Using #hrtech to keep your employees (distantly) engaged.

The recent Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a shift towards employees working from home.

Even now lockdown restrictions are easing, returning to the office to work may not happen in the same way as before.

Many businesses have realised that having employee’s work from home to some degree is a more than viable option.

If managed properly home working can increase productivity and reduce overheads within the organisation whilst maintaining employee engagement.

The key to this is keeping employees informed and engaged. This can not only enhance performance and improve productivity (and therefore profitability) it will have the added benefit of improving employee well-being especially where employees spend more time working from home.

The latest #HRTech means that managing employee information and maintaining communication has never been more possible.

In order to achieve this it is essential to have a system in place that can store your date centrally and securely whilst providing functionality that streamlines your processes and procedures.

Then allowing user’s access to area’s of the system based on their role will not only enable users to allow users to access information and perform tasks that is relevant to their role but also to comply with GDPR.

Ideally the system should provide you with some or all of the following functionality to help you meet your objectives:

  • Online Holiday Booking and Sickness
  • Absence reporting with alerts
  • Absence Planner tools for employees and managers
  • Centralised company documents.
  • Configurable Letter templates
  • Employee Surveys
  • A Company News area.
  • Intelligent Employee Directory.

By implementing suitable #hrtech that provides this functionality will improve all aspects of the HR function as well as increasing employee  performance and productivity and cut operational overheads.
