Human resources is possibly one of the hardest jobs possible. Yet, it’s often overlooked when it comes to using better technology and solutions to improve processes and efficiency.
We were guilty of the same thing. While we focused on upgrading and improving overall systems, HR wasn’t a top priority until we discovered a better way – human resources information systems or HRIS.
Common HR Problems
HR personnel spend countless hours digging through files, ensuring files are kept secure and trying to ensure no employees are overlooked for rewards or write-ups? We realized how much time was wasted on repetitive tasks and not enough time spent on employee needs. Another problem we noticed and other businesses have is outdated data. While there are notes about updating employee details, there’s just not enough time to do it all.
All Data Centralized
Scattered data is all too common for HR. Human resources management systems eliminate this problem. We know first hand how data gets stashed in file cabinets, various digital documents and various computers. Now, it’s all in one place. This eliminates extensive searching since HR employees are able to search one database for all employee information.
Human resources information systems not only allow businesses to enter all relevant employee data in a single place, but access the most up-to-date data in real-time. With everything in a single location, HR employees only need to query the platform for any details on a single employee or all employees in a department or even see overviews of the entire business.
Share Resources With Employees
With an HRIS, businesses are able to upload files to share with employees. These could include training modules, an employee handbook, commonly used forms and more. Businesses can even upload employee onboarding documents for employees to look through and sign. This makes it even easier to get new employees started.
Securely Store Documents
Since we work in the IT industry, we take security seriously. This is why we loved the idea of a secure storage environment for all related HR documents, such as employee driver’s licenses, performance assessments, disciplinary details and more.
