Benefits of Automating HR Processes
People are the most important asset any company has. Managing people efficiently is critical in ensuring productivity, profitability and customer satisfaction are maximised. Process automation enables efficient people management and increases employee satisfaction, lower levels of attrition, the ability to attract new talent and ensures all the benefits that self service bring by empowering your employees.
A BPM automation platform will enable data insights on teams, individuals or a workforce as a whole. From absence management to annual appraisals and from on boarding to employee benefits, process automation can cover the full employee life-cycle. The ability to see real time information this way enables quick and better informed decision making whether it is evaluating an employee for their annual appraisal or a strategic decision regarding the entire workforce. With all critical employee data in one place, tailored dashboards can be created and displayed to the user instantly. KPIs can be set up and measured quickly and effectively. In the modern word, visibility of data is key.
Timers and SLAs in automated workflow tasks can identify and eliminate bottlenecks in your processes. Speeding up your applicant tracking system or your on boarding process will help bring through the right talent faster and enable existing employees to focus more on higher value, revenue generating tasks.
Many organisations are getting left behind in the digital world and have to fight to retain competitiveness and market share. Automating HR processes is a big step towards staying ahead of the competition with wide ranging benefits including:
- streamlining of processes
- increased efficiency
- improved productivity
- increased employee satisfaction
- better understanding of workforce
- ability to instantly match skills with jobs / projects
- improved accuracy and consistency
- instant, real time reporting and analytics
- better decision making
- improved security and safety
- auditabilty and compliance (GDPR etc)
- competitive advantage
With cutting edge BPM platforms and low code / no code technology, HR solutions can be developed and deployed in days and weeks, not months and years. This allows HR leaders to show rapid payback and ROI on their automation projects, making for a very compelling business case.
Modern cloud or on premise HR or ERP solutions provide paperless and automated solutions. However, especially for large companies, legacy systems can prevent efforts in this area as they can be problematic to integrate with. Where legacy systems prevent full digitization, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) bots will assume repetitive human jobs and digitize processes. RPA bots can be trained like employees and can perform repetitive actions with ease while recording each and every action they complete.
