Efficiency is key across HR verticals. Although we may all agree that HR has to be run more effectively, what have businesses actually done to improve their HR procedures? You can boost productivity and better manage your workforce by utilizing tools and resources created to make HR processes more effective.
Hear from experts on making HR processes highly efficient.
Having a good company culture
“Company culture is a huge component of modern HR, especially in remote companies such as ours. To lighten the load on our sole HR employee, we created a culture committee to delegate the duty of making our virtual office a more welcoming and positive environment. The committee consists of members of different departments and it meets monthly to discuss important topics and conceive culture projects and initiatives.”
Tasia Duske, CEO of Museum Hack
Digitizing the HR department
“We’ve made our HR department more efficient by digitizing a lot of paperwork, especially for onboarding. Getting new employees acclimatized is one of the hardest and most time-consuming aspects of HR, and we wanted to streamline the process, especially now that we’re in the era of remote work. First, we developed a reliable employee self-service portal that frees up time for everyone by allowing employees to access information and perform tasks without having to contact HR directly. Next, we worked to digitize as much of the onboarding process as possible, making it quicker and easier for employees to sign essential documents and get started acclimatizing even before their first day.”

Leveraging social recruiting to find better candidates
“Today’s talent acquisition is rife with challenges. Finding candidates has become harder than ever, let alone finding qualified candidates. Social recruiting has been an effective method for us to not only reach more candidates but reach qualified passive candidates as well. This is because the organic network effect of social media allows you to reach a wider talent audience than you might through other means. With around 70% of Americans using social media daily and 86% of job seekers using social media in their job search, social media is the place candidates frequent most. Using social media for recruiting has made our talent acquisition more effective, efficient, and faster.”

Developing a step-by-step hiring process for team leaders
“Historically, we would let our team leaders go through our hiring process on their own. This resulted in a few bad hires, which ultimately cost our company a lot of money. More recently we developed a simple step-by-step hiring process that the team leader can easily implement. On top of that, we added an extra confirmation call with team leaders, potential new employees, and our recruitment manager. This call is to ensure we have a second pair of eyes on the process and make sure the person being assessed is the right fit for our company. It’s a little bit more effort upfront, but in the long run, this saves us a lot of money and headaches.”
