Managers play a key role in streamlining HR processes

With a perspective of supporting employee requests from various departments, managers are required to manage their direct report employee needs, requests and career growth framework. The ability to respond to these direct report employee needs, is extremely critical in improving employee satisfaction, retaining employees and streamlining overall HR processes. Employees approach managers to review their benefits, promotions, career framework or approvals of their personal/departmental requests. Enterprises’ on the run managers are inundated with several administrative tasks and delayed processing causes significant business inefficiencies and could potentially impact enterprises’ bottom line. Without empowering these managers, these managers are unable to respond to these requests in a timely manner.

Managers are required to complete timely review and approvals of Time Entry, Leave requests, Travel & Expenses, Purchase Orders, Purchase Requisitions and Personnel Requests.   Delay in approvals in regular and routine tasks causes loss of productive time, keeping the employees waiting for their manager’s approvals.  Implementing faster techniques in organizations which give employees comfort level. Introducing mobile technologies and practices in HR, would dramatically speed up business processes.

Business beyond country boundaries

Managing an enterprise globally and executing locally has become extremely important as the work forces and organizations have spread rapidly beyond country boundaries.  Managing this change, enterprises are over loaded with drastic increase in travel expense processing and approvals, managing employee services remotely, delay in traditional processes, and have to be addressed to manage diversity, retention and satisfaction of employees. The ability for mobile technologies to quickly respond to employee needs anywhere, anytime, reduces the overall cost per employee.

Connectivity and collaboration with HR makes it easier for the employees to engage in HR activities by promoting a mobile self-service solution to empower employees to view and update personal information anywhere, anytime and quickly respond to newly rolled out HR processes, without any additional training.
