28 Nov 4 Ways Your HRIS Can Help Transform the Employee Experience
Over the past year, I’ve focused on sharing actionable insights for those who want to leverage HRIS technology to truly transform their organization in 2019. I covered how to assess your existing platform(s) to determine if you’re truly experiencing the anticipated return on investment; how to select, implement, and realize the ROI of a new HRIS; and finally, the benefits of enabling an HRIS to make the performance management process more efficient and effective.
There is no doubt that an HRIS requires an investment of time and money, but its post-implementation benefits are extensive and ongoing in both qualitative and quantitative ways. Many of these benefits are related to the wealth of data that an HRIS platform can store and track. Your organization can leverage these large data sets to transform not only the way you do business but also the overall employee experience. With the right configuration, you can, in fact, obtain a comprehensive, 360-degree view of each of your employees relative to their talents, their goals, their interests, and so much more, using that data to truly maximize the employee experience in the following ways.
1. Provide Increased Control
An optimized HRIS gives power to employees that ultimately makes their lives easier when it comes to managing their own data. Rather than going through HR to view benefits-related information, they can view and make adjustments themselves, giving them more control over their own administrative activities. The streamlined platform also reduces errors in payroll and benefits, which improves overall job satisfaction.
2. Enable Growth
With insight into the strengths and weaknesses of your team, you can identify where further training is required, cultivating their talents, enabling growth, and helping to establish their career paths within your organization. With increased transparency, your employees can also review their own performance data to improve goalsetting and better understand their role within the organization.
3. Improve Staffing
With the right predictive tools in place, you can more accurately forecast changes in demand, preventing over- and under-staffing. This helps to prevent burnout and demonstrates that you value your employees and the contributions that they make.
4. Better Engage Employees
If you leverage your HRIS to capture employee feedback, you can use that data to more effectively support your workforce and address their needs. Further, by gathering information related to your employees’ preferences, work habits, and more, you’ll better understand who they are, what motivates them, and how you can enable their success.
In a competitive talent and labor market, focusing on the employee experience can set your company apart and enable you to both retain existing employees and attract top talent to join your team. A well-designed HRIS can also have a significant impact on the productivity, motivation, and satisfaction of your workforce, which will in turn contribute to increased client satisfaction and higher profits. If you’re ready to position your HRIS as an enabler to transform your employee experience, now is always the right time. Contact me at [email protected] or 484.383.0606 to learn more.
