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.
