Every employer aspires to keep their employees engaged and empower them by providing the best-in-class work environment.
That’s why HR teams (and more specifically in start-ups) should focus on developing and managing talents by automating HR processes.
Let’s take a look at what they can change to minimise employee turnover and improve employee engagement.
1. Set Up Efficient Communication Channels
Most start-ups work with millennials who look forward to a workplace where they are involved in the decision-making process.
In fact, they appreciate when the management team seeks their opinion. To facilitate communication within the company, use channels like Mattermost (free) or Slack.
To guarantee efficient communication, consider cloud-based software such as Beekeeper, Bitrix24 or Zoho Cliq. These platforms are affordable and let you keep all HR-related data in one place securely.
The platforms can be used by employees to send requests, feedback, monitor working hours, apply for leave, and view pay slips.
Most younger employees are tech-savvy and prefer looking up information online!
2. Smart Recruitment
Leverage digital tools to match open positions with potential employees to strengthen the selection process.
We know recruiting is a time-consuming process.
A small-sized business needs to count on new technology to save on time and effort.
3. Payroll Tracking System
Salary is the reason people work in the first place.
Technology can be used not just to to monitor and calculate salary, but also to adjust employee tasks, social security payments, and bonuses.
4. Measure Employees’ Performance
Use of big data has impacted many aspects of business including tracking and measuring employee performance.
Systems process employees’ performance and current achievements to help you come up with a personalised training plan for everyone in your company.
5. Feedback Systems
By using a feedback system where employees fill out surveys, you will be able to gather important data needed for improving the company culture.
This facilitates strong employer branding, which eventually helps attract top talent into the organisation.
6. Team Management Tools
One of the perks of using HRTech is to make business operations easier.
Most of the tools have many built-in features like real-time messaging, search, task management, and deadline alerts.
It helps HR teams keep an eye on the work progress and current achievements.
The most popular team management tools used by numerous start-ups include Asana, Trello, BetterWorks, and Slack.
When your business is in the start-up stage, it’s important to pay attention to every aspect of business, more specifically, to ensure high people satisfaction and high levels of engagement.
