HR Technology Selection Projects – Free Masterclass

Free Half Day Masterclass Workshop – HR Technology Selection Projects

London, 15th November 2018 – Hosted by Phase 3 & CIPHR

There are only a few places remaining for the free half-day HR technology masterclasses that Phase 3 are hosting with CIPHR on 15th November in central London.

Register now to secure your place and discover insider secrets to choosing the right HR software for your organisation.


Phase 3 was recently approached by CIPHR because of our expertise in providing independent HR technology consultancy. Of particular interest was the evolving area concerning how HR selects, develops and enhances HR systems technology to meet operational and strategic goals. Our Managing Director, Kate Wadia, contributed towards research for the CIPHR White Paper, “Better Together: The Future for HR Systems Integration”, published in June.


Cathryn Newbery of CIPHR interviewed Kate to talk about why HR professionals need to look beyond glossy trade shows in their quest to find the right HR software, how to tell if you need to upgrade your technology and why tender processes don’t always lead to the best result. Kate described that when she was first tasked with leading an HR systems project as part of her former in-house HR role, she “thought that was something you just did as an HR person. I found it wasn’t quite so easy; it was a desperately dark art”.

Ahead of the free HR Technology masterclass that Kate is running (with her colleague, Tony Munday), Cathryn asked a range of questions that many HR professionals face:

  • How can an HR team go about identifying a need for HR technology?
  • What are some of the signs that an existing HR solution is no longer fit for purpose?
  • What are the best ways of understanding if a product might be the right fit for your organisation?
  • Who are you seeing leading in-house HRIS projects: HR, IT or procurement teams?
  • What are some of the key causes of failed HR systems projects?
  • Are tender processes useful for helping to understand the scope of a project?
