Since the arrival of the Valentine card in Victorian times, the Valentine’s Day industry has grown to be a multi-million pound, one-day extravaganza.

Although it provides an opportunity to ignite some romance with your partner and to shower them with cards, flowers or more extravagant gifts, it’s not without its downsides.

Here’s our tongue in cheek look at why HR software could be your perfect Valentine this year.

Saves money

Valentine’s Day is EXPENSIVE. Fancy dinners, overpriced bottles of wine, flowers, chocolates, whatever you choose to do, your wallet/purse is likely to be lighter by the end of it. And it doesn’t end there, with birthdays, Christmases, weekends away and holidays, the costs of a relationship add up. HR software on the other hand is an investment that will help you save money, not lose it. By automating many of the day-to-day HR processes, your software will free up time, so you and your employees have more time to focus on the valuable aspects of the job, thus making your company more financially efficient. Doesn’t that sound like the kind of relationship you’d like to be in?

A flexible relationship

Nobody’s perfect. Everyone has their own baggage and pitfalls, and there are often some aspects of your partner which you could probably do without, whether it’s socks being left on the bedroom floor, spending too long in the shower, or leaving the toilet seat up. In contrast, Cezanne HR has a flexible design, meaning you can pick the aspects of the software which are right for you and your company, allowing you to tailor it to your specific business needs. If only relationships were modular too…

It only gets better

The beginning of a relationship, or the honeymoon period as it’s often known, is a blissful time when you’re both perfect in each other’s eyes, and it seems like nothing could ever possibly go wrong. However, as the relationship progresses, and you start to get more and more comfortable around one another, the initial flame starts to burn a little less brightly and the relationship can often plateau. The same cannot be said for Cezanne HR software. You get the latest features as soon as they’re released, and complete guidance on how to get the most out of them, meaning that, unlike many relationships, your HR software experience only gets better over time and will continue to surprise and excite.

Everyone’s included!

If you’re not in a relationship on Valentine’s Day but instead flying the single flag, it can sometimes be a lonely day of self-reflection. However, with HR software, everyone can reap the benefits, whether you’re single or not! Using Cezanne HR helps all employees in your company, not just HR personnel. For instance, everyone can benefit from having greater protection over their personal data, and with the absence management module, you’ll find it much easier to book time off for a holiday.

Sound like a good match? If you want to find out more about how HRIS software can benefit you and your business, we’re happy to play Cupid.
