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.
Employee On-Boarding is one of the most common day-to-day workflows. Many customers choose Live Forms for this and other HR workflows. With Live Forms, automating this workflow is easy and provides several benefits:
New employees only need to provide information once.
Errors and omissions are eliminated.
Required PDF documents like Federal and State W-4s are automatically generated.
Watch this short (3 min) video to quickly see how digitizing this routine workflow with frevvo can help save you time & money.
One of the business problems customers most frequently solve with frevvo is HR process automation. Routine things like Employee On-boarding, Leave Approvals etc.
These everyday activities take an exorbitant amount of time if done manually. Employees and managers are waiting longer than necessary and spending more time/money than necessary to tackle these routine tasks. There’s also a much higher rate of inaccuracy in the manual process. Our infographics and other blog articles discuss how frevvo’s affordable, cloud-based workflow products for HR process automation can improve efficiencies in these areas. We’ve also created a short (2 min) video below to show you the benefits of using frevvo for HR process automation.

The fact is that everyday approval processes such as employee on-boarding, leave approval and time sheets take an exorbitant amount of time if done manually. Employees and managers are waiting longer than necessary and spending more time/money than necessary to tackle these routine tasks. There’s also a much higher rate of inaccuracy in the manual process.
