Managing attendance in a HR system

Administering processes manually within your human resources (HR) department can lead you to trouble. They are time-consuming, which doesn’t allow your HR department to automate or time to focus on bigger-picture improvements. On top of that, they can lead to human error, causing mistakes, which can substantially slow down your overall operations.

With cloud-based HR automation tools at your disposal, you can enhance key-processes that will help your business improve culture, boost transparency and reach identified goals.

Increase Your Productivity In These Areas With HR Automation Tools

Essential and strategic HR management processes should be automated with cloud-based systems, platforms, modules or applications. The following can be improved with HR automation tools.

Performance Management

When this process is administered manually, it’s extremely hard to track goals, manage for fair compensation evaluations or even have enough time to truly create an efficient performance management process. HR automation tools can help improve performance evaluations for administrators, managers, and employees by automating numerous workflows, acquiring advanced analytics, sending out templated communications, providing a customized scoring system and more.

When employees feel properly evaluated and compensated, it will only build the employer brand further because you will be doing right for the workforce. Today’s top talent is looking for fair compensation, ample opportunity for growth and great work culture. Improving the performance management process is just one step into making your employer brand a gold standard in your industry.

Benefits Management

Without automating benefits management process, HR administrators and employees go through a painful ritual once or twice per year. With benefits enrollment, messaging is too confusing and time-consuming to relay. You go through meeting-after-meeting, trying to relay benefits facts that employees just seem to not be able to understand. You have to time your communications and manually send them off to “All staff” just to remind them that Open Enrollment is happening and they better make their selections soon.

With HR automation tools to help you administer the benefits management process, you and employees will experience these improvements:

  • Employees can compare, analyze and check plan costs prior to enrollment
  • Employees can print consolidated benefit statements at any time
  • Administrators can configure rules for specified benefit options to appear in employee portals based on set criteria
  • Employee selections are seamlessly sent to appropriate carriers via Electronic Data Interface (EDI) transfer
  • Benefits deductions sent directly to payroll

Employee Self-Service (Portal)

With an employee portal implemented and synced with a few varying modules, you will be able to allow employees to:

  • Manage PTO
  • Clock in and out
  • Review and select their benefits
  • Download and print pay stubs, W-2 and ACA forms
  • Track goals and manage performance
  • Submit expense reports
  • Take surveys
  • Access company documentation and more

HR administrators can configure the features, content available and access based on company priorities and other rules determined. An employee portal allows you to center your focus on more meaningful projects over being an information finder for employees.
