Why do you need Employee Management Tools?
So why did we list employee management tools? 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
These things, however, are not easy tasks. It takes a lot of effort to successfully manage your employees and get the most out of them. A good set of employee management tools can help you effectively manage the entire lifecycle of employees from the time you have to onboard them when they join the company until exit and even post that (referral programs, receive feedback on experience with the company, ensuring a smooth transition for employees to a new company, etc.).
