Managers Struggling to Keep Records Up to Date
A key challenge in any HR professional’s career, is making sure that all important employee documents and data is kept accurate and up to date. But when this is being done manually, it can be tough.
“We were using a lot of spreadsheets and paper records” explains Jessica Neil, Senior HR Coordinator at Children with Cancer UK. “Any organisation handling HR like this will know where I’m coming from, and how hard it is to track staff sick leave, annual leave, performance appraisals and paper HR files. The biggest challenge was making sure managers kept the records up to date.”
Despite doing a fantastic job at chasing updates, scanning forms, filing paperwork, and making sure her organisation’s record-keeping remained intact, it was a balancing act that put strain on the group’s resources. Jessica knew that there was a better approach, and she took on the responsibility of finding it.
More Accurate Record-Keeping with an Electronic System
Jessica decided that the best way to help her managers keep on top of absence, holidays and staff records, was to move their paper-based processes to a modern, electronic system.
“Since implementing People®, we have noticed a huge difference in the way we work” says Jessica. “We can now generate reports on attendance for senior leaders, and staff can even monitor their own leave and tasks, and easily access the organisational chart.”
Managers Now Find it Easy to Keep Records Up to Date
What we liked most about Jessica’s comments on her new HR system, was that we were able to help her overcome her most pressing issue – managerial record keeping. She happily told us that managers are now more accountable for the records they are in charge of, and they have noticed an increase in the accuracy of record-keeping at work.
Jessica also added that her own working life has improved as a result – electronic records mean no filing, and no scanning!
