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.
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
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
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.
HR practitioners are acutely aware of the benefits of deploying an cloud-based application
and how it can help increase team efficiency and productivity, by boosting revenue

have 50 or 500 employees in one province, state or country, or 7,000 in several
regions, ATSTimeWorkOnDemand HCM

your HR department and company, as a whole.

The use of biometrics at theme parks, airports and in the workplace, has become ubiquitous. However, facial recognition for the purpose of recording an employee time in/out at work, is different than what it is being used at an airport. For example, a biometric time clock, in a workplace will record (for the purpose of payroll) the time an employee clocked in for a day or week-whereas, the purpose of biometrics at an airport will be for security and a range of other purposes.
Installing biometrics in the workplace can help with HR related issues like time theft, buddy punching and payroll errors. However, it is important to let your employees know if you decide to install biometrics for the purpose of tracking time and attendance, especially if your company, have been using paper time sheets to track hours before that.
“As more companies track their workers with
fingerprint and facial scans, employees are increasingly challenging firms in
court over how that biometric data gets used and stored.
Scores of lawsuits have been filed
following a recent state Supreme Court ruling in Illinois, which has the most
stringent privacy law protecting such information in the U.S. The suits assert
that employees weren’t told what would happen to their biometric data and that
it is being put at risk.
Some workers said they don’t see the need
for biometrics in the workplace.
“It’s not a secretive place that we work
in,” said one worker at a country club outside Detroit, whose employer uses
fingerprints to take attendance. She said she was uncomfortable with the
practice, adding that she hadn’t been told how her information would be used or
From warehouses to restaurants, the use of biometric data is moving from a niche practice to become a more mainstream way to verify employee hours and check workers in and out of facilities for security reasons. Among companies in the U.S., Europe and Canada surveyed in 2018 by Gartner, 6 percent said they track employees by using biometric data. Europe and Canada surveyed in 2018 by Gartner, 6 percent said they track employees by using biometric data.”
Bottom line: If
you decide to explore the many options that a biometric time clock system offers,
let your employees know of your intention. Chances are they will be more accepting
if they know in advance and you will avoid issues of them not being receptive
to it. Afterall, employees are familiar with biometric technology and have
likely used them at airports or with their current smartphone.

Spreadsheets serve a good purpose. And several companies use them. In fact, some of ATS financial analysts and even some, in the professional service areas like; software engineers use spreadsheets to measure results. However, this data usually comes in from outside big data tools as oppose to being keyed in manually. The potential to run into errors when manually keying data into spreadsheets is real,especially, when you are dealing with things like leave management and employee attendance.
Review company attendance policies to ensure that any mandatory notice periods (i.e., 2 weeks’ notice for a planned doctor’s appointment) do not violate the sick leave law.
Update hiring notices and workplace posters.
Educate supervisors on how to spot fraud or abuse without inadvertently retaliating against employees for using paid leave. Most laws prevent employers from seeking any verification unless an employee has been absent three consecutive working days.
Review payroll practices to ensure employees are receiving the proper rate of pay for the use of sick leave, and that pay stubs include any required information.
Develop a consistent tracking method to ensure that employees accurately accrue time, and that any time used is properly credited and deducted from the balance.
And, while this article is specific to regions in the state of Minnesota, their impact will reverberate across other US states. Also, while labour laws and leave management tracking are different in Canada they could eventually make their way north of the border.

Employee conflict occurs on every team, whether it’s in little league baseball or in your professional work settings. How the leader of the team, handles conflict can either make or break the cohesion of the team— moreover, no one benefits when these conflicts are ignored—not the employees or managers.
Be explicit about the value conflict can bring: As a team leader, subtly trying to influence the level of conflict in your team won’t work. You need to be explicit in your expectations and why a degree of conflict is needed and valuable for performance. Make it clear that differences of opinion within the team are both inevitable and useful. As a leader, state how you expect people to share their opinions, especially when they differ from the group, as this may help uncover assumptions, enlarge the pool of available information and shine a light on what matters most to those involved in certain tasks. Left buried, these differing opinions can derail a team; aired openly for consideration, the team can use put the insight to good use.
Back conflict ideals with role modeling: It’s no use asking people to share their opinions and reacting negatively or defensively when they do. Remember the positive intent that’s often at the core of conflict; when someone is bold enough to share a controversial opinion it often reflects a deep level of care and passion for what they do. As a leader, listen for what it is a team member is protecting or trying to improve. Aim to explore and understand, rather than resolve and answer.
Invest time upfront co-creating and establishing the team ground-rules: It’s common for a team to spend time clarifying its purpose but much rarer for a team to invest time explicitly discussing how people will work together and provide constructive challenge to the group. Contracting this in advance creates positive expectations and lays the foundations for building trust and clear communication. Alongside explicitly stating the value of conflict, spark a team discussion around: what would it take for people to feel able to speak without censorship? How can we disagree with each other whilst always ensuring people feel respected?
Pre-empt relationship conflict with personality insight: Inevitably team members will have different values and styles in the way they interact with others at work. The more self-awareness and understanding team members have of each other’s preferences and how these may differ from their own, the less likely team members will be caught off guard or misinterpret someone’s style or approach. This insight helps stimulate and structure discussion around some of the personal differences it’s easy to overlook as a team.
Bottom-line: Understanding the reasons behind workplace conflicts can help managers tackle problems before—or after—a conflict turns into a face-off between departments that refuse to work together or a screaming match between colleagues.
