With hybrid being the preferred work arrangement, there’s a greater urgency to go digital and adopt an automated HR system. But, to make a successful transition, companies should first identify what this model looks like for them so they can determine what tools and processes they need to support this new environment.
As we are navigating through this transition, work location has become more important for applicants when considering a new position. Most, if not all, want to know whether the position offered is on-site, remote or hybrid and, with this detail alone, they will make a swift decision about which employers they would like to pursue.
HR automation is expected to enhance the efficiency of the HR employees as it frees employees from doing tedious manual tasks allowing them to focus on more complex tasks such as strategizing and decision making. The automation of HR processes has streamlined vital yet time-consuming tasks, especially as hybrid work continues to expand. For example, an HRIS can efficiently process payroll without the hassle of manual errors. This is the reason why the majority of the HR professionals said that payroll is the least affected HR process during hybrid work. Because of HR tech, HR professionals can dedicate more of their time to other tasks rather than correcting errors and discrepancies.
