How To Banish HR Admin to The Last Century

Growing Businesses Can Mean Growing HR Tasks

While it may have been simple for your business to manage the HR admin tasks when there were only a handful of employees, significant growth can quickly bury your company under heaps of paperwork, bulky spreadsheets and monotonous, time-consuming tasks.


So How Do You Manage All These Systems?

Thankfully, we live in an age of technology in which manual HR tasks can be automated and simplified. There are four key ways in which HR systems can help your small businesses as you grow:


Centralise Information

Having accessible HR data stored in one place is critical for improving efficiency. The system we recommend is a simple, intuitive, and all-in-one HR system. It’s built to be responsive so that it works on all of your devices, meaning it’s easy to access information and complete tasks wherever you are. Because it’s clean and so easy to use all of our clients find the burden of HR admin and messy spreadsheets a thing of the past.


Improve Performance

Time and again studies have revealed the importance of effective performance management in employee retention and productivity. Generating comprehensive reports, managing appraisals, giving praise and setting objectives are just a few of the many ways an online management system helps to boost performance.

The system we recommend is also designed to open up communication channels, enabling businesses to share company objectives and news with their employees. This open communication is especially important as your company grows and will help everyone still feel engaged with your business.


Manage Absence

Thankfully, spreadsheets are an outdated and inefficient way to manage employee holiday and sickness. Having to manually keep it updated and making sure you’ve got all those calculations correct is a real headache. Our online system includes employee self-service at every level. When HR users enable this on the holiday feature, absence management becomes instantaneous. Issues with leave requests are immediately avoided because of the instant online access employees and managers have to the leave request process.

One of the most time-consuming aspects of HR admin is quickly simplified.  Employees are able to easily access their remaining holiday allowance, cross reference their desired dates with the online company-wide calendar and request time off with a few clicks from any device.


Organise Documents

Mounds of paperwork don’t have to come with the HR role. There are increasingly more efficient ways to store important HR documentation, our online system will set out to make the best cloud-based solution for all your HR documents With unlimited storage for everyone, users have access to all their employee and company documents from any location. Documents can be stored with varying privacy settings and those documents that need to be shared with specific employees are easily done so via the company library. Think of all the trees (and printing costs) we can save.
