People & HR

Focus on the people and not the process work using automation to do more with less and enhance the employee experience.

HR automation is technology that allows People & HR teams to digitise, streamline, automate and measure their work, across hiring, communications, retention, development and performance management.

Why is People & HR Automation Important?

People and HR teams currently manage and conduct their work using inefficient and manual processes such as paper forms and excel spreadsheets to run and manage employee relations. As a result, HR teams are spending more time on administrative tasks that are low value and unmotivating, as opposed to valuable people-centric work. Many software providers can address some of these issues such as deploying digital forms, but they often cannot provide the level of sophistication required to manage the complex workflow-based processes that are managed by human resources departments. Moreover, the inability to capture key data from processes that currently sit in ‘offline’ media such as emails and spreadsheets make it difficult for HR teams to be on the front foot when it comes to process improvement.

Use Cases for People & HR Automation

People & HR automation empowers HR teams to create self-serve and self-help tools for employees and tools that empower the HR team themselves to process work more efficiently.

Benefits of People & HR Automation

Whilst other HR technology may help HR teams organise and manage their work, HR automation uniquely shifts the type of work of People & HR departments to enable them to truly do more with less, whilst also creating visible and direct improvements to the delivery of employee services to their organisation.

Here are just some of the benefits of People & HR automation:

  • Give time back to People & HR teams – refocus the HR team on high impact, people-centric tasks by creating automation and self-service journeys for the low complexity tasks.
  • Enhance employee experience – remove bottlenecks and improve turnaround time to the business by improving accessibility to services through self-service whilst shortening the queue for high importance HR requests.
  • Higher compliance – improve accuracy and adoption of proper practices and processes.
  • Standardisation – create operational excellence and consistency of service delivery.
  • Data capture – gain access and report on data which typically isn’t captured due to manual and ‘offline’ methods of working, particularly in email and phone calls.
