HR Automation – What’s Next for HR Management?

11 December 2013 5 MIN READ

Human Resources department in organizations of any size is responsible for various tasks that ensures in smooth running of the company. HR manages hiring employees, monitoring their work, managing the payroll, sketching out various company policies, attendance and absenteeism management, managing legal issues to name just a few. It goes without saying that a lot rests on the HR department. With competition rising in the market and the work-load increasing day by day, automation of HR is not just a good option but it has become nothing less than a necessity. Automation acts like oil in the huge machinery that is HR, making sure that all the parts run smoothly.

These are some of the ways that automation in HR can add value to the organization:

  • Saves time – HR is responsible for so many functions that the traditional methods would invariably involve lots of paperwork and files. Automating the processes involved in each would reduce the paperwork involved, thus reducing the time to finish the tasks.  As they say, time is money. Saving time leads to saving money which in turn helps in making more money. Isn’t that the whole point of starting a company!
  • Provides standardized processes –There might be several ways to finish one task and when each one adopts their own method, it can lead to chaos and confusion. Automation offers standardized processes to each task, thus simplifying the work. This leads to improving efficiency. Eventually, having a simplified, uniform and an efficient work design is what every organization aims at.
  • Increase productivity and profit –When all the tedious tasks can be done efficiently with the help of automation, the work-force can be freed to do other important tasks like designing various company strategies and other important tasks. This cumulates to increased productivity and profits. No argument on how these two are important.
  • Improves accuracy – No matter how careful one is, there is always a small margin of errors that can be caused. Introducing software to do the same reduces that margin and improves accuracy. Not only this reduces errors and glitches, but it helps in reducing stress in the employees. At the end of the day, a stress-free employee contributes more.
  • Security –This has to be one of the most important features that automation can bring to the table. There is always a possibility of loss, theft or damage of important documents and files due to natural or man-made disasters. Having a back-up of the various files is of utmost importance these days. Afterall, security is something that cannot be compromised on any cost.

We should not compare how a man and a machine/software can do any task better than the other. But the amalgamation of the two brings unparalleled results. If your HR department needs an upgrade, you now know what to do. Automation in HR can bring more value to your organization that you ever imagined. Don’t be too late in joining the bandwagon!
