HR systems must adapt in tandem with changing organizational cultures. While this may appear to be a no-brainer, HR systems have taken some time to adapt from the decades-old patchwork manual procedure. With the advent of self-service, the HR landscape is rapidly evolving toward a more rational and efficient approach.
Employee self-service is one of the most common and modern features of HRMS. It helps businesses of all sizes to implement automated data processes. It allows the employees to perform a variety of tasks which helps increase efficiency and save numerous labour hours which otherwise would have to be completed by the HR. Employees have their login access to the ESS portals, allowing them to view and update personal information such as their address, contact details, score cards and financial data. Employees are also enabled to access the schedules and other information like their payslips, training planner, roster, leave planner, loan status, approved overtime, days remaining for appraisal, disciplinary actions, etc.
There are several benefits of ESS. Some of them are as follows:
1. It boosts the efficiency and pace of administrative tasks
ESS portals can be used by employees to track their working hours and send applications and time off receive approvals on a single platform. There is no need for the employees to send emails to different people of position to seek clearance for leave requests. The HR department no longer has to chase every employee to get the information. With the advent of ESS portals, the employees are not forced to spend time on administrative activities, rather more attention is given to tasks that contribute to the company mission and vision.
2. Employee information update
It is imperative to have up-to-date employee information and get rid of inaccurate data, but it is a time taking and tedious process to track down the changes of each employee regularly. Here, the employee service plays a crucial role as it enables the employee to update his information as and when it needs to be changed after the approval of the concerned authority.
3. Easy accessibility
The big advantage of self-service being cloud-based is that it can be accessed from any location like home, another office wing, or even on a mobile device. The employee doesn’t feel the need to wait for HR representatives to access information.
4. Information transparency
The authenticity of information on the ESS can be checked and re-checked by the employees. Employees can see documents about salary revisions, corporate policies, grievances, salary revisions, etc. at any time. They can have easy access to records of leave and attendance. They don't have to waste time following up on email threads or bombarding the HR department with queries.
5. Error reduction
Self-service system also helps to decrease time and errors by making data entry and transfer of data faster and more efficient. When data is entered manually, human error has always been a significant factor. Self-service system almost eliminates data transfer problems and makes it much easier for HR managers to discover errors in newly entered employee or application data.
6. Increased employee morale
ESS portals give a single platform for co-workers to communicate their thoughts and collaborate on a projects’ execution through chat. These portals also include a contact directory for employees, as well as a planner for birthdays, employment anniversaries, and other critical employee accomplishments. Employees can socialize with one another in this way, enhancing the atmosphere of togetherness. Employees feel more engaged to the firm and make more significant contributions when social interaction between bosses and employees increases.
7. Improved data protection
Companies may now shift critical data to the cloud and assure greater security thanks to technological advancements. It is a boon for the organizations as employee information sliding into physical files, makes it prone to misuse, loss, and damage. Data can be safely stored on the cloud, with only the right people having access to it via proper passwords.
8. Minimize environmental footprint
As advised by environmentalists, businesses should take considerable steps towards establishing a paperless workplace culture, many organizations are adopting software solutions with an ESS interface. Companies may help to make the earth a better place by reducing deforestation by turning paperless. One must reduce their reliance on physical files and folders and contribute to a better world by utilizing this feature.
Employee self-service not only boosts workforce productivity but also helps to ensure information openness and data security in the cloud. Above all, it can make staff more accountable and attentive, ensuring that critical details are never overlooked.
