The Human Resource Management (HRM) function of any organization is one of the most undervalued and overworked business units. HRM professionals are supposed to know the answers to all questions that employees may have and should always be available to support the employee. As they are also the ones responsible for hiring and boarding an employee, they also have to deal with a lot of paperwork. In addition to rendering the HRM process ineffective, this also keeps HR professionals away from their most important job function and turns them into paper pushers.
Is this really what you want your HR team to focus on? Isn’t there some way that you can eliminate these mundane tasks and become more productive?
It exists, and it’s called human resource management software. Also called online HR software, this solution is a collection of HR best practices from around the world and helps organizations manage their HR needs much more efficiently and productively. With this software, organizations can save their HR teams time by automating those tasks that do not require human intervention and simplifying the process. An important feature of this software is the employee self-service feature, which enables employees to become active participants in the HRM process and thereby alleviate the workload of the HR team.
So what tasks are automated? How much involvement is needed from the HR team?
As mentioned above, this software is a collection of best HRM practices from around the world. We all know that a completely manual process is very inefficient and a completely automated process is not feasible. After all, there has to be someone to monitor and control the software. And, of course, your employees would want a human touch rather than fully automated software.
So, to answer the questions, mundane, mundane tasks that don’t need any human intervention are automated. For example, when someone completes their self-assessment, the norm is for the HR professional to collect the assessment forms and send an acknowledgment to the employee that the completed assessment has been received. But with HR management software, the HR professional need not bother. The system generates automatic notifications each time an appraisal has been submitted, notifying the employee that it has been successfully submitted and notifying the HR professional that an appraisal has been completed.
Apart from this, CV sourcing is a more automated task. Users can configure this software in such a way that they get CVs from multiple sources like emails and job sites. Time and attendance are also automated. Organizations can use biometric solutions or ID cards to capture precise details and the software will calculate the times. Users can generate reports to measure employee performance across all business units or across the organization.
So now that we’ve seen the various benefits that the software offers, what do you think? Do you think this software is useful for your organization? Leave a comment below to talk to us.
