How Automating Your Human Resources Processes Will Delight Your HR Department and Your Budget

Finding employees, hiring employees, keeping employee paperwork straight, training employees, and keeping employees is a constant struggle for business. It’s even more difficult for a small business with tight budgets and few HR staff. How do you keep on top of it?

Technology to handle HR tasks keeps improving, and no longer requires a big budget. I’ve hunted for some of the best HR technology designed to keep your small business humming. Let’s begin with hiring.

JazzHR, Workable, and Zoho Recruiter got great reviews on GetApp. Compare them side by side on GetApp to find the one for you. Need contact management? Workable and Zoho Recruiter have that, but if benchmarking is essential, try JazzHR.

Are you looking for software to handle more HR functions? Are you still using spreadsheets to keep up with HR? It’s time to upgrade, and choices abound.

BambooHR, a cloud-based solution with a mobile app, scores 4.5 stars on Capterra. This software includes applicant tracking, benefits management, performance management, or most of your human resource processes.

Paycor, another cloud-based solution, handles a wide range of processes, including payroll management. Zenefits, also cloud-based, includes 360-degree feedback and compensation management along with the above features.

Like to start slow and add features? WebHR allows you to add modules and handles as few as five employees up to over a thousand. It’s also cloud-based with a mobile app that handles recruitment to retirement.

There’s no reason to put off upgrading your HR system to more automated processes. There are plenty of options to fit your budget.
