The introduction of new technology has simplified systems and provided HR & Finance professionals with the ability to analyze their workforce data.

The sensitivity surrounding HR data is a growing concern for both companies and employees. Workers want to know that companies are using the data responsibly. If done correctly, employees build trust in the enterprise. This enhances the employee experience and builds a culture that inspires people to do their best work. Piper Key takes every precaution to ensure data is used appropriately and kept confidential when necessary. The ethical use of data is paramount to our success, and Piper Key strives to communicate this to all stakeholders on every engagement.
