Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) Help Business More Than You May Think
The facts are in: Businesses are finding it harder than ever to locate, recruit, and keep skilled employees, which is why Gartner predicts that the skills gap will lead to business disruption in 75% of businesses by 2020. With numbers like that, it’s clear that now, more than ever, it’s important for small and midsized businesses to fully utilize the limited staff and resources they have.
Yet, unfortunately, the task of utilizing those resources falls squarely on the shoulders of human resources professionals.
Luckily, you have help.
Reality vs. Requirements: An HR Dilemma
As a Human Resources manager, you have all your job duties and goals… and then you have reality. Sure, you may have a long To Do list, all of which needs to be accomplished yesterday, but in reality, you don’t have the time to complete that task list because you spend a lot of time on administrative processes.
Consider: How much of your time do you spend on paperwork? How much time do you spend simply processing employee information, answering questions, and manually entering data from forms?
You may be surprised to learn that research from the Center of Effective Organizations tells us that, on average, over 50% of a human resources department’s time is used up by performing two basic tasks: processing information and answering questions.
As these tasks will only continue to grow as the company grows, finding a high-performing Human Resources Management System (HRMS) will become increasingly important as time marches forward. But what is HRMS and how can it help bridge the gap between time and tasks?

What Is HRMS?
The duties of a Human Resources manager are incredibly vast and time consuming. In fact, most Human Resources managers were already stretched thin before the skills gap made their job harder – there’s always been too much to do in HR.
An HRMS provides your Human Resources department with an integrated software solution for managing your organization’s workforce. A well-planned and integrated HRMS can help you:
- Reduce routine administrative paperwork
Through a combination of automation and other features, an HRMS is designed to help eliminate a large portion of the routine paperwork that goes along with the human resources job.
- Manage benefits with greater ease
If your company offers multiple benefits, then your Human Resources department is probably spending a considerable amount of time on routine benefits administration. An HRMS has the ability to simplify the process and improve efficiency and accuracy.
- Easily create accurate, timely reporting and analysis
With the functionality of a well-integrated HRMS, you can easily get the in-depth reports you need for data-driven decision making, so you can hire smarter, retain employees longer, and fully utilize your talent resources.
- Process payroll
Okay, maybe you don’t personally handle payroll and are not personally responsible for it. However, if something goes wrong, there is no doubt that HR will need to be involved. That’s why one of the main features of a good HRMS is integrated payroll functionality.
HRMS: A Real Solution for the Coming Skills Gap
