HR Management Systems: More Important and Affordable Than Ever
Human resources management systems (HRMS) have become a necessity.
HRMS manage all employee-related data and operations, including payroll, HR data, talent management and attendance. An employee’s entire employment cycle can be recorded, from job application, to performance appraisals, training, compensation, work accidents and career management.
Depending on your organization’s size, the administrative burden of managing human resources can be significant. Setting up a structured and efficient HR management system significantly increases efficiency.
THE DAYS OF MANUAL MANAGEMENT ARE OVER
Since the economic downturn of 2008, organizations haven’t invested significantly in HRMS. Many lag behind—a situation made more acute in Quebec due to the current labour shortage.
Companies that manage their HR manually rely on time-consuming, error-laden Excel files to process data. As a result, important data often can’t be correlated and analyzed.
HRMS has become essential for businesses to stay competitive and efficient, as well as to maximize performance and profits.
DRASTICALLY REDUCE YOUR ACQUISITION AND MAINTENANCE COSTS
HRMS now uses the SAAS (software as a service) approach. All solutions are billed monthly based on the number of services used. This has resulted in significantly reduced initial acquisition and maintenance costs compared to ten years ago.
Due to the cost savings and increased efficiencies, managers are much more willing to give HRMS projects the green light.
THERE ARE NO BAD SYSTEMS, ONLY BAD CHOICES
A solution is valid and helpful only when it is suitable.
Some organizations only require small improvements to existing systems, not complete or partial overhauls. The key is having a clear picture of your company’s current processes and technology infrastructure before choosing.
When it comes to choosing an HRMS, the secret lies in performing an in-depth assessment of core functional requirements.
