HR Management Systems: Breathe HR

Breathe Silver Certified partner

Effortless People Admin

Would you like to save time, simplify your people management process, and make more informed decisions?

HR Management Systems or HR Information Systems (HRIS) improve efficiency and accuracy in people management processes and the collection, storage and usage of people data. Good data is critical for good decision making. Safe data is critical for data protection and GDPR compliance. Portable data supports virtual office. 

Why do I want a HR software?

With all the news of HR software’s and HR tech we can easily lose track of what we actually need. So why would you need one? Here are some questions to consider…

  • Are you using multiple systems, applications, or traditional filing cabinets to manage your employees?
  • Would you benefit from centralising your employee data?
  • Would you like to securely store your company documents, policies, and procedures, all in one place where your employees can easily access?
  • Would you benefit from automatic reporting?
  • Have there been times when holidays or other employee data has been misplaced / lost track of?
  • Do you want to know if your employees are reading documents that have been issued to them?
  • Would you like to empower employees by facilitating an employee self-service system?
  • Would you like to enhance employee engagement and give employees a chance to take ownership of their own goals?
  • Would you like to streamline and automate manual processes, so you have more time to focus on your business and people?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then a HR system will put you on the right track!

The following Q&A’s further outline how an HR software can support you.

How do I make HR functions simpler?

Harnessing technology to automate and take away mundane but essential tasks, makes common sense. An HR management platform not only saves time, but also allows you to input, store and access data securely, no matter your location, and be able to use that data to track staff performance, holiday records, recruitment, and turnover rates.

Ditch the spreadsheets and free up time for what's important
