Organisations, large or small, need to find a way to work smarter.
Fortunately, the advent of a new generation of people management systems means that companies can now safely equip their managers to be more accountable, while at the same time automating many inefficient, manual processes. This can help to both reduce HR costs and improve management standards.
There are a number of ways that all organisations can reduce HR costs, without compromising management standards.
Let's start with something fairly basic, and let's give managers access to information on the people they are responsible for managing.
Cloud-based HR technology make it easy to broaden access to information, and there is really no need for HR departments to be in the position where they are the gatekeeper to all employee data. This only creates a bottle-neck in the organisation, increases costs unnecessarily and means that managers aren’t being given the information they need to do their jobs properly.
Managers’ productivity can be significantly increased by allowing them access to their own employee data from wherever they happen to be working.
And at the same time HR can be freed from the role of glorified database administrators, spending endless hours responding to basic requests for information.
