Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS)
Technology is designed to make things easier, even HR, but small and medium businesses often still opt for paper files and notes on employees. Managing all of this for multiple employees leaves little time for other important tasks. From employee management to improving the company culture, more efficient solutions are necessary and that’s where a human resources information system (HRIS) changes everything.
How long does it take your HR department to dig through employee files for something as simple as celebrating a birthday or anniversary? How often do notes fall out of folders concerning vacation or a write-up? Is your HR office secure enough to protect employees’ privacy and maintain legal compliance?
All of these are issues even we had to consider. Our area of expertise is managing technology and we looked to that expertise to find a better way to manage HR as well.
As anyone in HR can tell you, it’s a difficult job. The more employees a business has, the harder it becomes to manage files efficiently and securely. Often, HR staff has to focus so much on processes that it’s impossible to focus on the employees. This is where an HRIS helps. Not only does it streamline common processes, but allows HR to better listen to employees to help improve the business and company culture.
Some of the tasks that HR saves time on include:
- Employee onboarding
- Employee management
- Managing PTO, benefits, and other employee details
- Managing compliance and legal issues
- Managing time cards
- Event planning
