In the digital age, there’s a lot of talk about “moving to the cloud.” So why should your HR solutions be any different? Of those HR professionals who want to replace their software in the next year, 54 percent say it’s because they need better functionality and capabilities, according to Brandon Hall Group.
By embracing cloud-based HR platforms, you’ll gain increased accessibility and productivity, better integration, and even improved environmental impact. Let’s take a closer look at why so many businesses are choosing cloud-based HR technology.
It might not be the first advantage that comes to mind when you think about digital-based HR solutions, but it’s definitely one that many companies will want to consider. It's becoming more common to go green both in personal and professional settings.
You can further your commitment to eco-conscious practices by reducing your paper usage and keeping all of your information in the cloud. Plus, it’s way more convenient; you won’t have to hunt down paperwork or create an intricate filing system. Everything will be right there at your fingertips (with no printing necessary).
Increased Flexibility and Control
Many people assume they can have flexibility or control, but not both. But with cloud-based HR technology, you really can have it all. When you house everything in the cloud, you can control exactly who gets to access what and safeguard employee and company data.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll be limited in the kinds of benefits you can offer. When you manage your benefits through a cloud-based system, you aren’t restricted to a one-size-fits-all approach. You can customize your options to fit your employees’ needs, whether you have 20 workers or several thousand.
When you have a traditional HR management setup, you may find that your company’s benefits budget won’t go as far. With cloud-based HR platforms, you won't be faced with installation or maintenance costs and will be able to offer your employees more options and better accessibility without having to factor that into your overall costs.
With JungoHR’s platform, you'll gain integrated technology, expert assistance, and increased connectivity to insurance carriers—features to which your company would not have access otherwise. Essentially, you're able to stretch your HR capabilities much further with cloud-based platforms.
If you have employees working in various locations—whether it be in the next town, across the country, or halfway around the world—it can be difficult to keep employees informed and engaged with a traditional HR management setup. But when your platform is cloud-based, you’ll be able to make your employees feel included and up to date.
This will encourage them to communicate and engage in all other areas, which can improve your company culture and even increase productivity. It’s a great way to streamline your operations, solidify your brand identity, and ensure employee satisfaction.
