It, therefore, should have the best tools and platforms to enable them to do their job meticulously and to the best of their ability. There are several tools that can help the HR team; it just depends on what they need it for. Subscribing to more than one is also a valid option to give you and your team the most help they can get to run your business smoothly. Below are some of the platforms that your HR team absolutely needs to try.

Zenefits is more specific than other HR management tools or companies. This tool helps with your employees’ payroll and helps you keep track of your finances.

WebHR may be one of the most popular digital HR platforms available worldwide. Their slogan is “from hire to retire in the most advanced way!” and are solely a cloud-based social HR software. Their website has numerous videos and articles that show you how to take advantage of the software to its fullest extent. It also shows what the platform integrates with, including companies such as Google, Microsoft, DropBox, Uber, Google Drive, and many others., which stands for Process Street, is a workflow management tool to help your HR team with recurring checklists and procedures. Instead of your team having to do spreadsheets each month or week, does these for your company automatically, and all you have to do is input the numbers if need be. Credit cards are not required, but they do ask for the name of your website to be able to research it carefully and create a plan that will suit your business the most.

Zoho People

Of all the mentioned platforms, Zoho People is one of the most applicable ones in most, if not all, countries. Their platform is translated in many languages and opens up to the suitable language of the country your IP is from. Their main goal, as they state on their website, is “we take care of your HR processes while you take care of your employees.” They are more hands-on than the rest and act as HR managers rather than the website being merely a tool for your HR team to use.

Before you choose a platform or several, be sure that your budget will be able to cover them for as long as you will need them. Also, and more importantly, research each platform thoroughly and read reviews on them. Some platforms may seem incredibly useful, but in reality, will not help your particular business. 

Understand your goals and lay out what your objectives are for your employees and the trajectory which you want them to continue on. Some of these platforms work best, especially if you are operating in the same location and some work everywhere, so email them to know if they will suit your business as well or not. Finally, acknowledge your HR team’s strengths and weaknesses and which platforms will help enhance their ability to work efficiently and smoothly.
