The key role of the HR department has not to be demonstrated anymore on both financial and strategic levels. With appropriate Human Resources management, the company can count on competent, motivated and effective staff who will help to differentiate from its competitors.
However, HR department‘s staff faces heavy administrative burdens that are time-consuming and source of substantial costs. That is how much time which cannot be allocated to the management and well-being of each collaborators. Among these unproductive administrative tasks, we find those related to the recruitment process. Nowadays, many companies propose different document management tools. These tools partially or even completely automate some steps of the recruitment process.
Examples include the company “CareerBuilder” which, via an intelligent deck, helps to match companies with the best employees, thus avoiding spending hours storting out the different CVs.
An other interesting company is “CheckHub” which proposes a document management tool that automates the collection, digitalisation and checking of legal documents that are asked during the recruitment process. One of its strengths: this automatic document collection device respects new GDPR standards (see article GDPR). Besides, this management tool offers automatic reminders which are directly sent on the applicant’s smartphone, informing him about documents that he must deliver to complete the recruitment process.
Another efficient device is the intelligent control of attendances, activities, procedures and material of the staff through a management platform. Many companies propose this kind of service and it is the case of “DuiGlobal” that allows a convenient communication between staff and HR department trough personalized reports, immediate tasks assignments and shared schedules.
At the age of automation and digitalisation, about 80% of the human resource department work consists in performing administrative tasks. HR process automation offers a considerable time-saving and is, as a result, the first step towards a better staff management which will be more focused on the recruitment itself, training, retention and employee’s well-being. Think about that!
