APIs and Integrations Continue To Revolutionise HR and Payroll Software

Posted by Mathew French on 22 June 2021

Application Programming Interfaces (or APIs) are the glue that holds all the technology solutions we use together. At their most fundamental they are just pieces of code that connect individual systems to each other. From an operational perspective, APIs facilitate the seamless exchange of data across all the different connection points in an interdependent digital ecosystem. That is why APIs (and the integrations already available via a provider's API) really matter when selecting your HR software or Payroll software provider. In this week's HR Blog we explore how important APIs are to ensuring that your business can get the most of all the software your use - especially your HR and Payroll software.

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.

Could Your Biggest Efficiency Gains Lie In Automating Employee Onboarding?

Posted by Mathew French on 24 October 2019

In 2018, HR.com and Iron Mountain conducted a study on The State of HR Automation in Mid-Sized Organisations. Findings reveal that most HR departments are STILL bogged down by manual administrative tasks. A majority of respondents (59%) said the HR professionals in their organisation spend over half their time on manual administrative tasks. This is supported by other HR.com research. In their Advancing HR Function study, half of respondents predicted that 'HR will be transformed into a much more strategic function as administrative duties are automated or outsourced to others.' And yet, despite all the advancements in technology, HR often still finds itself trying to balance two roles: Rule-driven bureaucrat and strategically motivated talent manager. If HR Professionals want to take a leading role in redesigning work, such a redesign needs to amplify efficiencies through automation so as to have the bandwidth to become a more strategic function. In this blog we explore where HR automation can produce the greatest efficiency gains across the employee lifecycle.

Storytelling And Onboarding: The Recipe For A Happy Marriage

Posted by Mathew French on 31 May 2018

If you've heard any of the news about the Financial Services Royal Commission, it is pretty clear that these businesses don't do a very good job of conveying and embedding mission-critical concepts (like ethical behaviour) into their organisation. Communicating the values of your business, and illustrating the culture of your organisation to both potential and actual employees is one thing. Ensuring that those values aren't just paid lip service, but become lived experiences at ALL levels within your organisation, is definitely business-critical in today's marketplace. If the interrogations and admissions of the Royal Commission are anything to go by, it is clear that there is such a wide gap between words and actions in business that something needs to be done. But what? Our last couple of Blog posts have focused on the importance of getting Onboarding right, and the untapped benefits of storytelling for HR. In this Blog, we will explore how you can use the power of story as part of your Onboarding process to set the right tone for the expectations your business has about 'how we do things around here.'
