Overview

Probably the biggest – and potentially most risky – undertaking for any Human Resources or payroll professional is the selection of new software. Additionally, it is almost inevitable that they will be involved with it at some point in their career.

The litany of failures in this area has been alarmingly high, from selecting the wrong systems in the first place all the way through to ineffective implementation; all of this against a heavy cost to the organisation in both financial terms and lost opportunities. Denis Barnard is a consultant specialising in the selection of HR & payroll systems, and other HRIS, and is acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading experts in the field.

Drawing on many years of experience, he gives crucial insight to the actions needed to minimise the risks inherent to this type of project, as well as a step-by-step blueprint of how the right result can be achieved. Written in a style aimed to demystify the relatively unknown, this is a “must have” for the practitioner’s bookshelf.

About the Author

Denis Barnard is a consultant specialising in the selection of HR & payroll systems, and other HRIS, and is acknowledged as one of the UK's leading experts in the field. In 1980, he transferred from a finance role to the HR function and in 1984 began his association with software when his then employers asked him to computerise the manual payroll. Two years later, he did the same for the HR data, and has been involved in this aspect of HR ever since.

Over the years he has worked in a broad range of sectors, Local Government, Higher Education, Music, Media, Technology, Manufacturing, Brewing and Retail to name but a few. Originally, his field was selection and implementation, but now he specialises almost totally on the former. In 2009, he founded and launched the HRIS comparison website HRcom- parison which at the time was the only site of its kind in the UK dedicated solely to HR & payroll software, and is still the source of choice for organisations and practitioners looking for systems information.

Apart from his consultancy work, Denis spends a significant amount of time producing articles, webinars, and seminars on HRIS topics. He is a director of the niche HRmeansbusiness consultancy and a contributor at Global Talent Advisors. Mainly based in South America, he is a keen naturalist and horticulturist in such spare time as he finds.
