Now that summer is winding down, it’s time to start planning for next year. What is running smoothly in your organisation and what is not working for you? Now is a perfect opportunity to make changes and improvements for the coming year. If your company has been struggling to keep up with GDPR changes, payroll compliance, or HR administration, here are some easy ways to improve your operations for 2019.
Human Resources: If your team spending too much time on manual data entry, correcting employee data, or time and attendance-related administrative tasks, it’s time to upgrade to an HR administration software. Your HR team can approve holiday, allocate staff and expenses to specific projects, record time and calculate wages – all within an easy-to-use tool. Using HR software greatly reduces the time your staff spends on administrative tasks, and frees them up for more important strategic initiatives.
Payroll: With so many regulatory changes this year, compliance is a hot topic. Every company must ensure their payroll procedures are compliant with GDPR regulations, and the old way of emailing payslips is no longer acceptable. With so many improvements to payroll technology over the last several years, it is time to look at an online payroll solution. Look for solutions that are web-based, calculate and file your taxes with HMRC, and manage Auto Enrolment. With so many factors involved with payroll, it’s time to look at simplified solutions that will make your operations compliant and ready for the new year.
Time and Attendance: If your time management is not working properly, mistakes or time fraud can quickly derail your company operations. Improving your time and attendance administration can greatly reduce errors and eliminate the possibility of fraud in your organisation. Look for a time and attendance solution that offers employee self-service, integrates with your payroll and HR technology, and gives you access to detailed reporting.
Integration: If your business is utilising different software for payroll, HR, and time and attendance, it is vital that these systems are integrated. Since payroll, HR, and Time and Attendance all rely on accurate employee data, if one system makes a change all of the systems should be updated. When identifying solutions for your business, make sure there are integration capabilities to ease the administrative burden on your HR team.
Ensuring compliance and making technology improvements is a great way to start 2019. Get started by identifying providers that offer integrated, easy-to-use solutions for your business. Make sure they have a CIPP-certified staff to help you when questions come up, and offer customised reporting so you can keep track of expenses.
