HR departments help employees sort out all kinds of problems and always greet employees’ questions with a smile, even when they’re, “If I run a 4K 100 times in a year, will I qualify for a 401 K?” or “Can I use sick leave if I am sick of work?”
HR professionals have heard and seen it all, and they play a very critical role, especially in government. Although they’re responsibilities cover a range of document-heavy tasks, often most of their business processes are still paper-based, creating unnecessary and redundant tasks.
These lengthy processes shouldn’t hold staff back any more. With enterprise content management (ECM), HR can automate much of the storing, searching, compiling, tracking and managing of documents, freeing up time to focus on the needs of the great people they’ve hired.
A recent census report states that there are 22 million federal, state, and local government employees, and each employee hired by the government has to file extensive paperwork. That’s a lot of people, but even more paper.
Below are four steps that will get you closer to achieving optimal human resources automation:
- Start reclaiming staff time by eliminating paper – scan, store, and manage files electronically.
- Automate and integrate systems to optimize processes and create more visibility into where things are and where they need to go.
- Maintain compliance with the latest policies and procedures, as well as required documents and credentials such as FLSA, ERISA, ESA, ADEA and HIPAA.
- Streamline employee onboarding and enable employees to start contributing soon after hire.
With ECM, you can securely manage all of your employees’ confidential information and documents, while complying with government and organization retention policies without leaving your familiar line-of-business system.
Ninety percent of government leaders believe reducing paper would save their agency money. So why not move away from paper and embrace a digital change?
