A day in the life of an HR professional and the impact of an employee kiosk
Have you ever asked an employee to do something like fill out a form, and yet they forget to do it? As a result, you have to seek them out and repeatedly request that this task get addressed because essentially, your job is to make sure that it happens. Sound familiar? Examples like this are common in large companies, particularly manufacturing companies where there are many employees without computer access and potentially multiple shifts that are active beyond the typically HR hours, making it difficult to coordinate meetings and convey information.
These are some of the reasons why employee kiosks are in demand in the HR industry as a tool to help connect individuals in the workplace around the clock and streamline tasks!
Employee kiosks are interactive, multi-functional office portals that serve as a virtual representative of a Human Resources department and more. In cases where the work force largely outweighs the HR staff, these kiosks serve to assist HR with things like:
- Helping employees fill out paperwork
- Printing, scanning and submitting documents
- Scheduling appointments between employees and HR
- Notifications to HR staff detailing completion of tasks
- Management of payroll and time clock
- Time off requests, MSDS information access
- Promote and communicate new programs
Not all kiosks are created equal

Employee kiosks provide instant value for all
If you are an HR professional, you are well aware that your role is vital and decreasing the amount of time you spend pushing paper and facilitating everyday tasks is of significant value to your organization. Employee kiosks allow you to make more time for bigger projects and administrative duties that help the company prosper. In addition, employees are very much in favor of having self service kiosks and on-demand access to information and tools when they need them!
