Businesses turn to automation to streamline HR processes

DUBAI, March 20, 2023

Many businesses in the UAE are implementing HR software technology to boost efficiency and productivity, says Connect Group. 
Connect’s HR software is designed to automate and streamline HR and payroll, allowing companies to easily manage the entire employee lifecycle from pre-boarding to offboarding within a single, powerful and easy-to-use automated system. It offers positive touch points for employee services, offering a win-win scenario for both the workforce and the organisation. 
“Competition is fierce in the talent market. Culture is critical and having a strong employer brand is imperative. HR departments need to be freed up to reexamine how they recruit, onboard and retain their talent without being hamstrung by tedious processes like managing annual leave and payroll. 
“We are happy to report that Connect HR has witnessed a 93% increase in clients over the past year, as more businesses turn to automated solutions to streamline their HR processes and boost efficiency,” says Aaron Portero, Managing Director of Connect Group. 
Host of features
Connect HR’s platform also includes features to assist with employee management, automate visa process management, performance management, expense claim, annual leave, time attendance and much more. It eliminates manual and repetitive HR tasks through powerful automation, data centralisation, and process streamlining, allowing team members to focus on other tasks. 
HR departments can often become inundated with team requests for policies, annual leave forms or payslips. Connect HR acts as a self-service platform for employees with easy access to HR documents. From company policies and resources and benefits information, so employees know exactly where to look for answers to their questions. They can connect with colleagues, request time off, enroll in benefits, and check payslips from their laptops and mobile devices without contacting HR. 
The platform also acts as a central hub for HR updates where the team can post announcements, recognise outstanding employees and share updates. In turn this can boost employee engagement by acknowledging employee birthdays, start dates, and work anniversaries.
Strategic decisions at one’s fingertips 
By storing all one’s company and employee data in one place, leaders can get a more holistic view of their organisation and better identify areas for improvement. 
Aside from payroll and benefits, HR software typically offers powerful integrations with other point solutions to move data seamlessly between systems. Using your HR data through consistent reporting not only helps one’s company achieve its business goals but also empowers you to make more informed decisions and prove impact.
Future of Connect HR 
To further enhance the user experience, Connect Group is introducing several new features, including an AI Virtual Assistant for the ESS portal, multi-language support, a people analytics reporting tool, and a new UI with added dashboards. These enhancements will enable Connect HR to expand its reach in GCC and African markets and continue to be a leading HR software platform.
The surging demand for HR automation underscores the critical role of HR in businesses today. Connect Group is proud to be at the forefront of this trend and remains committed to helping businesses streamline their HR processes and improve employee engagement.-- TradeArabia News Service
