The nature of the workforce has gone through some massive changes in the last several years. The days of the gold watch retirement gift from the company you’ve spent decades working for have been replaced by a rise in contract work, rapid job switching in search of more opportunity, and side hustles. Finding the right candidates for open positions is critical to any organization, the process of vetting and screening can be very time consuming and in some cases, will still not result in the perfect match.
What does all this mean for already overworked Human Resources departments without HR self service kiosks tools? Put quite simply: More work.
From federal tax forms and benefit enrollment forms to company policies and background checks, employee on boarding is already a paperwork intensive process. But when you crank up the speed at which these things occur and add the sea of paperwork that comes with departing employees, your HR team can easily find itself trapped in an endless swirl of paper pushing.
How much paper pushing? Well, according to a survey from TotalJobs, the average HR department can spend nearly 10% of their work week on administrative tasks alone. While these duties are important to any HR team, we’re talking about a part of your business that’s unrelated to your revenue stream spending nearly a tenth of their time on mundane paperwork. Putting costs aside, this kind of bureaucracy greatly distracts your HR department from big picture employee development tasks that actually add value to your business.
