All HR departments are driven by common administrative functions that rely heavily on document intensive packages and processes as well as standardized routines that include communication with state and federal agencies as well as third parties.
Electronically managing your HR documents can increase efficiency and lower costs associated with manually storing, processing and searching for records. Managing all of your applicant and employee records from hiring to retiring through a digital HR record management solution is a source of competitive advantage for leading companies.
What HR Processes Should be Automated?
- Benefits processing. With automation, employees can change their own personal information and benefits selections online themselves, saving everybody time, paperwork, and frustration.
- Scheduling. With automated scheduling tools, HR can gain a better picture of the organization’s staffing needs as well as costs. This allows them to spend less time figuring out appropriate staffing levels or troubleshooting scheduling problems.
- Payroll data transfer and salary change requests. These processes can be especially time-consuming when done through traditional methods. An HR processes automation solution can help employees avoid having to enter and re-enter an employee’s pay information. This also helps avoid errors, which you particularly want to avoid in this area.
- Time sheet tracking and approvals. Instead of wasting time tracking down employees, composing reminder emails, and making sure each timesheet gets to the right supervisor, HR employees can automate these processes, saving a great deal of time.
- Onboarding and offboarding of employees. These could be the processes that benefit the most from automation. Often during the onboarding and offboarding process, employees are kept waiting due to simple issues that have fallen through the cracks. For example, a new employee might start on a Monday, but not get her company email and server account set up until Wednesday because IT wasn’t notified on time. That’s two whole days of productivity lost.
