Gone are the days, when employee management was just restricted to the Human Resources (HR) department of the company. With changes in the working style of teams, (read remote working), team leads and managers of small and large teams have taken the responsibility and are seeking solutions across different functional areas in an employee lifecycle such as:
- Employee onboarding
- Employee engagement
- Attendance Management
- Performance Evaluation
- Employee offboarding
A good set of software tools can help you effectively manage the entire lifecycle of employees from the time they join the company until exit and even post that (referral programs, receive feedback on experience with the company, ensuring smooth transition for employees to new company, etc.).
What should you ideally look for in an employee management system?
An ideal employee management system should:
- Be easy-to-use
- Generate customized reports
- Provide analytics on various performance parameters
- Be easily integrable with third party tools
- Offer custom accessibility settings as per employee's role in the organization
The above list is not exhaustive, however, it is a good place to start your selection of an employee management software solution. Also, it is good practice to search for a unique offering within each tool that might just fit your organization's hierarchy, policies and internal processes.
