Why Automate Your HR Processes?
Automating workforce management using integrated HR and payroll technology is imperative for companies that want to control costs by increasing efficiency, reducing the risk associated with errors, and securing their place in a competitive talent market.
Reducing paper-based processes is another factor that drives the need for automation. More companies are moving toward paperless workflow as a way to support “green” business practices. While helping the environment, these companies also help themselves: sharing information electronically saves time – and money.
According to a study conducted by Boston, MA-based Aberdeen Group, the top pressures that drive HR and payroll technology initiatives are the need to adapt to market changes, better management of complex employee relationships, rising costs associated with workforce management and employee retention amid a shrinking labor pool.
The study indicates that the actions required to meet these pressures include:
- Increasing the efficiency of HR and payroll management by adding strategic functionality to core processes
- Improving data accuracy and security
- Integrating business systems to consolidate functions
- Educating HR and payroll staff, and the end-users of self-service systems, on how to optimally utilize the programs that are put in place
Yet, while the need to automate workforce management isn’t argued, the challenges related to evaluating and selecting a solution often keep companies from breaking free of the burden created by their current processes and moving toward full automation utilizing an integrated system to manage HR and payroll.
