HR Tech Stack Consolidation: Is it the Solution?

There’s been a recent trend toward techstack consolidation in the HR industry.

The HR tech space has recently seen HRIS platforms innovating and adding new features like a salary review tool to offer a ‘one-stop shop’ solution. Performance management platforms have become HRIS and HRIS tools have added compensation reviews. In the case of compensation management; however, those who have relied on an all-in-one Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) or Human Capital Management (HCM) platforms have found that they seldom meet expectations.

Consolidating all HR needs into one platform may result in a lack of efficiency and effectiveness, and ultimately missing the mark in meeting critical business needs. When deciding whether or not to go with a solution that does them all (versus separate expert vendors that integrate), consider the nuance of the business needs for your HR programs to ensure the HR tech solution will still meet at least the majority of those needs.

Limitations of Consolidating HR Tech

Users of such platforms end up experiencing a lack of flexibility and frustration at how unintuitive the tools are to use, and ultimately not meeting companies' needs. Often, consolidated tools are built by those with no compensation management experience. For example, many compensation tools were built by engineers who focus on adding a new feature as soon as possible without incorporating the understanding and all the pros and cons of different compensation-related approaches.
