How to Improve HR

There is nothing in business that does not come down to people, and HR departments are always looking for ways to improve productivity, communication, and collaboration. Find out how to reinvent your processes with a mobile app like HeyBuddy. HeyBuddy is a cloud-based human resources tool that can revolutionize the way you do business. The app makes all of your employee data (your HRIS system) and organizational content accessible, securely, within seconds on any mobile device. The app does not require Wi-Fi, can be used online and offline, and is ideal for organizations of all sizes.

Reasons to Automate Your HR Processes

  1. Reduce time spent on administrative tasks.

Studies at USC’s Center for Effective Organizations indicate that more than 70% of an HR professional’s time is spent on administrative tasks.  That means only two out of every five weekdays are dedicated to a company’s strategic initiatives. HeyBuddy can free up time, enabling HR to be more productive in terms of generating business results. Imagine putting simple tasks like vacation requests or expense reporting onto an employee’s mobile device to be quickly handled the same way they handle their personal calendars or online banking, no matter where they happen to be in the world.

  1. Improve accuracy and compliance.

Processes that are performed manually are prone to human error.  Once automated with the HeyBuddy app, the opportunity for error is virtually eliminated. This may be especially true for compliance issues. It’s not uncommon to ask five members of your HR staff to perform the same tasks and end up with five different versions. Using the app to help execute the process consistently and produce an audit trail will help you avoid potentially costly non-compliance issues.

  1. Improve morale and engagement.

The opportunity to do meaningful work is a key driver of employee engagement, and most people are frustrated by manually filling out forms and other mundane tasks all day. When you use HeyBuddy to automate administrative processes, you’ll free up their time for work they enjoy. Happy employees are more productive, and higher productivity goes straight to the bottom line. Also, greater satisfaction equates to better employee retention, so improving morale and engagement has a clear ROI.

  1. Improve training methodologies.

One of the best uses of HR technology, such as HeyBuddy, is its capacity for mobilizing your training processes. Develop tools that enable employees to learn in an easier way – wherever they are and whenever they have time to spare. Place videos, handbooks, company videos, podcasts and tutorials in the cloud to allow them to constantly enhance their knowledge. Implement push notifications to share important information, such as new company policies or notices of office closures, directly to employees’ mobile devices as soon as they become available.
