Governing Webinar: How Back-Office Modernization Can Transform Human Capital Management in State & Local Government

Back-office tasks like human capital management (HCM) consume large amounts of budget and time — especially when legacy IT systems are involved. As a result, human resources professionals often get bogged down with inconsistent, paper-based processes that make it difficult for them to focus on their core missions. But back-office modernization, including cloud-based HCM systems, can help government agencies increase efficiency, save money, improve decision-making and better serve citizens.

Join Governing January 16th at 11:00 PT/2:00 ET as we explore how back-office modernization can help government organizations address HCM challenges and enable human resources professionals to focus on the development of a vibrant, engaged workforce.

We’ll discuss:
- How back-office modernization can automate manual tasks and workflows to help HR professionals provide more value
- How organizations can use cloud-based HCM to optimize day-to-day decisions and offer a more streamlined experience to their workforce
- How modernizing the back-office can also help government agencies transform employee recruitment and retention, financial management and more.
