Why Should You Use a HRIS?
These days, managing HR in a growing business is a constant task. You’re overloaded with work and you never seem to get to the bottom of it all. It’s not unusual to rush from meeting to meeting, extinguishing fire after fire. You’re always checking your e-mail and making countless phone calls.
But there’s a big difference between being productive and just being busy. And if you’re always busy, being busy on admin-based HR tasks with no time for strategic HR thinking, that probably means you need a HRIS.
4 Signs You REALLY Need a HRIS
1. Onboarding is all paperwork
The onboarding of new employees is a crucial time, you want to give your new hires a thorough understanding of your company’s history, culture, and mission. How well they understand the business and fit into the bigger picture and can contribute to the greater success of the company.
But, in too many workplaces, onboarding is all about paperwork. And much of a new employee’s first day, is all about completing one document after another. This includes:
- Signing a letter of engagement;
- Acknowledging your code of conduct;
- Filling out the tax declaration form;
- Completing their superannuation choice form; and,
- Giving us their bank account details.
For new starters, it’s dull, and it’s tedious, and for some, it’s a real let down. But it doesn’t have to be this way when you enable new hires to complete onboarding essentials online, allowing them to fill out and sign all of their onboarding paperwork well in advance of their start date.
