Picture the scene: you’ve expanded your business tenfold in less than a year and you now employ dozens of people, with more roles to be filled in the coming months. As you create files and fill them with onboarding paperwork for the 15th time today, it dawns on you that this would all be a lot easier to manage if your employee data was stored and managed online in a centralised database.

That, my friends, is what an HR information system does. They help you automate your processes and bring all your employee data into one centralised online system. Gone are the days of an assortment of documents, forms, spreadsheets and more pilling on your desks. You can now work faster and smarter by transferring all your employee data onto one simple system.

Plus, you get to have a nice and clean desk; what more could you want? Well, here’s 4 more reasons why you need an HR system:

Become more productive

Let’s face it, a lot of the time we perform the same mundane tasks over and over again with little to no variation. HR systems automate a lot of these tasks, such as attendance tracking and annual leave requests, giving you more time to focus on what matters.

Improved reporting

With a database covering every key aspect of your employee data, HR systems produce detailed employee reporting for things such as absences, holidays, missing documents, etc. and shows this in an easy-to-read online format. You can bin the printer now, you won’t need it anymore!

Make better, more informed decisions

The whole point of an HR system is to improve the way you work and that includes helping you make the right decisions with all the details in front of you, giving you a single source of truth so you have the confidence in the decisions you make.

Build up employee satisfaction

Employees appreciate less hassle where possible, so if they’re able to access their documents, make annual leave requests and see their company benefits, then you’ll make them happy. And as we know, happy people are more productive. It’s a no-brainer really!

More and more people are turning to HR systems every day and with the benefits they bring, you can see why. Whether you’re struggling with HR paperwork, taking ages to compile reports or not following processes as well as you’d like, an HR system will go a long way to helping you manage your workload more efficiently.
