How HCM is Completely Changing HR and People Management

How HCM is Completely Changing HR and People Management

 

How HCM is Completely Changing HR and People Management

 

In the U.S., human resources professionals spend almost 14 percent of their time maintaining employee records. By automating business processes related to HR, talent management, hiring, time and attendance tracking, payroll, mileage tracking, expense filing and processing, and scheduling, companies can save money and experience an increase in productivity and efficiency.

How HCM is Changing HR and People Management

While digital transformation is a high priority for many organizations, the majority of companies still perform some HR processes manually. By implementing human capital management (HCM) solutions, companies can automate and streamline those processes.

HCM software makes people management easier by automating compliance, benefits, incident and discipline tracking, asset management, onboarding, and more. As a result, it frees up the HR department to be more strategic and people-focused rather than paperwork-focused.   

5 Big HCM Software Benefits

Companies lose an estimated 20 to 30 percent in revenue annually due to inefficiencies. You might find that your organization’s business processes become more efficient when HCM software is implemented. For example, in many cases, HCM software:

  1. Increases onboarding productivity by 30-60 percent.
  2. Reduces annual employee turnover by 9 percent.
  3. “…helps you attract the best people and allows you train them on what’s needed in real-time,” according to D!gitalist Magazine.
  4. Automates employee benefits, eliminating human error and promoting compliance.  
  5. Reduces payroll processing costs by up to 80 percent and improves paycheck accuracy.

Addressing the value of HCM software, as 5 Core Functions that Benefit from Automation outlined, “These applications help organizations engage in more strategic planning such as choosing training options which improve workers’ skills and talents. It also enables HR departments to identify any gaps in the skills of their current workforce and helps guide future recruitment.”

Are You Ready to Automate Your Company’s HCM Processes?

HCM vendors like Workday (a cloud ERP system for finance, HR, and planning), ServiceNow (software that creates digital workflows that unlock productivity), and TriNet (an industry-tailored, full-service HR solution) are helping companies of all sizes move away from manual, paper-based processes and develop employee potential more effectively.    

More and more companies are recognizing the need for automated processes related to HR and people management, which is why the HCM market is predicted to grow by 9.2 percent over the next few years. The right software for your company will help to increase productivity, lessen turnover, attract better talent, digitize staff benefits, and reduce costs related to payroll.  

EdCast’s MyGuide is Helping Enterprises with HCM Automation

Even if most of your employees are engaged, there is always room for improvement in this area, which is one of the reasons why MyGuide was created.

MyGuide is a tool you can use to create in-app guides that help employees use any application or platform effectively. Here are a few benefits that MyGuide can help deliver for you:

  • Provides in-app training, automation, and intelligence
  • Drives adoption and usage

  • Reduces the need for HCM software customer support

Additionally, MyGuide Increases employee engagement and productivity by building professionals’ confidence in their ability to correctly use HCM software.

By using MyGuide, companies can supercharge your HCM software and maximize its ROI.

How Digitizing & Automating Workflows Will Completely Change the Future of Work

How Digitizing & Automating Workflows Will Completely Change the Future of Work

While the public debates questions about AI and automation, one thing that virtually all enterprises and employees agree upon is the huge potential of streamlining complicated or repetitive internal business processes.

Customers want simpler digital experiences as well.

“By reinventing and automating key business workflows, as well as digitizing data, organizations can create experiences that meet the lofty expectations of employees and customers alike,” wrote a contributor to Digitally Cognizant.

The Benefits of Automating Workflows

Digitizing and automating workflows by helping eliminate the manual transfer of data can lead to happier customers and employees, while also providing serious additional benefits. According to OroCommerce, digitizing workflows can:

  • Increase productivity by reducing the number of actions required to accomplish any given task
  • Reduce paperwork  
  • Prevent human error
  • Lower operational costs
  • Ensure more consistent performance

A contributor at OroCommerce wrote, “Keeping some business routines undigitized might simply cause a mess or even have business critical impact.”

Four Statistics that Show the Business Value of Digitizing Workflows

Another key benefit of digitizing workflows is a healthier bottom line. Here are some statistics that illustrate this:

  1. Digitizing workflows can increase efficiency by 25 percent.
  2. Companies that go paperless save an average of $80 per year per employee. By automating workflows, businesses can effectively eliminate paper-based processes.
  3. By digitizing information-intensive processes companies can cut costs by up to 90 percent and improve turnaround time “by several orders of magnitude,” writes McKinsey & Company. According to this McKinsey report, “One bank digitized its mortgage-application and decision process, cutting the cost per new mortgage by 70 percent and slashing time to preliminary approval from several days to just one minute.”
  4. A report by Forrester indicated that workflow automation increased employee productivity by 8 to 15 percent

These are some of the reasons why 94 percent of senior leaders place digital transformation high on their list of priorities for 2019, with 51 percent planning to move forward on digital initiatives within the next month, according to TechRepublic.

What Will the Future of Work Look Like?  

Work will look very different in the future — and these changes are coming quickly.

“The future of work is more agile, decentralized, autonomous, cross-functional, and integrated than most organizations can imagine,” wrote Greg Petroff, ServiceNow’s Head of Design in Forbes. “That which is analog must be digitized. That which is manual must be automated…. This changes everything—including workflow. And the question isn’t whether it will occur, but how.”

Petroff is right. Digital transformation is here. The problem is that most senior leaders cannot easily and consistently define what digital transformation really means.

EdCast and ServiceNow may be able to help you and your organization. Learn more about best practices in digitization and automating workflows across the enterprise by joining us for our free webinar, “Digitizing HR and IT Workflows to Unlock Employee Productivity.”
