Mobile devices have now become the focal point for any business since they evolved as a hyper operative tool.
Industry insiders have suggested that there will be 5.6 billion smartphones globally by 2019. It should be no surprise, smart phone adoption is reaching the farthest corners of the globe and the subsequent impact of enterprise applications enabled by these devices is driving business performance improvement and will continue to do so.
Thus, with the widespread adoption of the technology and businesses looking forward to adopt it for every organizational operation, HR and related departments are no exceptions! More and more workforce management software providers are coming up with their mobile applications. Prior to this, there were lot of misconceptions regarding data management and security, but the applications are carefully built in secured environment in an enterprise-ready format. Thus, Mobile HCM is beginning to become the norm in every industry, whether during the hiring and onboarding process or as a regular part of daily work.
Here are the reason why an organization must opt for Mobile HRIS:
No Restrictions due to Geographical Locations:
HR systems accelerate the processes that must be executed and approved on real time basis. Since, the companies having geographically distributed workforce and the employees are required to travel extensively, the mobile HRIS systems allow employees to access their information from wherever and whenever required. It makes employees accessible to the company’s system despite of their physical locations.
Mobile HRIS allows employees to have necessary data in real time and make better-informed decisions faster. Increased data value and awareness also improve the integrity of data. At the most basic level, all mobile HRIS should allow employees to access their own personal information and work schedules from any mobile device which prevents accidental no-shows and help managers to avoid spending time distributing schedules and related information.
Mobile HRIS makes the processes easier and faster than switching on a laptop. The employees can also use the technology to perform some routine tasks in fraction of time. On the other hand, if the employer or the administration needs to know about the attrition rates or total headcount or any other information regarding the business, they need not to go to the system, log in the account and find the information, they can simply view and manage the data on their smartphones. Another benefit of mobile HRIS that boosts productivity is the reduction or elimination of downtime.
HR organizations that don’t have a modern HR and talent strategy are missing out on creating real value to the business. Therefore, it is very important for businesses to keep pace with the changing market trends and demands. Adopting mobile apps for HCM systems will not only help them reduce their administration time and efforts, but to remain competitive in the dynamic market environments.
The facts speak for themselves, mobile devices and applications are in employees’ everyday lives and HR has a great opportunity to improve engagement and productivity of its workers by providing targeted and user-friendly mobile applications that not only improve the system and processes but also help them stay updated with changing market trends. Businesses must change to remain competitive, and implementing mobile HRIS is an effective way of staying ahead of the competition.
