How to improve your HR productivity

The HR team forms the core of an organization. In addition to recruitment and payroll processing, the department helps to develop a company’s strategy, culture, and handle employee-centered activities. They play a crucial role in boosting your workforce, thus enhancing workplace productivity.

However, the HR department is overburdened with manual tasks such as paper work, leave management, attendance management, adhering to compliances, maintaining data, and so on. Hence, they are unable to carry out other essential activities.

“HR administrators can spend up to 2-3 hours daily on the tedious process of maintaining the attendance register, where a single error can cause a discrepancy in payroll, and the entire process would have to be repeated” said an HR personnel of an e-commerce company.

Research shows that office goers in Singapore are the least productive among the 11 countries polled. The study further reveals that Singapore workers spend only 60% of their time on main work duties. Whereas, the average hours worked by every employee was 45.1 hours per week in 2017.

Therefore, if you want to increase your workforce productivity, you have to ensure the productivity of your HR team. This is possible only by including automation into their day-to-day tasks. A lot of administrative HR procedures can be automated and streamlined with tech tools like HRMS. This robust automated software can allow the team to devote time and resources to more strategic initiatives to improve workplace productivity and employee morale.
