As you know, HR plays a critical role in recruiting, hiring, training, and retaining the lifeblood of your business: people. But despite HR’s strategic role, it has traditionally lagged behind other departments in terms of adopting user-friendly, employee-focused technology investments. Legacy tools and reams of paper are still often used to prepare, sign, act upon, and manage the overwhelming document load, from recruitment and onboarding to performance management and off-boarding. The combination of outdated processes and additional paperwork limits HR staff’s ability to do their most important job: hire and support employees.
That’s changing as HR turns to the cloud to digitize the agreement process. According to a 2018 PwC survey of HR executives, 75 percent of respondents said that they’ve moved at least one HR process to the cloud, while 40 percent have core systems (talent and acquisition management and HR information systems, for example) in the cloud.
And those efforts are critical because documents and forms are overwhelming HR departments. In a 2018 HR Daily Advisor survey, 65 percent of respondents said that HR document growth was “considerable.” For HR departments that still rely on legacy systems of agreement, the document deluge makes a difficult problem worse, frustrating everybody involved—candidates, employees, and HR staff.
The following is a guide to adopting a modern system of agreement to enable HR staff, candidates, and employees to easily manage every form, document, and contract involved in the employment lifecycle. Don’t let outdated processes and paper prevent your company from attracting—and retaining—the best and brightest people.
