Behind every successful business is an effective Human Resource department. They ensure that your goals are reached by engaging your company’s most important asset – your People!
The HR staff is responsible for hiring the right candidate, managing employee details, tracking time, handling employee benefits, measuring employee performance and much much more. If you run a small or medium sized business, the use of an HR software for these activities might seem expensive. In reality, it’s not!
Automating your HR can help you save time and money in a lot of ways.
1. Make your first impression count
Recent research indicates that an employee decides to stay or leave an organization in the first 90 days. In Fortune 500 companies alone it has been estimated that close to 50% of the outside hires quit in less than 2 years.
Onboarding ensures minimal attrition. However, it includes many forms, induction programs, salary contracts, IT system allocations and new hire training. With automation, you can structure workflows to trigger multiple actions. For instance, automatically send out requests for IT equipment, ID cards and provide employees access to directly add or edit their personal data. This streamlines new hire onboarding and reduces the time taken to induct a new employee.

Would it not be wonderful if the implementation between a payment processor and an accounting software were such that you can monitor deposits and refunds, get a clear picture of the processing fees, how much the gateway owes you and above all, how much actual money you’ve got – all at one place!
Jinx! That’s exactly what we thought! And that’s exactly what we’ve done.

Before we can reach our terminus of enlightenment for the “ultimate candidate experience,” our pilgrimage requires a pit-stop in the land of the bad, the depraved and the nefarious. Here we will leap into the turbulent waters of long and complicated job applications, and pore over characteristics of candidate experiences so awful that people spread the word like tent-revival evangelists.
Don’t worry, we won’t stay here long. No, our final destination is far from this land.
Our purpose here is simple. In order to overhaul the way candidates interact with your company, you must first understand what a great candidate experience is NOT. This means examining the recruiting process through an applicant’s eyes and thinking about his or her experience above everything else.
Measuring and understanding how engaged your website visitors are is key to increasing sales conversions. I’m sure you audit visitor engagement through a monthly website analytics report. But that still gives you only data from the past, not actionable insights in real-time.

After we released Zoho Social last month, I’ve been talking to a lot of customers, replying to love and hate emails, helping them set up their accounts and what not. It’s fun helping small businesses get better at social media marketing!
Last weekend, I was looking forward to meeting someone at my favorite cafe. No, this wasn’t about work. It was about food! A young entrepreneur who started a food-delivery business right after he graduated got in touch with me over Twitter. He said he was meeting some foodies in the city over the last couple of weeks and wanted to meet me to talk about my favorite food joints in the city. Well, that tells you a thing or two about me. 😉
