SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 3, 2013) - When the words "expand globally" are uttered in board rooms around the globe, human resource (HR) and human resource information technology professionals (HRIT) shudder. However, expanding organizations can rely on the Going Global with HR survey from the industry experts at Jeitosa Group International to determine their path forward and the leading practices they should implement. Now in its sixth year, the study is supported by the International Association of Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM) and analyzes leading practices in global HR covering strategy, organization design, business processes, people/culture, and technology.

According to Bill Kutik, analyst, columnist, and father of the HR Technology Conference, "HR is awash in surveys, but amid the clutter, one study stands out for HR's international issues and the challenges in going global: Jeitosa Group International's Going Global with HR study."

Last year, HR professionals from more than 150 global companies across all continents responded to the survey. The results revealed:

  • Shared Services: Productive organizations are adopting multi-function Shared Services and finding efficiencies by moving to regional and global shared services models to handle transactional work.
  • System Consolidation: Top performing organizations move with a sense of focus and persistence to consolidate their systems to as few vendors as possible.
  • Metrics & Analytics: Innovative organizations have developed advanced metrics frameworks with root-cause analysis, real-time dashboards, and predictive analytics to support informed business decisions.
  • Cross-Cultural Competence: The higher performing organizations develop cross-cultural competencies and foster strong global mindsets through their global approach to governance and process standardization.

Beaman, CEO of Jeitosa and a long-standing member of IHRIM, commented, "Busy HR and HRIT professionals receive numerous invitations every year to participate in surveys. Now in our sixth year, Jeitosa consistently receives feedback that our going global research is among the most meaningful to this already stretched group of professionals. Plus, Jeitosa believes in sharing more than just a copy of the findings -- we go the extra distance to offer respondents an hour-long debrief to evaluate how their organization compares to others based on the results."

Survey respondents receive a complimentary copy of the report as well as invitations to webinars detailing the findings. Respondents are eligible for an hour long debrief with one of Jeitosa's Global Strategic Advisors to evaluate how their organization compares to others in the survey.
