The role of HR today goes way beyond the tactical administrative-based functions of the past.
While these day-to-day tasks must still performed, and in an efficient and cost-effective manner at that, HR is increasingly becoming a strategic part of firm’s corporate growth plans. An article in Forbes Magazine highlights how HR executives must balance the tactical and strategic to achieve optimal results.
As companies grow, often adding employees at locations around the globe, providing human resources services becomes ever more complex. A global HR solution, integrated into an organization’s network server, becomes critical to manage employee hiring and benefits programs, and corporate compliance and policy management.
But a comprehensive HR services solution goes even further – providing a global resource for employers, that is scalable and flexible, and designed to grow with the company. Some of today’s offerings are accessible 24/7 through cloud computing – enabling immediate access to data via personalized self service portals; so employees can search the company knowledge base for answers, and get timely responses to inquiries.
HR Service Delivery – Organizational Efficiencies
A global end-to-end HR services solution empowers companies in a variety of ways. From helping lower operational costs through a reduction in HR inquiries due to direct access to self-service portals, to integrating with other established HR systems such as Oracle and PeopleSoft – to leverage existing data.
For HR professionals, shared services solutions provide access to an unlimited cache of HR documents and forms, easy processing and compliance functionality, and greater business intelligence and decision making metrics through advanced reporting, real-time analytics and intuitive dashboard interfaces.
As most business owners would say, a company is only as good as the people it employs; which is why investing in human resources is so critical to the health and well being of an organization. A firm that takes advantage of the opportunities gained through the use of a system designed to optimize the communication between the company and its employees; as well as help manage the growth and direction of those resources – is one good company indeed.
