Could HRMS Processes really be so easy?

Before the use of cloud based Human Resources Management System (HRMS) traditional human resources department would make use of a dedicated human resource (HR) team to handle all the information of the payroll processing for employees, employee benefits and other human resource practices. Most organizations then have been facing complexity with traditional Human Resource practices as it is very time-consuming, difficult to manage and maintain employee information all together in one place. Many advanced features like managing employee training, evaluating employee performance, travel request, employee self service, manager self-service, leave request and much more cannot be performed by using traditional HR practices.

Thus if HR has to achieve a place of importance in the company hierarchy, it has to incorporate inexpensive cloud systems in the Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Unless HR managers are able to recognize the need of the HR systems in SME, their significance will continue to decline.

Human Resources Management System (HRMS) is a bundled software  application that offers human resource functions like recruitment, training, benefits administration and performance analysis in one system. HRMS is a new method of managing human resources in an organization.

When selecting the appropriate cloud HRMS it is very important to consider the user friendliness and ease of use of the application. The HRMS system should be able to support the HR strategies of the organization. This requires analysis of the accurate uses of HR information, for both the HR unit and the organization.

To implement an efficient HRMS, there is a need to start by asking questions about what information is included in the system.

  • What data is present, and what new employee data is needed for the smooth running of the organization?
  • What are the uses of the data provided?
  • What is the best type of records output for the organization?
  • Who needs the data?
  • When and how often is it required?

The key points to keep in mind when selecting an efficient HRMS are:

Implementation costs can vary from the original estimates due to additional modifications and upgrades that may be added before the end of the implementation process.

Ease of use:
It is vital that the users accept the new application. The cloud HRMS should be designed for the user’s ease of navigation. If data is hard to get or navigation is baffling, users will take a negative outlook towards the system and are less likely to use the system for their HR services.

Training the users:
Training is important for successful implementation of an HRMS. The training takes place in different stages.  First by training everyone in the organization who are responsible with gathering and maintaining information on employees to use the new recording forms of the system. HR staff members and HR executives also need to be trained to use the system.

Security and privacy:
Security is a big issue on the cloud, particularly when personal data about employees is concerned. The system needs to be configured for restricted access to HRMS information on employees. Today, the new trend of “single sign-on” is being put into action to rationalize the access and to provide a realistic level of security for the employee and the organization information.
