The COVID-19 pandemic has posed multiple challenges to the world. For organisations, employee wellbeing and engagement were the biggest challenge. This brought new challenges for the HR teams. They had to innovate new strategies to accommodate remote working without compromising employee engagement and productivity. Here, HR technology proved to be a great aid to HR teams.
However, not all organisations are optimising their technological capabilities. Organisations that smartly leverage HRMS platforms to drive their HR functions, enjoy numerous benefits.
Here are some of the most common benefits -
Helps you Focus on What Actually Matters
Organisations are expecting HR to play a more business-critical role. A few organisations have been able to achieve that while others are still playing catch-up. There is adire need for HR teams to adopt technology and work smarter. An effective HR strategy with relevant services, future-ready technology and a performance-measurement methodology is the need of the hour.
Reduces Manual Processes
HR is a human-centric function that puts relationships and experiences first. No doubt automation can't always do what face-to-face meetings can do. But the dividing line between automation and manual intervention is narrow.
It's not surprising to see many HR executives running helter-skelter to complete their tasks manually. It's probably because they are using only the basic tools. In certain cases, the HR team may not be properly trained to handle their own HRMS. Positive results will be seen only when smart work is combined with smart technology.
Garners Deeper Insights for Smarter Decisions
Data is everywhere, but not everybody gets what is required for well-informed decision-making. Whether it is for formulating growth-oriented HR policies, gauging employee sentiments or predicting talent requirements, every HR has to count on the disparate data present across a bunch of tools.
What if a unified platform could do all of this in one place? HR teams would love it since they can quickly run analytics for their activities and confidently present better MIS reports to the management.
Helps Employees Help Themselves
It's not uncommon to see HR team members getting exasperated while handling basic employee queries repeatedly. Of course, even the employees wouldn't want to pester them if there is a better option.
The self-service capabilities of an HRMS platform can address this concern. When employees have the facility to access information, submit applications and generate reports on their own, overdependence on HR is ruled out. This saves time and enables HR teams to focus on enhancing employee experience.
Improves Employee Satisfaction
It's hard to find the right people for the right job. It's now become even harder to retain them! Yes, every HR has to figure out new ways to focus on employee engagement, growth opportunities, grievance redressal and more.
When processes are automated and streamlined, more jobs get done faster. As a result, the HR team also has more time to groom the workforce. Also, the employees will have fewer reasons to complain and more reasons to smile. Satisfied and passionate employees are more likely to deliver better results for the organisation.
Averts Compliance Issues
Sometimes, even larger enterprises might find it tough to navigate the legal maze. Therefore, it wouldn't be surprising if others looked at compliance hurdles as a barrier. Litigation can not only affect the profitability of businesses but also adversely impact their brand image in the marketplace.
HR automation can help solve this puzzle since many modern platforms are designed to meet statutory requirements by default. Therefore, even if sudden changes are made to the labour laws, the statutory reporting team members need not fret.
Today's workforce is counting more on technology to get things done. But the challenge lies in selecting the essential tools to assist them.
