“HR consultants can provide a valuable resource for those companies with complex HRIS/HRMS selection needs, provided they have the experience with the various HR systems on the market,” the article notes. “Overworked or understaffed HR departments may not have the time and energy to devote to the entire HR systems selection process.”
