You’d be hard pressed to find a better example of the way in which technology and the human connection intertwine than the evolution of software for human capital management.
While the challenges facing the modern human resources professional continue to grow in both scope and complexity, the modern workforce is evolving around its own set of expectations. And they're being heard.
Experts say advances in HCM software can’t replace a focus on a genuine and comprehensive consideration of workplace culture if you’re going maintain a competitive program of recruitment and retention in this climate.
Solutions Tailored to Employee Needs
Kathey Palmer, senior vice president for service bureau business development at Asure Software, says technology is a great equalizer, allowing business of all sizes to share in the efficiencies and high-level functionality of digital transformation. But the most successful companies, she says, will leverage the right technology to create solutions tailored to the needs of their workforce, as well as the needs of their business.
“We’ve been in this sort of business for 30 years,” Palmer says. “It has changed more in the past five years than it has in the past 25 years.”
The most successful HR innovations, she says will be “employee-centric,” keeping up with the demands of the modern workforce for transparency, efficiency and breadth of service and innovating around new ways to keep a younger, tech-savvy workforce engaged.
Technology, like Asure’s Evolution HCM software, will facilitate the continued expansion of employee benefits, whether it’s options like same-day payroll or flexible workspace arrangements. “I believe we have only scratched the surface,” Palmer says.
Younger workers are driving demand for digital innovation in processes like onboarding, requests for time off, or reviewing a pay stub. They want to be able to do it easily – and from their phones. “The employee experience has become critical,” Palmer says. “Employee experience is becoming the primary driver as to what is going on in the market today – as it should be.”
A Partnership Built Around the Flexibility You Need
Palmer says her company’s partnership with Payroll Tax Management allows users of Evolution HCM software greater flexibility around their payroll tax compliance, creating the option for clients who don’t have the desire or the expertise to manage their payroll taxes with software alone. Those clients, which include payroll providers, accounting firms, insurance brokers and HR outsourcing businesses, will now have the ability to access PTM services from a single integrated platform. The integration between the two systems, she says, is "the best" the company has seen. "It's a simple process," Palmer says. PTM clients who want the strategic advantage that Evolution HCM provides will reap the same benefits of a smoothly unified system.
