Engaging modern workforces with flexible HR solutions
Managing and organizing a small group of people is a difficult task as is, but doing the same for an entire workforce is a whole other feat. This is why the Human Resources (HR) department is a crucial cornerstone of any business; it both makes sure the right hires are made so operations can constantly run like clockwork and looks after employee needs.
HR professionals are responsible for a variety of things – talent searching, recruiting, training, employee welfare, and so on. The job of a HR department requires meticulousness and a talent for organization – but even the most organized HR professional still needs a helping hand sometimes.
This is where HR technology and software is a gift for businesses, especially those dealing with rapid expansion or shifts within the workforce.
Dr. Steve Hunt, Director of Business Transformation at SuccessFactors, wrote in talent management and HR blog TLNT that: “As HR technology develops we can look forward to a time when ineffectual control-based HR processes will be abandoned or radically redesigned.
“The advent of mobile and social performance management technology is allowing companies to shift away from annual performance reviews to methods that emphasize ongoing, continuous performance coaching,” he added.
To help HR professionals find an agile, modern technology that makes multiple responsibilities a breeze, we’ve rounded up four HR software providers we think will ace the job.
