White Paper: Five Gaps Between Traditional HR Software & the Committee Decision Model
“Such limitations suggest that the technology that looks best from a traditional HR perspective may in fact be hindering departments’ ability to make academic talent decisions in an efficient and strategic way.”
Is HR-driven software the wrong tool for academic committee decisions?
This Interfolio white paper frames the technical needs of shared governance in terms of five specific needs of the academic committee process that characteristically go unmet by compliance- and liability-oriented human resources information systems (HRIS).
For each need, we propose specific functions that any good academic technology for recruitment and review should include to address that need.
