Training, Selection, Hiring, and Payroll with your HR System
If you are sitting at your computer, how much lung capacity are you using?
Not much, right? You can sit and breathe without effort. What about running a
sprint? You are using your full potential; you are expanding your lung capacity,
allowing you to do even more. What does this have to do with human resource
management? When you have an HR system, you may not be using it to its full
capacity. It may be performing at the level your lungs are when you’re just
sitting. When you invest in HR management technology, you need to it be working
at sprint-level to help you manage employee hiring, training, information,
benefits, and more. It’s time to get your HR software up and running.
What can your management software do? This, at first, seems like a basic and somewhat unnecessary question. It helps you manage your human resources. But how? What does it allow you to do to facilitate HR, streamline processes, and ideally, save your business time and money? What features does it have that allow you to do this? Then the question doesn’t seem so unnecessary. The first step in using your software effectively is to know what it does. Candidate selection, hiring, training, payroll, benefits? Some businesses boast of having HRIS not offer a comprehensive suite of features for their managers or their employees. You can streamline work processes, such as training and payroll; you just have to know that you can.
A good management system does not do the job of a human resources department; it won’t eliminate the need for skilled professionals. What it will do, however, is help these professionals do their job in a more streamlined, competent, and cost-efficient manner. While it’s true that you won’t need someone stationed at the filing cabinet, it is equally true that you can utilize that same person for more proactive and necessary tasks. How can it help for the areas of training, selection, hiring, and payroll?
You can coordinate trainings in terms of scheduling instructors, facilities, equipment, and materials. Costs can be automatically updated, and you can track who needs to go, any prerequisites they need, and other important information. In employee self-service programs, employees can log in and access trainings appropriate to their position, online final exams, and more.
Selection and Hiring
Many businesses no longer maintain paper records of applicants, and they no longer slog through endless paper resumes. The selection process can be made easier by HR technology as you track education, skills, work experience, and other important factors. If an applicant is hired, you can easily transfer his file to your personnel management system.
You can export relevant payroll information to a compatible payroll system to ensure prompt payment. A comprehensive system will also allow you to track and manage benefits, including enrollment, premium rates, and more. Finding the right HR system is crucial; the applications extend to far more than keeping track of job positions or openings. They can extend to every aspect of your business, allowing for better utilization of your human resources.
