Why Digitizing HR is a Good Place to Begin

Document Management Richmond

Moving to digital processes through electronic Document Management is critical for businesses on track to succeed in the 21st century, yet twenty-five percent of businesses are still holding back. Document Management software can help these businesses become better managers of their available resources, from time, money and office equipment to their most valuable asset-their human resources.

Why Digitize HR?

According to a Society for Human Resource Management article, HR is the best place to begin your digital transformation.

Here are just a few of the ways going paperless with Document Management can be a boon to your Richmond HR Department:

  • Save time— Streamlining your Richmond HR processes can deliver huge time savings. Processes that previously took as long as a few days can be completed in just a few minutes, and the trickle-down effect to other departments can help streamline workflows across your organization.

  • Save money— There's no denying that paper-based processes cost money. From printing to storage systems, paper solutions demand cash. You'll also realize tremendous savings when employees can sort, file, and process documents faster, freeing them up to concentrate on mission-critical tasks.

  • Improved accuracy— Mistakes cost money, and they can have a negative impact on employee morale. Electronic Document Management means fewer manual data entry errors.

  • 24/7/365 availability— Today's employees want the ability to access their HR information from any location. From remote workers to employees who just want to check vacation or insurance status while they're out of the office, digitizing HR has never been more relevant—or more important.

  • Younger workforces— Younger employees have had so little experience with paper processes that they expect digital access as a matter of course. Companies who are late in the game when it comes to embracing digitization may lose these incredibly talented and tech-savvy employees to their more modern competitors.
