Benefits of Digitising the

HR Department 

From SME to Enterprise, digitisation has a positive knock on effect that c save costs, improve client retention and ensure adherence to company policy. The following are benefits that we, at Braeven, have experienced first hand within HR departments from digitisation initiatives:

Paper trail is replaced by a digital trail

Never worry about misplacing a document or contract again or wasting time on searching for specific information. Correct initiatives, ensures that you can focus on your responsibilities and not be worried about tedious admin. Additionally, audit trails together with digital signatures ensures that there is full accountability at every step. 

Future Proofing Recruitment and Reducing Employee Turnover

Smooth mobile experiences, data-driven pre-selection processes, employee career guidance and personalized, AI-based onboarding programs, are just a few reasons for digitising HR, thereby, improving the employees experience in your business.

Enforcing HR Processes

HR is riddled with stringent processes and procedures that need to comply with corporate governance as well as external frameworks. Think Incident responses, COVID-19 compliance, employee termination, recruitment, leave, etc all follow very specific processes that are specific to your organisation and require a full audit trail - enter Digitisation.

Employee Training and Development

Developing employees is a  critical component within HR. Digitisation can assist HR managers in giving them the surety that employees have completed the correct training in alignment with organisation goals as well as personal employee career aspirations. Additionally, by removing paper based training and testing, leaders have a full and accurate proof of training audit trail. 

Automating Mundane, Repetitive activities

Automation allows certain activities such as employee onboarding/offboarding, employee data management, performance management, CV screening and payroll processing to be done reliably and accurately whilst ensuring that every step is done in a compliant manner factoring in corporate governance. 

Encourages collaboration

Digitising HR as well as the business as a whole ensures that there is collaboration both internally (Legal with HR with Finance for recruitment) as well as externally (HR Department with external suppliers). This ensures that everyone from the CEO to the newly employed intern are properly aligned with operational and strategic goals. 

Greater Insights

Imagine having access to metrics such as absence rate/cost, Net Promoter Score, % Cost of Workforce, Turnover Rate, Training Effectiveness, etc. How would that benefit your daily responsibilities and facilitate reporting to the board. Digitisation gives you access to this an more.
