Here’s a frequent problem that we come across time and time again: managers don’t know, or understand, what HR processes to follow.

Our solution is to introduce powerful workflow software capability that eases managers through common processes.

For many, management procedures – whether it’s managing an induction, performance appraisal, handling a disciplinary situation, or addressing a persistent absenteeism issue – the processes that a manager needs to follow are fairly predictable, and should always be delivered in a consistent manner amongst the people management team and across the entire organisation.

Yet individual managers are often left to figure things out for themselves, or are asked to reinvent the wheel each time they encounter a new situation.

Or, on the other hand, HR will often step in to deal with people management responsibilities to ensure consistency and compliance.

Why should people management tasks be given to senior management, or back to an HR professional, whether internal or external? This is incredibly inefficient and takes up valuable time and resources.

A modern, efficient business with a strong HR department should adopt HR software that allows intelligent workflow process design, that ultimately walks managers through many common HR and management processes in a structured way.

For example, a manager faced with a disciplinary situation should be provided with a structured process to follow, designed in line with HR best practice, ensuring that they do the right things, at the right time, and capture the right information at each step in that process.

This enables organisations to improve consistency and save precious management time.
