This blog post is the second of a 4-part series that will describe how document management solutions benefit human resource departments.
Focus on People, Not Paper
Few departments within an organization manage the tremendous amount of paperwork that commonly flows through human resources. Because of this crushing volume, human resource personnel often find themselves spending more time pushing paper than on higher value tasks.
For example, the average personnel file contains more than 50 different records. An employee’s file begins the moment he or she applies for a job and grows considerably with each year of service. The sheer volume of information associated with each employee can be overwhelming. As a result, storage and management of personnel documents in paper format no longer remains a viable option for most human resource departments.
Specific human resource data that must be electronically captured, managed and protected for both past and present employees include:
- Job Applications
- Recruiting Information
- Insurance Information
- Benefits Elections
- Workers Compensation Documents
- Performance Reviews
- Payroll documents
