There is nothing typical about an HR managers’ work day. And, depending on the size of the company, an HR managers’ job could encompass; resume screening, recruitment, interviews, retention and that’s just to name a few of the activities that can take up their day. Today’s HR managers are making use of HCM, Talent Management and Time and Attendance Solutions to align their employees with common HR processes and promote a culture of compliance.

Andrew Ly of HRMorning captures a day in the life of the HR manager, with an insightful article titled, 7 ways HRMS can transform your HR department. Below are some excerpts from the article.

     

1.Manage the hiring process more efficiently

An HRMS solution won’t have as many specialized features as a dedicated ATS software, but it will have the benefit of retaining applicant information if they are hired and onboarded. You’ll also be able to analyze this data and generate reports on the types of candidates that ultimately become successful employees.

2.Engage employees with onboarding and training

Once you’ve hired the right candidate, it will be important for you to keep them engaged from the beginning. Employees that go through a structured onboarding program are 58% more likely to stay with an organization after three years.

With HRMS, onboarding can start even before the new employee reaches the office. Employees can sign administrative documents electronically, catch up on company news and business goals, and join virtual social networks of colleagues. On their first day, they’ll have more time to tour the facility, set up their equipment and hit the ground running.

3. Save time with a self-service portal

Employees often have specific questions about their salaries, benefits and time off. Answering these vital yet routine questions, however, can take up a huge chunk of your day. With a self-service portal, employees can access their information any time, from a remote site or on their mobile phone.

4. Reduce business errors with automated processes and a central database

You know how important it is to maintain accurate payroll and compliance records. Any mistake is not just a headache but also a potential lawsuit. HRMS automates these processes, so that you can worry less about costly errors. It can calculate wages and salaries, deduct the correct amount of taxes and benefits, and print checks or execute direct deposits.

5. Accelerate employee performance

Employees are more productive when they feel that business objectives are aligned with their skill sets and accomplishments are properly rewarded. Yet it may not be clear to you how employees are doing in their roles and whether or not they are succeeding.

6. Understand why employees leave

When an employee leaves, you conduct an exit interview to understand why. The information you get, however, may not always be accurate. Perhaps there are strong emotions surrounding the departure or the employee doesn’t feel comfortable being honest in person.

7. Support your decisions with evidence

Businesses are increasingly looking to HR for more data-driven initiatives and strategies. Whether its recruiting more efficiently, increasing engagement or reducing turnover, senior management wants your decisions to be backed up with quantifiable metrics.

Bottomline: Today’s HR practitioners are acutely aware of the benefits of deploying an cloud-based application like, ATSTimeWorkOnDemand and how it can help increase team efficiency and productivity, by boosting revenue through automation.

So, whether you have 50 or 500 employees in one province, state or country, or 7,000 in several regions, ATSTimeWorkOnDemand HCM cloud will boost engagement and create a great workforce experience for your HR department and company, as a whole.

Google Is On The Verge Of Shaking Up The Recruitment Industry

July 20th, 2017 | Posted by ATS in Google | Machine Learning | Recruitment Software - (Comments Off on Google Is On The Verge Of Shaking Up The Recruitment Industry)

When Google announced it was entering the recruitment space, some wondered why? A behemoth like Google would have done its due diligence before deciding to use its power to offer job seekers and employers alike a difference choice.

 

Google Is On The Verge Of Shaking Up The Recruitment Industry

In her article,  for HR Dive, titled Google for Jobs now open to site owners and job seekers Valerie Bolden-Barrett writes in part;

“Google for Jobs is a potential game-changer for employers and job seekers that stands to revolutionize recruiting. Right now, the new search largely pulls from major recruiting websites to formulate search results — but this new behavior could change how the big job boards work. They were already keeping an eye on changing behaviors from applicants that opted for mobile capabilities. Google could further disrupt the marketplace.

Much like LinkedIn and Glassdoor, which forced employers to reconsider external channels of input, Google for Jobs could herald changes in recruitment strategy. Google’s use of AI and machine-learning in the process is nothing less than what’s expected of an innovative high-tech company, and is largely in-line with what experts predicted for online recruiting going forward.”

It has also been reported that the new job search engine will have filters to narrow down jobs. For example, a candidate can sort by full-time or part-time, the job titles, category and posting date. And, that Google will also add a filter for commute times, so candidates do not have to apply for dream positions that require sitting in traffic for two hours.
