HR & HRMS: The New Hit Duo of Today’s Workplace
Love it or hate it, but human resources (HR) is the keystone of any organisation. The HR department looks after recruitment of employees, training, employee engagement, payroll and so on. Long story short, human resources management is no easy feat and needs to be practiced with utter care and diligence.
Fortunately, today we have human resources management systems or HRMS solutions that perform a number of key HR functions including payroll, performance reviews, attendance and time tracking, tax, benefits, etc. Simply put, a good cloud HR and payroll software takes a great deal of burden off the shoulder of HR.
A nexus of HRMS solution and HR is a sure-shot gateway for an efficient and productive human resources department.
1. Payroll Accuracy
Be it any update in the taxation policy or change in salary packages of employees, it is certainly a painstaking thing for HR personnel to keep abreast with the same using some legacy tool such as spreadsheet or other manual means. On the other hand, arming your HR department with a cloud based HRMS solution empowers them to stay updated with all the regulatory and statutory compliance changes thus, enabling error-free payroll processing and tax compliance. Not to forget, an automated HRMS solution eliminates human errors thus, eliminating payroll inconsistencies and redundancies. Most importantly, timely processing of payroll means happy employees and happy workforce infers a productive work environment.
HRMS software enables human resources personnel to store, manage and extract all the employee data in a centralised and unified location. All the critical employee data that you need is stored on a centralised hub and accessible at the click of a button. This instils a great degree of transparency whilst ensuring that the information stays up-to-date.
Automation capabilities of a cloud based HRMS solution makes the entire process of employee data and document management paperless. Going paperless means you reduce your carbon footprint to a great extent and enjoy an efficient HR crew. Eureka! Elimination of paperwork means you save more time and efforts that can be used in other innovative tasks.
There comes a time when a business is exposed to compliance problems, audits or lawsuit issues. During such untoward incidents, scattered data won’t be of any help when it comes to saving a business. However, having a robust HRMS solution during such times would surely pave a way out, since it keeps your HR department abreast with all the statutory and regulatory compliances by offering a centralised hub.
5. More time at hand
With a powerful cloud based HRMS solution in place, your HR crew can focus more on other strategic and core issues like growth and development of employees/company, training, leadership, engagement, etc. Without it, the HR department’s focus would mainly stay on managing payrolls, tracking time/attendance, managing timesheets, etc.
6. Never go wrong with Employee Recognition
Today, almost every HRMS solution available comes with performance management module that helps to automate employee performance thus, allowing managers to do fair performance reviews. Bid adieu to favouritism and the accompanying conflicts. Yes, a performance appraisal software tracks employee performance on a regular basis providing accurate reports.
