The human race has evolved – why shouldn’t HR?
If you are one of the numerous companies who continue to use the same HR system seemingly older than national treasure Sir Ian McKellen, do not worry. You are not alone. There are over 475,000 HR professionals in the UK*, many of whom continue to use their tried and trusted system of conducting their HR business. After all, why fix something that isn’t broken?
The difference between HR in the 90s versus HR now, is like listening to music on a cassette player, in comparison to streaming Ed Sheeran’s ‘Beautiful People’ whilst being plugged into your AirPods.
Sure, the mix-tape was just about fit for purpose back then, and even now, it may summon fuzzy feelings of nostalgia, because it is familiar. But the process of listening, and the quality of music in comparison to then and now, is worlds apart.
There is one key development which has occurred over the passage of time, which should not be underestimated, and that is the power of technology.
By making one simple change, you can potentially save precious time which can then be devoted to other areas of the business where your time is better used to more effect.
This one simple change is infoRouter.
This clever piece of software – initially developed for the US Aerospace industry – might already be on your radar, or it may be the first you have heard of it.
Before appreciating how infoRouter can help you, it is important to firstly understand the HR function which covers a sweeping set of objectives.
Strategic planning and management of the workforce is one of the key priorities of HR. This process focusses on recruitment, selection and management of employees. Paperwork generated covers holidays, sick pay, annual appraisals, pensions, accidental cover and employability references. As any HR professional knows, this list is not exhaustive, and the very business of HR depends upon reliability, accountability and confidentiality.
“Take back control” should not be reserved as solely a catchy Brexit slogan; it should be applied to businesses as well. Lengthy HR processes that might be tedious to undertake – performance reviews or timesheet generation are just two to mention – could be automated, saving you time and money for you to really be in control and drive your business forward.
