The amount of paperwork associated with maintaining the information for each area of Human Resources on a daily basis can be overwhelming and frustrating, especially if you don't have a clear process for managing all of the documents. Health and life insurance plans, claim forms, retirement planning options, personnel records, performance reviews, new-hire recruiting – the list goes on and on.
On top of that, ever-changing government regulations require HR departments to have strict processes and procedures in order to maintain compliance. With the amount of information under the responsibility of these departments, this is no small task.
As a result, many companies are finding that technology such as online document management and workflow automation to add structure and organization, can save them time, money and resources.
