
The primary focal points of HRMS includes payroll, recruitment, and onboarding, scheduling, self-service, benefits, and performance (source: https://www.hrpayrollsystems.net/hrms/). Figuring out which components your company requires now, as well as in the immediate future, is the key to choosing the right system.Continue reading

Like most kids, I was taught to avoid mistakes. Perfection was the goal, and errors were punished—sometimes with lower grades, and occasionally with a swat on the behind. Imperfection wasn’t rewarded in adulthood either, where a narrow definition of beauty left me wishing I had a supermodel figure and a more attractive face. Then came the innovation era in the business world. Suddenly we were supposed to cast off years of perfectionism and become wildly creative.
Unfortunately, a famous NASA study showed that the typical 98% creativity scores of five-year-olds falls to a mere 2% by the time these same children become adults. Creativity is messy! The creative path is dotted with imperfection and temporary setbacks, sometimes called failure. We learn to avoid mistakes, and thus stop expressing our creativity, in order to survive in our families, at school, and at work.
Here are five ways to breathe new life into the creativity with which you were born. (For the rest of this, please see the full article on Forbes here.)
Thanks for your timely advice this week! You have the right templates and tools that you can send at a moment’s notice, even at midnight! You truly care about the long term success of our company. And last, but not least, I can count on you to understand my half-finished thoughts because you are smart, flexible, and have a big heart!
Working with Kimberly was both a pleasure and honour. In my decade-plus time in Japan, I’ve never had the chance to work with someone of her talent and caliber. It was motivating and inspirational for me and I got so much out of working with her. I’m now able to use new activities, incorporate a different approach to learning and add value to my classes as well as connect more deeply with my workshop participants.
As an old program manager myself, and now as President of a large technology company, I find your book spot on the money. Your readers would do well to read the book several times and practice what your write until it becomes second nature. The world around them would become a much better place – and the satisfaction that goes with high achievement would fuel a long and successful career. While your book was written for program managers, it applies to anyone who works with people. It is a mus…
For Believing in us, showing up, and helping us realize our dreams – we thank you.
If you have the opportunity to take a workshop with Wiefling in person, don’t walk, RUN to sign up at your earliest opportunity. Her classes are Fun, Entertaining, high energy, and you learn some of the most incredible things. Don’t miss it. The only downside to her class is that everything else you take thereafter will pale in comparison. One of the finest class experiences I’ve ever had.
We had awesome event with you last Friday! I am still amazed from your workSHOCK. It was absolutely above all expectations! I would like to thank you personally and on behalf of all employees for a great time and all the useful insights. I am sure we will meet again soon, since I will promote for another workSHOCK asap! I did a short survey about how everyone understood and experienced it and they all love it. They all confirmed that it is great and useful to have activities that burst our organ…
I was fortunate to have Kimberly and her team facilitate a very engaging and productive session with my team of Technical Program Managers in Aug 2019. The intent was to energize and motivate the team to feel empowered and make changes to deliver better results. Kimberly spent an afternoon (many felt it was too short) delivering very compelling and thought provoking messages though interactive exercises that kept the group of ~60 people on their feet. Everyone left with a great deal of positi…
All the advice you gave me during our last meeting is paying off. Who could believe having a white board would do wonders – – just as you said. . . . this afternoon my manager said “You’re so organized and such a good communicator.
Kimberly helped our organization confront some key challenges we faced working as a team. She also assisted us in creating clear and shared goals, and a practical implementation plan that enabled us to overcome our difficulties in achieving results. Working with Kimberly was energizing, and her experience, practical knowledge and wisdom guided us for years after her workshop. I highly recommend consulting with Kimberly and her Silicon Valley Alliances Team, especially to achieve results in your …
Kimberly is one of the most enthusiastic and up-beat people I have ever worked with. She is driven by the belief that it is more than her job, it is her obligation, to make those around her successful. She is an exceptionally quick study with a firm grounding in science and engineering. Kimberly…easily identifies choke points to progress as well as opportunities for leverage. She is a model of persistence…
