Cloud HR software really does go a long way in helping to run a business smoothly. For many years, some firms have been storing up expense receipts in a folder, using a paper clip to keep all the bits together! Other companies use a diary to note down holiday requests and the book can only be seen by the administration or HR manager.
If an employee wishes to book annual leave, they would have no foreknowledge of whether the date they wish to book off, is OK to be absent on. At times, they are told to “find another date”, as there are too many staff members off during that period. Only then do they choose another period to find a similar story and a request denied disapproval.
It can be frustrating for employees and HR alike. Cloud HR software solves this issue regardless of where and when an employee looks to book off annual leave. As the software is on the Cloud, it can be accessed from anywhere that has a data or Wi-Fi connection.
Spreadsheets are a common part of the HR setup. Access to spreadsheets is usually limited to certain users. Some can read-only, and others (with more authority) can write and update the sheet. However, this can cause issues and cell or column fragmentation. When this happens, the dwindling IT department is called on to sort out the mess.
The solution to all these common problems is a cloud software system, known as WORKPLACE. It is powerful, simple to use, and works around the clock. WORKPLACE is fully mobile and can run on smartphones, tablets, and desktops alike.
It is a system that will get everything the HR department needs in one place. Holidays, sickness, expense receipts, leave requests, staff allocation, and monthly auditing assessments of staff members or employees.
Each manager or department head will have a dashboard. Within the template, there will be:
- Announcements: what is crucial right now and happening in the business
- Holidays: requests, approvals, and who is off this week
- Team Management: featuring expense claims, grievance matters, disciplinary measures, personal development plans, task lists, and targets
Cloud HR software really can organize a company and help to run the business more efficiently. It can help with time management, keeping costs down, improving staff morale, increasing productivity, and making a business more dynamic.
