Businesses are tightening their belts and looking for ways to cut costs and get more work accomplished with fewer resources. That’s why more companies today are challenging their human resource (HR) departments to make more strategic contributions to the organization.
While HR is traditionally viewed as a cost center saddled with time-consuming and paper-intensive administrative tasks, it’s a necessary burden in order to comply with governmental regulations that require specialized reporting.
Given these facts, how can you streamline your HR processes to minimize that burden and transform HR into a model of efficiency with meaningful impact on the bottom line?
The answer to this may lay in automated HR software. Here’s why ...
Technology Maximizes Limited Resources
Most small and midsized businesses have limited staff to manage the many aspects of human resources. In fact, HR staff typically spends far more time performing routine administrative tasks than strategic objectives. But the simple fact is once those routine administrative tasks are automated, it has a profoundly positive impact on both the HR department and company overall. And that’s where Sage HRMS comes in.
Sounds Interesting, But What Does It Do?
First things first. The term "HRMS" stands for Human Resource Management System. In the same way that ERP software automates your accounting and operations, Sage HRMS automates all aspects of managing your workforce including Employee Benefits, Time and Attendance, Training, Recruitment, Compensation Management, Compliance, and more. You get hundreds of standard reports, customizable templates, automated workflow, and a full range of features that will reduce the cost of compliance, eliminate redundant data entry and paperwork, automate repetitive processes, and have your HR Department running like a well-oiled machine.
Consolidate And Digitize
Many companies rely on a combination of paper, spreadsheets, and file cabinets to manage employee information which means that hiring data, payroll records, and benefit plan elections are probably stored in multiple places. Each employee change needs to be replicated across a variety of files … a record-keeping nightmare.
But with Sage HRMS, all of your employee data is digitized and consolidated into a single database. This results in fewer errors and potential fines, elimination of duplicate data entry, and more timely reports and analysis.
The gains in efficiency resulting from this transformation is what will allow your HR department to be freed from its administrative burden and move towards becoming a strategic contributor to the organization.
