Human Resources (HR) Software Buyers Guide

What is Human Resources (HR) Software?

Human resources software is used to improve the overall management of employee data by automating administrative tasks otherwise performed by the HR department. Core functionalities of HR software include employee data management, applicant tracking and recruitment, benefit and payroll administration, time off and sick leave, as well as training and development.

With a HR application, employee records and applicant data can be recorded, updated and accessed from one central location by all team members. This overview of personnel profiles also allows managers to keep an eye on events such as pending performance reviews, upcoming time-off and payment.

These apps help to further improve workforce management with features to manage training and development, as well as to track employee performance over time. HR software often includes talent management tools such as learning and development, succession planning, rewards management and employee evaluation.

Many HR applications can also be used to attract and recruit the right talent. With features such as job boards, CV collection and storage, online application tools and social media integration, your company can ensure it is finding the best matches. Once the hiring process begins, features such as interview note sharing and consolidation can be used to streamline the process.

HR software can also be used to increase company wide communication through social features such as peer recognition, goal and value sharing, business news feeds and sharable company calendars so no one forgets birthdays and anniversaries.

More robust HR solution can also be used to align corporate goals with company value and culture. This can be done through company related documents, such as employee handbooks and safety guides. You can also set defined employee or team objectives and raise awareness of company values with reward schemes and public recognition for goals reached.

Fortunately, in recent years, time and attendance tracking software have replaced these obsolete methods. Here are some of the time and attendance tracking functionalities you would want from your HR tool.

You should try to avoid choosing an HR solution that doesn't integrate well with your existing software.
