What are challenges that your company faces and how do you plan to overcome them?
While we have evolved a business centric HR platform, we still have customers who do not want to automate their current HR processes and stick to age-old practices. While the CXO agree to our approach for adopting new gen practices, change management at the operational levels is often a challenge. We try and do change management workshops proactively and try to get such groups to see the benefits of ZingHR.
