How would you feel about freeing up 30% of your team’s time?

It’s a no-brainer. Of course, you’d jump at it.

Automating processes and administrative tasks means you reclaim that precious all-important time you need.

It’s how progressive fast-growth People Companies are getting ahead. They’re automating transactional processes, freeing up lost time on admin and leaving their teams free to truly focus on what matters: their people and building great workforce experiences for them.

Why automate?

Our own research has shown that 80% of fast-growth companies have embraced HR automation, versus 53% in lower growth businesses.

McKinsey estimates that 60% of all occupations have 30% of activities that could be automated, and that automation can make workforces 31% more productive.

Yet, that’s just the efficiency gain. The truly game-changing potential is in the time you free up when you automate.

What would you do with it to make a real impact on business performance and success?

Here are five ways to use automation to transform HR in your organisation, enabling you to become a more people-focussed function.

 

1. Great onboarding experiences

Here are five ways to use automation to transform HR in your organisation, enabling you to become a more people-focussed function.

Automation means you can deliver relevant, timely and personalised information so your new hires can hit the ground running, already feeling a part of the team and business.

Streamline the recruitment process with forms, checklists and self-service admin which makes it easy for candidates and recruits to get on board and gives you the information needed to enrol, induct and equip them.

Keep checking in to get their feedback both informally and formally, using pulse surveys. Make changes as necessary based on feedback to create a great onboarding process.

2. An engaged, motivated workforce

You get the best work from your people when they feel motivated and valued. Automation means you can tailor and target communications and gather meaningful feedback in ways that suit your workforce.

Create seamless processes for peer feedback and recognition so outperformance is always recorded and rewarded.

3. Flexible performance management

The annual review process is inflexible, slow and time-consuming for modern, fast moving businesses. Continuous performance conversations keep employees engaged and feeling valued, all whilst helping to sustain performance and talent development throughout the year.

Automation means you can prompt, capture and collate feedback and performance information from peers and line or task managers continuously.

See accurate, timely and meaningful performance information in management dashboards and use it to identify key talent to nurture as well as performance and development opportunities to address.

4. Empower employees through self-service

In life, we’re used to self-service everywhere – from flight check-ins to supermarket scanning. Employees expect the same in the modern workplace.

Intuitive, automated systems cut out the frustration of traditional HR admin, removing unnecessary requests and low value administrative work, freeing up HR teams and increasing their productivity.

Employees can view and update personal and pay information and leave requests, find information, policies and contact details easily, gain approval for routine requests instantly, and keep better connected to the business through timely employee communications.

They get convenient, anytime access and responses.

5. Provide more actionable insights

Automation marshals your data like never before, giving you accurate and accessible people information and actionable insights that influence business decision-making.

Know where your top talent are, and spot those at flight risk. Explore interactive data dashboards that show exceptions and trends clearly, with meaningful data visualisation tools.

Feed relevant and trusted HR information to the board and managers for company agility and success.

HR transformation depends on automation

In a tougher, more complex, faster-changing, always-on marketplace, you can’t risk delays and inaccuracies in routine processing.

That 30% extra time you free up from admin to spend on a more strategic people-focussed approach could just be the critical differentiator for your organisation this year.
