The Benefits of Automating Human Resources Processes

By Tori Cameron on October 21, 2019

From resumes and emergency contact forms to I-9’s, W-4’s, e-mails, and PDF documents, human resources departments tend to get engulfed in extensive amounts of paper documents. As a result, managing HR processes such as HR onboarding for new employees can be a mammoth task.

If your organization's HR processes—especially the onboarding process—is entirely manual, an employee must track down a variety of documents that the new employee completes then manually enter the data into their system. This task is not only time-consuming and tedious but increases the odds of unintended errors and typos.

The KnowledgeLake platform helps you intelligently automate HR processes like onboarding. Due to the information needed by the organization, HR professionals must also be careful with sensitive data. Controlling and limiting access to employee records can be challenging when working with paper. How does an HR professional do so beyond locking the file cabinet?

In short, there is no easy way to manage HR processes and documents with manually based methods. Instead of being a strategic asset to an organization, HR professionals get bogged down with tracking, storing, and locating necessary forms. The growing complexity of business challenges an HR department faces every day impacts an organization's bottom line and long-term business goals.

When organizations automate HR processes like onboarding, they quickly realize a multitude of benefits. These include reduced time spent searching for necessary files and documents, increased workspace, self-serving onboarding processes, less stressful and time-consuming compliance audits, and reduced need for duplicate data entry.

KnowledgeLake has developed an award-winning, cloud-based platform designed to help automate your HR processes like onboarding new employees and managing employee records with ease.
