More and more organizations are adopting human resources software so that they can simplify operations for their HR teams while managing their employees seamlessly, irrespective of where they work. If your organization is looking to invest in this kind of software and wondering what to look for, here are six features all human resources software should include:
Onboarding: This particular module should help your organization complete onboarding online with features like a document repository, e-signature, and onboarding checklists.
Time and attendance: These features should help your employees mark their attendance online, record the time they spend doing different projects, and enable them to apply for leave.
Performance management: These capabilities in the system should help your organization keep track of employee goals, KRAs, skills, and competencies. Performance admins should be able to run appraisal cycles and exchange feedback with employees.
Payroll integration: This integration should work closely with time and attendance features so that payroll inputs are readily available within the system. The payroll system should automate end-to-end payroll processing.
Employee self-service portal: This portal should enable your employees to complete their everyday HR operations, like applying for leave, marking attendance, logging time, updating their data, and managing approvals.
Real-time reporting: These capabilities should help you stay on top of the "whys" at your organization. They should help you understand why employees are staying, why some are leaving, the reasons behind absences, how projects are progressing, etc.
