Why Automate Human Resources?
HR professionals are seeking ways to do more with less. Strategically investing in technology is one way to achieve this goal. Manual HR processes increase the chances for data errors, employee dissatisfaction and non-compliance. This takes away from the more strategic goals of talent recruitment and employee engagement. Our GCStreamline for Human Resources solutions handle many of the administrative tasks that, though critical, slow down productivity when performed manually. Such tasks include filing documents, creating new folders and routing documents between employees. These solutions also eliminate the need for paper-specific tasks like making photocopies and gathering handwritten signatures.
Automation can greatly reduce the time it takes for HR personnel to perform routine tasks. By sending instant reminder emails for benefits enrollment, automatically generating new folders for recently hired employees, or even notifying health and safety monitors when an employee moves to a new floor, automation technology allows HR professionals to contribute their time to more valuable duties.
Five indications that your need for HR automation has become critical:
1. HR processes are underperforming

3. Audits have become a nightmare
4. Operational costs have become unsustainable
