When considering a new tool, you have so many factors to consider — technology features, your team's experience, and customer reviews — but evaluating industry awards and accolades can also be an important addition to your research. Here's why.

When you're exploring the wide array of HR products and tools available today, how do you build a short list of those most likely to lead to efficiency and increased productivity?

You will likely factor in your specific business needs, what the technology offers, and your team's experience with similar products. You'll also probably look into customer reviews and testimonials or check with others in your field to find out what they're using.

The value of industry awards

Industry awards and accolades can also play an important role in your process. Prestigious grantors of such awards typically engage in a thorough evaluation and vetting process. Why not rely on their research to help augment yours?

The documentation by award panels, made of business veterans and leaders in the HR and IT spaces, can make it easier to understand the HR technology software landscape quickly. The information often includes reviews of key features, identification of notable capabilities, customer testimonials and user feedback.

When layered into your decision-making process, consideration of award winners and finalists provides valuable insights into the most effective and cutting-edge HR tools and technology solutions available. It's an easy way to help you get closer to identifying the solution best for your company's needs.
