Companies are striving to lower the cost of hiring, improve employee satisfaction, and increase talent retention. New software and technologies are being incorporated into many HR processes. They help attract and retain talent while increasing operational efficiency.
From all-in-one HR suites to smaller-scale but more agile “point” system solutions – e.g. ones that focus on a specialized area (e.g., applicant tracking, employee engagement, – there are many software platforms on the market. Choosing the right technologies to meet the needs of your organization and optimize ROI can be quite a daunting task.
In the 21st century, companies must fight to stay competitive. Yet, too many companies are overlooking the most effective way to do so — automation. Many of HR’s most important processes are time consuming, paper-based, inefficient, and costly.
In fact, According to an IDC survey,The Document Disconnect, over 80 percent of business leaders surveyed agreed that problems “arise because they have different internal systems/applications that don’t ‘talk’ to each other.” Clearly, this is an issue that needs to be solved fast.
Modernizing these HR functions will give your company a huge advantage. Since automation software is becoming necessary and more common, here are some important statistics to keep in mind as you make the switch.
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.
Employee Leave Management is one of the main things HR departments handle. But, many companies get bogged down in unnecessarily long, complicated processes. Here are 5 common mistakes that can hurt your company, and ways to fix them.
1. Creating a “Vacation Shaming” Culture
In many companies, employees have to deal with comments about choosing to take vacation. These can come from higher-ups at the company, but more often than not, they come directly from peers. We’ve all heard the “You’re taking a vacation? How nice, I wish I had the time to do that,” comment.
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.
… or Amazoned or AirBnB’d? Think about it. When was the last time you went into a travel agency to book your flight? Printed out directions for your road trip? Walked into the bank to write a check for cash? We can’t remember either.
The HR Department usually has broad reach within most organizations and often deals with a high volume of processes and policies. Yet many HR specialists still routinely manage requests through email, phone calls and paper forms. In fact, 40% of their time is spent on administrative work such as entering data from one systemto another.
