The world of HR software is vast and it can get complicated deciding what products and services your company really needs to succeed. You can’t afford to invest in software that won’t provide the solutions to your biggest issues like recruitment, retention, engagement, compliance and strategic planning. Arcoro offers anyone a Free HR Assessment precisely for that reason.
Arcoro’s Free HR Assessment involves having our qualified team members talk with you one-on-one to discuss your HR pain points and how different types of HR software can help solve them. Below are five questions our free HR Assessment can answer.
1. With so much competition, how can I make my employer brand more attractive to candidates?
Currently, companies are fighting to attract candidates while navigating a severe labor shortage along with a rising demand to fill positions. An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) can give companies an advantage over the competition. An ATS should provide a centralized and streamlined process for creating job requisitions, customization of job-specific questions and an out-of-the-box recruiting portal. These tools allow companies to put their best foot forward when trying to attract candidates. Your brand and culture are front and center, showing potential employees what you have to offer. An ATS can also widen your net by publishing job postings to leading national and niche boards and social media sites with just a couple of clicks. A modular ATS like Arcoro’s is also designed to automate compliance by helping you follow federal hiring regulations.
2. How can I develop a retention-focused onboarding plan?
Bringing new employees onboard is expensive but having them turnaround and leave right away costs even more. It has been estimated that turnover can cost employers about $4,000 in recruiting, hiring and training costs, not to mention any overtime paid to existing workers covering the workload. Onboarding software creates a great first impression for your company, setting up your new employee for success and boosting retention. Many of the new employee onboarding steps can be completed through workflows, such as user accounts, badge access, training and more. Arcoro’s Onboarding module allows new hires to complete their onboarding paperwork before creating a user profile with kiosk software. For new hires without a home computer or smart device, Kiosk Mode offers another fast way to get started.
3. Are there gaps in my training programs?
An employee with access to learning and development has increased job satisfaction, improved performance and enhanced employee experience. According to SHRM, employee development is almost universally recognized as a strategic tool for an organization’s continuing growth, productivity and ability to retain valuable employees. A great training program will help organizations identify any skills gaps. With a tight labor market, it’s more important than ever to find the right people to fill needed roles. The first step in doing this is knowing who you already have in place, their skill sets and certifications. Arcoro’s Learning Management System (LMS) tracks completions and gives companies the ability to upload customizable learning plans while also providing online content, covering all of your training bases.
4. What reports should I utilize for compliance purposes?
Whether it’s pre- or post-hiring, maintaining compliance is an absolute must. Companies that work with the federal government must abide by hiring practices that ensure an equal playing field. Arcoro’s ATS not only supports your Affirmative Action Program through job postings and back-end reporting. The candidate batching feature shows a selection of candidates based on your pre-screening questions, eliminating the potential need to report on hundreds of candidates. Post-hire compliance includes Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance. Arcoro’s Benefits Management module offers compliance aids, like the Affordable Care Act Compliance module. The software uses existing employee data to analyze benefits, compensation and demographics. Forms 1094 and 1095 are automatically generated and sent to the IRS and the employee. Arcoro’s LMS enables HR to provide and track training completions and certifications for compliance. Required training, like sexual harassment, can be assigned and accessed through the employee portal, 24/7. Courses on diversity and inclusion, OSHA regulations, safety, leadership, ethics and more help maintain training compliance.
5. Now that I’m saving time on paperwork, what strategic initiatives should I take on next?
One of the biggest advantages of adopting upgraded HR technologies is the amount of time they save your staff. According to a PWC survey, 44% of HR leaders say cloud-based HR technology increases efficiency and 35% say it reduces costs. Automating your HR processes, like recruiting, training and time tracking saves companies time and paper costs. With more time on their hands, the HR department has more resources to focus on the longer-term or “macro” activities like shaping organizational culture, providing a better employee experience, building a diverse and inclusive workforce and supporting organizational development.
If you need answers to any or all of the above questions, an HR assessment can provide you with the solutions. Arcoro’s team will talk to you about your company’s specific needs and explain which HR software products would work the best, all free of charge. You can take the information you receive from your Free HR Assessment and present it to your executive team, along with the reasons why this expense is necessary in the new year.
