There is something about surveys. The results grab the headlines, but not enough attention is given to the statistical base. For example, SHRM reports a survey that concludes 77% of Human Resource departments have gone paperless. However, this is based on the input from only 150 HR practitioners, all of whom were attending the 2015 SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) conference and exposition. These results may be indicative, but you need to examine such results in terms of your own business context.
Your Human Resources information system can reduce your efforts and increase your Employee Handbook’s meaningful value.

Ascentis Self-Service gives your company a centralized database of benefits information which is a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use resource for employees needing answers.

Many documents are involved in the hiring process, from resumes and applications to legally required forms such as W-4s and I-9s. These documents must be processed into systems or spreadsheets, and then shared with other departments such as payroll.
HR Compliance Risk: Rising Costs, Litigation Risk, and Limited Resources – It’s enough to keep you up at night.
Even the most compliance conscientious employer who meets the often-changing interpretations of specific regulations may encounter unexpected litigation and find their efforts fruitless. The best defense against an alleged violation is a watertight reporting system and automatic documentation of everything related to a specific case.
Determining whether employees qualify as full-time (FTE) for purposes of the ACA is complex, at best. While the actual requirement to provide insurance to full time employees (or pay specified penalties) doesn’t take effect for most employers until 2014, the record-keeping period, both for determining large employer status and for determining coverage eligibility by employee, runs throughout 2013.
