Talent is the most important determinant of success in the 21st century. Talent is scarce and the competition for the most in-demand skills is fierce. Retaining your best employees is harder than ever before. Attracting and retaining world-class talent has become a critical aspect of companies’ futures.
According to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data, more than one in three working Americans are millennials; more than any other generation in the labor force. By 2030, an estimated 75% of the workforce will be millennials. In order to stay competitive, you must engage with them now.
But, what are millennials looking for in companies today? Let’s take a look at some key aspects:
HR departments have gone through some changes in the recent years. Their responsibilities have shifted to be more aligned with the company’s overall goals rather than simply managing benefits and records-keeping for the workforce.
Since talent is now the #1 challenge companies face, that means HR must focus on attracting, retaining, and developing the best talent. HR employees in a successful, modern company cannot afford to waste time on paperwork.
To stay competitive in today’s business world, HR departments must evolve to be fully business integrated and need to streamline processes.
Access to world-class talent is the #1 determinant of success in the 21st century. As a result, HR employees have one of the most important roles in every company. They follow employees from the scouting and recruiting process all the way to the employee offboarding process and everywhere in between.
Every time we think we’ve got a handle on automation, new statistics emerge to challenge our perception. Just this month, McKinsey released a new report about the future of women at work, saying that an estimated 40 to 160 million women around the world will need to transition their skills.
But the report also pointed out that both men and women will be similarly affected by automation, just in different areas. Without a doubt, the effects of automated processes will be felt in every sector across all roles.
To understand the scale and importance of automation in the workplace, take a look at some of these key statistics.
Getting the on-boarding process right is critical for an organization to make sure every new hire feels comfortable, satisfied and welcomed in the organization. On-boarding done right leads to enhanced productivity and better retention of the new employee. Here are a few best practices that will help you improve your on-boarding process.
In today’s highly competitive business world, C-suite leaders have come to understand the advantages of a workforce aligned with business outcomes – as a result, HR has become the most important department. There’s increased emphasis on finding and retaining talent, creating world-class onboarding experiences and empowering employees to focus on work that matters so they can respond quickly to changes and drive positive business outcomes.
It’s a common requirement among our customers – they love the advantages of online workflows such as dynamic behavior and built-in mobile but need to generate their own PDF document. For example, a Federal W-4 or I-9 during Employee On-Boarding. With frevvo, you don’t have to choose.
Join us on this webinar on June 7 at 1.00 PM EDT. In just 45 minutes (including Q&A), we will:
show you examples that customers are using today, and
demonstrate how you can drag & drop to easily create your own custom PDFs.
You can generate multiple PDFs, conditionally generate some PDFs and not others (e.g. a state W-4 depending on which state the employee resides in), save these PDFs in back end systems, send them by email etc.
When people are freed up from routine back-office tasks like getting approvals, correcting errors on forms, and looking up part numbers manually, they have more time to focus on work that matters – customers, patients and students.
This is a crucial aspect of digitally transforming your business. Unless your hiring budgets are increasing 10-15% every year, there’s simply no way to do new things unless you stop doing old things. If you’re an organizational leader, one of the most important things you can do is create and write down a plan that clearly identifies the activities that you won’t be doing this time next year. Let employees know that you aren’t just paying lip service to digital transformation but it’s at the core of the next several years.
Automation isn’t coming; it’s here and it’s the opportunity of a lifetime
Just look around you. See those core business processes. One way or another, they’ll be automated. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime and it’ll change your organization.
Automating these core processes is about driving 50% (or greater) cost reductions in parts of your operations. It’s about changing and enhancing what your people do and don’t do and, most critically, it’s about boosting revenue growth.

Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville (OESJ) Central School District is a a small, rural K-12 district in upstate NY. Everything was done using paper and sneakers. Their Director of Technology, Bill Cooper, decided to tackle the problem of reducing paper use.
After investigating a few solutions, OESJ selected frevvo Cloud for its drag-and-drop design, robust dynamic forms, integration with Google Apps and other systems and the ability to route the form to different recipients based on user data.
Fantastic, everything we needed in one platform. “We are a small K-12 public school of fewer than 800 students and we are treated like a Fortune 500 company. If you’re serious about eliminating your paper documents, no matter the size of your company or organization, then frevvo is the answer.”

OESJ started with their Purchase Request workflow and digitized it to eliminate the paperwork, back-and-forth for chasing down signatures and corrections and error-handling. They’ve now automated Vacation Request and HR On-boarding workflows as well. The On-boarding workflow dramatically reduced duplicate data entry and automatically generates Government PDF forms like W-4 and I-9.
The benefits are enormous:
Inefficient paper forms with duplicate data entry have been eliminated and seamlessly replaced with online ones.
Integration with Google makes it easy to sign in; documents are also automatically uploaded to Google Drive.
Teachers spend less time chasing signatures and have more time to spend on students.
OESJ intends to continue digitizing additional forms & workflows such as Parent Permission forms and to integrate them with their School Information and Accounting systems.
