An organisation mainly hires a candidate keeping in mind a predefined set of tasks to be finished as per deadlines. Once they are hired, it is in the best interest of the companies to make sure the employees are actively engaged and not just filling up a vacant seat. Engaged employees perform better each day and feel a connection with the company they work for.
If you are willing to provide a better experience to the employees while they are still at your organisation, one thing that can definitely help is an HRMS software. The Employee Self Service (ESS) module in an HRMS is an essential tool to elevate how employees interact with the management, how employees get access to useful information, or how employees connect with the HR department.
Let us dive into how HRMS is redefining employee experience:
Data At the Fingertips
In the HRMS dashboard, an employee’s basic profile details like family, education, employment history, shift details, statutory details, and designation are filled and updated as and when required. An employee can easily check the dashboard to fetch details rather than enquiring with the HR.
Employees planning for long leaves are often worried about their leaves being rejected. Gone are the days when we used email formats for leave application with the chances of getting missed by the managers most often. With HRMS, a simple leave request applied from the leave-dashboard is all it takes for an employee to apply for leave. Even managers can approve/reject with just a few clicks. An HRMS also includes a to-do list to set tasks of the day, important dates, or simply set a reminder for project milestones. The HR department can reach out to employees through the system for feedback or get any kind of quick action from them.
In any working environment, effective communication is the key to a smooth flow of processes. An HRMS is something which connects employees internally through a network, making it easier for them to deal with routine follow-ups and group discussions from the comfort of their desk. An interconnected communication channel between different departments is essential to take care of assigning tasks, reporting and sending analysis. An HRMS acts as a strong bridge between employees and HR for an uninterrupted flow of processes.
Speaks On Behalf of The Company
An HRMS also provides loan and advance ledger, loan request status, history related to loan applied/ rejected. Employees can visit the ‘loan and advance’ module to get information and status of their requests. Employees can keep a check on the company's loan agreement terms, interest rate and life cycle of their loan. The system facilitates to upload supporting documents through the module. Loan and Advance amounts are automatically reflected in the employee payroll slab, making it easier for HR also to generate monthly payroll. An HRMS also reflects any change in company policies with respect to work hours, dress code or holidays.
In short, an HRMS represents your company on a shared platform in the organisation.
