Thank you for Subscribing to CIO Applications Weekly Brief
Following is the conversation that CIO Applications Magazine had with Mona Golden-Brown, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Carrera Lee, on how they aim to assist growing SMBs so that they easily navigate the rules and regulations of HR while cultivating a culture of harmony.
What are the challenges that clients face in the HR Tech space and how is Carrera Lee effectively addressing these issues?
The leading companies of tomorrow will recognize and seize the benefits of diversity and inclusion today. Harmony Roze guides clients to embed diversity,inclusion, and engagement into their day-to-day operations and practices that organically drive DEI initiatives. As technology becomes more and more of a commodity vs a differentiating strategy, the collective synergies of a workforce will create strategic differentiation that can’t easily be duplicated by competitors.
Walk the equity talk—organizations need to be able to consistently practice and authentically demonstrate values that engender an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Additionally, they need to be able to easily talk to the pulse of their workforce to ensure they feel heard, included, and are treated equally. We give them a platform that will make these practices a matter of standard operating procedure.
How does your technology support HR administration functions like managing organizational and employee data, employee and manager self-service, and benefits and payroll administration?
Harmony Roze comprises an HR & Talent Management Suite, a Workforce Management Suite, and a Benefits & Payroll Suite. Clients can implement basic and advanced features available in one or more of the suites when it is right for their organization.

workflows, configurable forms and reports, and real-time access to accurate and consistent employee information, which helps reduce administrative workload and minimize compliance risk.
