HR Software Considerations

Before you start looking for an HR Software Solution, you need to identify what you need from the software. Industry watchers break down the field of HR software into three main categories:

• Core HR
• Workforce Management
• Strategic HR


Streamline HR administrative tasks

If you’re an SME with no HR software, or you are using a few unconnected solutions that you want to unite, you should consider an integrated HR suite. This will automate your more simple HR functions with a single system.


Maximise efficiency when recruiting and hiring Staff

If you need to scale your workforce quickly, a prime recruiting and applicant tracking solution might be your best option. Many of these solutions automatically post vacancies to job boards and social media outlets, as well as simplifying candidate tracking and on-boarding of new employees. With configurable databases of candidates and robust reporting capabilities, you can make the most of your current candidate pool, whilst continuing to expand your talent base.


Manage a large pool of employees working in shifts

Coordinating a workforce with multiple shifts to assign and time-off requests to approve can be incredibly complex and laborious. There are numerous tools available which streamline this task and greatly increase efficiency. For example, many solutions either feature a built-in payroll system to help when running massive payrolls, or integrate effectively with your current payroll software to ensure all hours worked by employees are accounted for.


Develop your workforce

You want to ensure that your best employees are recognised and rewarded so they stay with your company and continue to do great work. Staff retention has the ability to outwardly boost the reputation of your business whilst inwardly cutting costs and helping your bottom line. The broad category of talent management solutions help you achieve this, with everything from performance appraisal solutions, to systems for gathering peer feedback, to employee training tools. These solutions also contribute towards higher morale and greater employee productivity.
