3 Reasons Why Ease of Use in a Core HR Solution is Vital
You may be in one of two situations: 1) You want to implement a core HR solution for your company, but are worried about the changes that will happen -OR- 2) You are currently using a core HR solution but are struggling with usability. This is critical because ease of use in a core HR solution affects the successful adoption of the solution in a company.
1. User Adoption
We’ve all heard to saying, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” The same rings true for software adoption: If a core HR solution is implemented in your company and no one uses it, does it even exist? If your core HR solution isn’t easy to use for everyone (you, managers, and employees), user adoption will be poor.
According to Sierra-Cedar,workforce management solutions are seeing a 56% adoption rate among organizations with 2,500 or fewer employees.
2. Compliance and Regulation
Complaining about compliance? You’re probably not the only one. Compliance with state and federal regulations can be tricky enough without worrying about how your company’s employees will fit into those specific, and oftentimes changing, regulations. An HR solution will allow managers to easily maintain control of how their company will keep in regulation with federal and state law, as well as create a smooth transition when law changes occur.
Not only should your solution be flexible enough to adapt to changing specifications, but it should also be intuitive by providing alerts and reports that allow you to quickly identify potential compliance issues. Your HR software should also operate on a single-system platform so when you make changes in the system, those updates are reflected across other areas like payroll and time & attendance. The whole point of looking for a HR solution is the solution aspect of it - why would you want a software that won’t make your life easier?
3. Return on Investment (ROI)
We’ve all heard the phrase, “time is money,” but a great HR solution can prove this to be true. Time is the ultimate ROI when it comes to HR management; when the HR department has to continually fix minute problems, those problems can lead to actual dollars lost from the company.
Deloitte conducted a case study regarding the transforming of an HR department to a SaaS human resource management system and found that there was the potential for 40 percent reduction in HR costs per employee over the course of 10 years - totaling a savings of $500 million. Just think of all the growth your company can afford if you use the right core HR solution system!
