The HR Spine: Flexibility & Efficiency Managing Employee Information

Posted by Mathew French on 24 November 2020

A healthy spine is flexible, keeps the body in alignment and transmits messages accurately and efficiently from the brain to the rest of the body. In the same manner, the key to flexibility, efficiency and effective management of employee information in HR, is to allow for a smooth flow of data between all the convergent data points that HR management generates. Given the amount of disruption to the way we work in 2020 - what are the convergent data points that HR needs to optimise to ensure that there are no bottlenecks in the employee lifecycle going forward? Let's take a look.

5 HR Software Configuration Tools Every HR Professional Needs

Posted by Mathew French on 17 November 2020

If you missed our Blog about HR software configurability, you might not be up to speed about the importance of configuration tools. It's a fallacy that the 'out-of-the-box' functionality of all Cloud HR software will meet the needs of every organisation. That's why you need to make sure that your HR software has powerful configuration options that enable you to adapt it to your unique HR processes. Essentially, you need to be able to bend your HR software to your will because we all know that one size does not fit all HR automation needs. If you haven't yet started your digital transformation and you're in the market for a solution that works for your business, here are five configuration tools your HR software needs to follow HR best practice in your organisation.

Managing Performance in the New World of Work

Posted by Mathew French on 10 November 2020

2020 is the year in which the way we work was completely transformed. According to Brandon Hall Group research, over 80% of organisations will use flexible scheduling and remote work going forward based on the impact of changes to the way we worked throughout this year. To make this transition productive for both employees and employers, Leaders and Managers must encourage (and ultimately cultivate) high performance, while at the same time fostering their employees’ well-being and guarding against burnout and talent attrition. In this week's HR Blog we explore the importance of managing performance in the new world of work.

HR Dashboards: Good User Experience Is The Key To Productivity

Posted by Mathew French on 22 October 2020

Dashboards can improve the overall experience for users of your HR software - that is, your employees. But did you know they can also provide significant productivity benefits that extend well beyond what you might be aware of (or think is possible)? But how do you access the right data, at the right time, and deliver that data to your employees in the right way so as to have a positive impact on user experience and productivity?. Ultimately, it all comes down to configuration. Many HR systems lack the configuration tools which make it possible for users to configure the software to meet the unique needs of the organisation. That applies just as much to workflows as it does to dashboards. The more configurable your HR software and your HR dashboards are, the more productive your employees will be. Let's take a look at the impact UX can have on ROI through the lens of what HR dashboards make possible.

How To Remove Roadblocks From The Employee Lifecycle

Posted by Mathew French on 29 September 2020

One of our most popular blog posts last year was about automating employee lifecycle management. In another recent blog, we also shared how things like a regularly updated HR systems and IT ecosystem integration strategy, in addition to a culture of change can improve business outcomes by an average of 15%. We've explored these issues separately in the past, but it's what's possible by bringing them all together that holds the key to unlocking roadblocks in the employee lifecycle. In this week's HR Blog we explore how #HRtech can help you remove roadblocks, improve the employee experience and generate better business outcomes.

Agile HR: What Is It And Why Do You Need To Know About It?

Posted by Mathew French on 22 September 2020

If the term (and framework of) Agile isn't on your radar yet, it should be. 'Agile' enables organisations to master continuous change, which makes it perfect for the times we live in. It is essentially THE change management process we all need right about now. It enables organisations to flourish by building resilience in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Agile is also something that can be applied in the context of HR. Agile HR is a fascinating topic but it can be a challenge to change an entire organisational perspective on 'how we do things around here.' So, in this week's HR Blog, we examine what Agile HR is and how it can be applied in your business, and how important it is to the future of work.
