Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, providing an opportunity to show gratitude and appreciation to your loved ones.
With that said, could HR software be your perfect Valentine this year?
HR professionals have been helping their organisations tackle very challenging workforce issues due to COVID-19 and more. Updating and implementing homeworking policies, managing furlough and redundancy procedures, and supporting employee physical and mental wellbeing are just some examples of an endless HR to-do list.
To cope with this intense pressure, many HR teams have used HR software to automate and streamline their processes, so they have the time, insights and resources to adapt to ever-changing needs.
So, here’s our light-hearted look at why HR software should be your Valentine.
1. It saves you money
In an ideal world, money should not be an issue when it comes to showing your appreciation to that special person. But with Valentine’s Day, along with birthdays, Christmases, and anniversaries, you can’t help but feel that big dent in your wallet. Likewise, some may have the misconception that HR software is superfluous spending, especially if you worry about a long contract or unexpected additional costs down the track. But with the right system, it’s actually an investment that will help you save money in the long run.
- By automating many of your day-to-day HR processes, your software will free up your time.
- Important workforce data, all in one place, means you can look out for key trends and insights, like absence patterns in a team or department that might be costing money behind the scenes.
- Modern Cloud HR systems are easier for suppliers to keep up to date and manage, reflected in their cost-efficiency when compared with older systems on the market.
2. It sticks with you through thick and thin
To make any relationship work in the long term, flexibility is key to tackling challenges that come your way. So, make sure you find an HR system that scales. The flexible and modular design of modern Cloud HR software means you can pick the aspects of the software which are right for you and your company.
A modular structure, like Cezanne HR’s, allows you to tailor the system to your specific business needs and focus areas, such as employee onboarding or performance management. The wide range of approval workflows, security roles and notifications, also means you can configure the system to match the way you work. As your business grows and transforms, your HR system will continue to support you along the way.
3. It doesn’t leave you behind
Technology changes so quickly that it can easily become overwhelming trying to keep up with everything. Good HR software ensures you never have to worry about being left behind. You get the latest features as soon as they’re released, with guidance on how to make the most of them. So, your HR software experience only gets better over time and will continue to surprise and excite.
And, if you feel like something’s missing, great customer support and an active user community mean that you can easily reach out should you need further assistance in using the system or if you would like to suggest new features that will help make it work better for you.
4. It can make everyone happy
Valentine’s Day can feel exclusionary if you’re flying the single flag, but that’s not the case when using HR software. Your HR team, line managers and employees alike can all reap the benefits an HR system provides. Secure self-service access, a simple absence request process, and having key information in one place are just a few features that can make HR admin and processes easier and faster for everyone.
