Ronda Grimsley, Founder and CEO
In today’s fast-paced global economy, a robust HCM technology can not only improve HR operations by saving time and money but can also significantly add organizational value through analytics. However, organizations in their pursuit of reinventing their HR technology through HCM often tend to incorporate scores of disparate systems that usually do not function well together. Ronda Grimsley, founder and CEO of Triad HR, jokingly refers to this phenomenon as the ‘spaghetti bowl’ of HR technology where companies growing organically or through acquisitions often end up with multiple core-level technologies. “Organizations integrating their core HR components with independent functional systems often require over-engineered interfacing technologies for them to work in an optimized manner,” remarks Ronda. These integrations, in turn, incur additional operational costs further complicating the HCM roadmap of the organization. Triad HR, a leading HCM expert, marks its eminence by mitigating this complexity through its exceptional expertise in HCM implementations.
Established in 2004 as an HR services firm, Triad HR has progressively transitioned into the HCM Cloud technology space. With this development, Ronda channeled her valuable experience in HR consulting toward assisting organizations to evaluate their current HCM landscape and create a suitable HCM roadmap. The Triad HR team helps its clients in selecting the right HCM cloud technology through a demonstration-focused approach supported by an online request for proposal system. Based on proven implementation paradigms, Triad HR ensures that the client’s HCM cloud implementations effectively leverage their technology investments.
“Today, Triad HR is instrumental in helping organizations look at their existing HR technology landscape, capitalize on current investments, evaluate other infrastructure options, and create the right investment for future growth.”
Triad HR commands an unparalleled experience in serving as an extension of their client’s HR operations team while working alongside them to ensure a successful transition to a cloud-based unified HCM system. The company augments the client’s HR operations staff with seasoned HR technologists deployed into roles that deliver critical path deliverables such as HR functional business requirements, data conversion, testing and cutover plans. Furthermore, given the complexity and large-scale investments involved in cloud HCM system deployments, Triad HR also helps its clients in choosing the right implementation partner across ecosystems. Triad HR’s team establishes a robust communication between the implementation partner and the client, helping the client to accurately determine resource requirements and the realistic time frame for a successful implementation.
As a record of Triad HR’s dexterity, Ronda cites the success story of a Texas-based client. Triad HR worked with this specific client for three years on various HR technologies such as payroll, time tracking, performance management and compensation. Leveraging the expertise of Triad HR and their existing investments in Oracle Cloud, the client was able to define their HCM approach and supplement their project teams in rolling out a global Oracle HCM platform. In one of the past engagements, Triad HR also helped the client in implementing Kronos’ workforce management solutions worldwide, making them the second organization in the world to go live with Kronos time tracking in Poland. Building upon their client’s Kronos investments, Triad HR was able achieve a global footprint by bringing in the unified state-of-the-art Oracle HCM into the picture.
Ronda envisions the company to grow in terms of both the headcount and offerings pertaining to HCM strategic support for their clients. “In line with our future endeavors, our focus will be to ensure that our unique, systems-agnostic approach combined with tremendous expertise in HCM cloud technology can be leveraged across diverse domains worldwide,” concludes Ronda.
