Adopting HR software is becoming a must-have for modern companies looking to make their operations more efficient and ensure their employees have a quality experience. However, traditional HRMS, HRIS, and HCM systems are built around individual data and don’t offer any sort of organizational structure management. This is a problem for large companies that need to keep track of their workforce and organizational structure and plan for the long term.

COLMEIA’s suite solves this problem by maximizing the ROI of your HR software investment and guaranteeing that value is being spread company-wide. It allows you to structure your workforce by transforming a heterogenous job landscape into a multi-language, standardized job catalog and map out your employees to the positions they really fill. Data collection and entry are made easier with the suite’s single point of truth and approval workflow, allowing you to integrate all relevant employees into the process and save time with mass assignments and translations.

Additionally, the suite ensures the accuracy of data, compliance with both internal and external rules, and consistency of data across all levels. Finally, it helps overcome internal resistance to HR software by providing accurate and consistent data to those who use it and by involving all stakeholders in the process with individual access rights.

Aligning your people with your business strategy is paramount to achieving your organization’s goals. COLMEIA allows you to create the necessary transparency.

Which roles and skills are available in your workforce today, and which will you need in the future? Which are the critical roles, and how will your workforce demographics change?

Identifying the gaps becomes easy. COLMEIA helps create greater organizational resilience and agility in HR, improve employee experience, identify and address future talent needs, and retain people cost-effectively.
