Provo, UT (PressExposure) January 02, 2012 -- Several organizations these days are leveraging human resources or HR software packages. May it be a small organization of ten people or a multinational one with several locations all over the globe, it makes a lot of difference if it has a human resource information management system it can depend on. In this way, employee information can be managed more effectively and efficiently, reducing the amount of time needed to accomplish tasks, as well as the amount of paperwork they might generate. We often hear about how human resources management systems can be of benefit to the organization from a manager's point of view, but what about feedback from the rank and file?
Let us face it: not all HR software packages are created equal. Some have more features over the others; some are more affordable than the rest. Others are scalable, while others are meant for use by specific organizations or industries. BambooHR totally understands these, as well as the issues and concerns that users might have regarding a certain type of human resources software solution.
One concern that people have over HR software packages is whether or not they offer employee self-service features. It is not always that human resources personnel can readily update the software with a single change in employee information. There are times when it is a whole lot better if employees can edit certain personal information. This is where employee self-service steps in, one of the features that BambooHR is proud to have in its human resources information management system offering. Through this employee self-service feature, managers can allow employees to edit or update certain information, like their home address or their emergency contact numbers. In this way, changes can be updated immediately, and will no longer be in a long queue for approval.
It is up to the human resources managers as to which types of information can be edited by employees on their own. Generally, addresses and contact numbers are among the pieces information that can be edited or updated using the employee self-service feature. Of course, changes made can be tracked so HR managers and personnel can monitor who last changed a certain piece of information, especially in counter-checking if such updated information is indeed accurate.
The employee self-service feature is certainly something useful. And BambooHR is proud to announce that its HR software package has this kind of feature, so users can start to leverage it.
