HR Software Case Study: Cloud HR Software Success Story

Posted by Mathew French on 9 May 2017

Business is changing, and your HR and recruitment should be at the forefront of this change. If your business is still reliant on paper-based systems, and many man-hours of administration, then you have a lot of options for improvement. But despite what your gut might tell you, change can be both quick and painless. Take Premier Technologies for example. An Australian owned and operated Cloud IT Contact Centre Provider, they would be classed as a medium sized business with 60 full-time employees. Premier Technologies wanted their HR, Processes and Systems updated, and Subscribe-HR's People Management Cloud Software was used to do this. From Talent sourcing to Employee Onboarding and Payroll integration.

Which HR Trends Matter To Your Business In 2017?

Posted by Mathew French on 19 January 2017

At this time of year, there are a lot of articles floating around which profess to know the top trends for HR during the coming year. Sometimes these articles are valid (and backed up by a significant amount of data), and sometimes there is a lot of crystal ball gazing going on. Ultimately, it is becoming more and more difficult to accurately predict future HR trends, however, there are a few annual reports that warrant investigation. One of those reports is Deloitte's annual Human Capital Trends report. The 2016 offering outlines the opinions and perspectives of 7,000 HR and business leaders. That's a significant amount of data gathered from a global cohort, so it is worthwhile taking a look at the picture those 7,000 respondents painted about the likely short and long-term future of business from the HR perspective.

Refocus: From Engagement To Culture Management

Posted by Mathew French on 28 April 2016

Word on the street is that HR needs to adjust its focus from engagement to the more appropriate 'culture management' if business wants to really create workplaces that employees want to be a part of, and will be willing to make a long term commitment to. A recent article on HR Daily indicates that this shift will require HR to focus on 'Employees' relationships and emotions, their sense of meaning and purpose, Leadership capabilities and behaviours, and how these factors align with organisational goals.' The time has also come for organisations to pair this culture management focus with filling the gaps in organisational culture and for the purpose of creating more well rounded, human workplaces.

Next Generation HR and Business Modelling Underpinned by HRIS Software

Posted by Mathew French on 20 April 2016

Managing a business is challenging. Cost control, Human Resources, Marketing, Risk Management - there are many balls in the air. With so much focus now on cost management, it’s no wonder that there is so much pressure on justification of spend. Whether it be marketing spend or office leasing, smart business people are all looking at ways to maximise value and return-on-investment. The business model is evolving into one that can harness the power of agile services. Whether this be serviced office space or a freelance / contract workforce, management teams are looking for way to reduce fixed costs and two of the largest areas of fixed costs are wages and office space. Both of which are based on employee numbers.

Why Managing Performance Well is Good For Employee Wellbeing

Posted by Mathew French on 8 March 2016

At first glance, you might not think that how you manage performance, or your performance appraisal process have anything to do with employee wellness. Yet enabling your employees to achieve a reasonable level of work-life balance as well as giving them the skills and tools needed to succeed at work, is an essential ingredient in creating great a workplace culture in which your employees thrive. Often, work-life balance issues have their roots in the level of expectations that management and leadership set for employees, and the subsequent way that employee performance in relation to those expectations is then managed.

HR Metrics: What To Measure And Why

Posted by Mathew French on 5 May 2015

It's easy for HR to dismiss the benefits of measuring the metrics within your organisation. After all, numbers are often considered to be the responsibility of the Finance Department. However, case studies prove time and again that if you want to know what your people think, what matters to them, how you're tracking against the important things and generally how you're performing as an organisation, it is imperative for you to decide on some metrics and then measure them religiously and regularly.
