Frisco, Texas  (April 1, 2016) – HRchitect, a leading provider of HCM systems strategic consulting services, announced today that company experts will present educational sessions at several conferences across the United States this month.

An overview of upcoming conference educational sessions, including Oracle HCM World, PeopleTech Expo, and LEHRN HR Tech Expo, follows:

 Oracle HCM World – “Mary Kay and Global Recruiting: A Case Study”

Mary Kay is one of the largest direct-selling companies in the world. In order to continue to recruit and develop its large base of representatives, Mary Kay implemented Oracle HCM Cloud. Mary Kay initially went live with the Oracle solution in the US, and after that was successful, Mary Kay and HRchitect partnered to implement recruiting and onboarding solutions in China and Brazil, in a phased global approach. Join Tom LaMarre, Vice President of Taleo Implementation Services at HRchitect, Danelle Rowley, Director of Global HR Technology & Data Management at Mary Kay, and Gayathri Reddy, HR Technology Consultant at Mary Kay as they explore the decision drivers that resulted in using Oracle HCM Cloud as a global recruiting system. The presentation will also examine strategies and lessons learned from using existing configurations and processes to roll out to different global regions and meet local recruiting and onboarding requirements including activation of additional languages.

This presentation will be held on Wednesday April 6th at 12:00PM as an educational session under the “Finding People” conference track at the annual Oracle HCM World conference in Chicago, Illinois. Attendees are also encouraged to visit the HRchitect kiosk (kiosk 41) in the HCM Showcase, where Tom LaMarre will be available to answer additional questions and attendees can enter to win one of four Mary Kay gift baskets.

PeopleTech Expo – “HCM Still On-Premise? How to Build Your Business Case for Cloud HCM”

Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of how to use three key levers to drive their business case, common myths about Cloud HCM and how to bust those myths, as well as creative methods to sell the cloud initiative internally to obtain approval for an upgrade.

This presentation will be held on Wednesday April 13th at 1:30PM as an educational session at the inaugural PeopleTech Expo in Irving, Texas. Attendees are also encouraged to visit HRchitect in booth 205 in the Expo Hall to speak with the HRchitect team and enter to win a $250.00 cash prize.

Jacqueline will show you how to get started with HR technology – the basics of an HR technology strategy, an overview of the types of solutions and vendors in the marketplace today, and tips to optimize the effectiveness of your human resources department through your HR technology.

Jacqueline will walk you through the basics of identifying your requirements, show you how to organize your team and sponsors, give you an overview of the vendor evaluation & selection process, and offer best practices to manage the implementation process.  Attendees will leave the session with an understanding of how to choose the best-fit HR technology for your organization and ensure that the technology selected will deliver real benefits to the business. Whether your organization is looking at HR technology for the first time or are upgrading from an outdated system, this session will give you the methodologies that work for SMB’s.
