Jade Dellios of PwC discusses the challenge of establishing a collaborative partnership between HR and IT

'HR should engage IT from the start of any HR technology project'

One of the biggest challenges that HR professionals face when it comes to building an alliance with IT is in establishing a collaborative partnership between HR and IT where both are working towards a shared goal.

At the upcoming HR Tech Summit in Sydney, one of the panel topics for discussion is Leading Technology projects - building a strategic HR-IT alliance.

Jade Dellios, director, HR Technology, PwC, is moderating this panel discussion. She told HRD that it is especially important that HR and IT build a strategic alliance when it comes to HR technology projects.

“As PwC discovered through our annual HR Technology Survey, although the move towards cloud technology means there is less of a dependency on IT for activities such as development and environment maintenance, IT still has a key role to play,” she said.

“In particular, when it comes to helping HR to select and implement HR technology, and ensure that it is well integrated into the wider IT landscape of the organisation.”

She said HR should engage IT from the start of any HR technology project and ensure that IT are involved in the selection, implementation and then ongoing support model for the technology.

“Events like HR Tech Summit are important for the HR profession as it gives HR professionals a chance to hear some new ideas and find out what other organisations are doing with their HR Technology,” she said.

At the HR Tech Summit, Dellios and the panellists will also discuss:

•    How HR directors will join forces with CTOs to discuss ways that IT and HR can work together to create successful solutions.
•    Collaborative development efforts that blend HR knowledge and IT knowledge
•    Securing IT stakeholder buy-in to ensure effective implementation
•    Working effectively with IT teams who may not understand the needs and nuances of people management
•    Should HR or IT own HR technology roll-out?

Jade Dellios will be discussing Leading Technology projects - building a strategic HR-IT alliance at the HR Tech Summit being held at the Hilton Sydney on 13 September. Click here for more details and to register.
