Companies need personalized and efficient automated HR solutions that work as hard and as creatively as they do. They are looking for an innovative HCM solution that meets their requirements and scalability factors, while also helping to increase employee engagement in all levels of their business.

They need the ability to seamlessly connect their critical data to many different areas of business operations either internally or externally to 3rd party vendors. They need an HCM platform that removes unnecessary human error, automates the tasks that were once manual, encapsulates all data in one single-source and gives organizations the return on investment they are expecting with the time and money they put into implementing the technology.

A powerful HCM Platform utilizes HR cloud software to oversee all human resource tasks such as:

  • Payroll processing
  • Recruiting and applicant tracking
  • Employee onboarding
  • Performance management and feedback delivery
  • Delivering online training
  • Benefits Management
  • ACA Compliance
  • Core HR
  • Time and Attendance
  • Enabling companies to work more confidently towards business objectives
  • Increasing employee engagement

Let’s talk about the three ways an automated HCM platform helps a company by increasing employee engagement.

Creating a Productive Work Environment

What makes an organization a great place to work? What makes it successful?

Easy — it’s the very people employed by the company.

The level in which employees engage with and recognize the goals of an organization can determine business results as well as whether those results succeed or fail. There are many ways to increase employee engagement, but how do you achieve it? A flexible and configurable HCM that empowers employees and generates a productive environment can certainly help with this.


Lack of communication within a company makes employees frustrated. For example, how can they move forward with their work in a timely manner if they’re stuck not understanding how to sign up for their benefits during Open Enrollment?

A centralized, cloud-based HCM platform streamlines communications and enables business processes that promotes increasing employee engagement. Through open communication, employees stay connected to company objectives, are developing their skills and understand what is needed to reach their goals. Better communication established between employees, management, human resources and leadership allows everyone to share information and resources amongst each other seamlessly that they need in order to be successful in their jobs.

Mobile Access

Employees want the opportunity to work remotely without being tied to the physical workplace. A cloud-based, HCM platform enables employees and managers to work from anywhere and have access to information at any time. For example, an applicant for a job can complete their application online with a few quick and easy steps. Or after they have been hired, they can sign into their Employee Portal, via any mobile device, to check how much PTO they have remaining at any given time. An HCM platform allows you to stay connected regardless of location, all while boosting employee engagement and productivity.

Employee Working Remotely

Employee Self-Service (Portal)

Creating a more engaged and satisfied workforce starts by giving them access to the information that matters most to them. With an Employee Portal available, everyone in an organization will have access to:

  • PTO and sick leave balances
  • Benefits statements
  • Clocking in/out
  • Expense reports
  • Paystubs and more
