According to McKinsey, 56% of all the tasks in the HR department can be automated with existing technology.

Fast-growing startups mean growing administrative & HR processes.

Many businesses unknowingly create ‘high effort, low efficiency’ tasks for their HR teams by using manual methods in processes like employee recruitment, onboarding, data maintenance, payroll, and compliance filings. 

We’re talking about the below scenarios:

  • The HR department receives applications during hiring. Then, they contact candidates through email or phone for a job interview. There’s a whole lot of ‘email to-and-fro’ 
  • During employee onboarding, the HR team collects essential employee details like PAN, address, bank account details, etc., as printouts or attachments in emails 
  • After employee onboarding, the HR team manually calculates net salaries after deductions and payroll compliances on spreadsheets
  • Further, there are manual compliance filings like PF, PT, TDS, etc., on various portals

At the end of the process, there are countless papers to be managed, stick-on notes lying on the floor, folders and Excel sheets to be updated with new employee information, salary calculation and whatnot. 

The whole process is disintegrated, cumbersome and error-prone! Not to say, a dreadful experience for HR.

It also takes HR focus away from strategic tasks such as building better employee experience & work culture through learning & development, employee wellness programs, and workplace policy awareness initiatives.

According to an exclusive Neobanking report for SMEs in India, businesses lose about 113 hours per year and Rs. 4.5 lakhs in just the payroll process alone due to old, traditional systems.

Well, the good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way!
