Turnover can be costly. According to the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), the average cost-per-hire is $4,129 and the average time it takes to fill a position is 42 days. Until new software options were available, HR practices have had to rely on do-it-yourself methods, spreadsheets, and formulas to manage success. Manually tracking time and recording information is time-consuming, labor-intensive, and less effective for predicting changes influencing business, such as employee turnover. What if you could identify the employees before they resign? Or address the factors causing employees to leave? What if you could prevent a drop in productivity before it happens?
Human Resource Information Software (HRIS) tools help companies manage people more as a business and as a result, delivers new ways to demonstrate value. Advances in HRIS systems provide capabilities for capturing and analyzing workforce data which can be used to predict outcomes and manage a workforce more efficiently.
While HRIS workflow systems won’t replace the role of HR, it has reinvented it by taking the guesswork out of managing talent. By organizing information from multiple sources into one central location, HRIS delivers the analytics necessary to keep goals on track and the guidance to reach your company’s goals. More accurate data translates to a more efficient workforce, more time to focus on workforce strategies and a cost savings to your company. By linking workforce data to business outcomes, it’s easy to see how companies with the advantage of HRIS tools would outperform companies without it. Here are a few ways HRIS technology can help strengthen HR and grow your business.
