Human Resource reporting is the key to operational efficiency

If businesses are to be at their most productive, managers and CEOs need access to accurate Human Resource reporting. Through HR reporting, CEOs are able access valuable information, including information about departmental budgets, salary reviews headcounts, attendance records and employee satisfaction reviews as well as information about employee appraisals and training. With access to this information, businesses are able to identify top performing employees and promote these candidates, while also identifying skills shortages that can be addresses through training. In this way, a company can ensure that its employees reach their full potential and derive satisfaction from their work. By keeping their workforce productive and satisfied, companies are able to achieve operational efficiency and also manage HR costs. Human resource reporting is also a valuable tool that allows CEOs to calculate the costs and implications of organisational restructuring. Human resource systems provide valuable analytics that help companies make more informed strategic decisions. HR reporting also makes it easier for a company to measure the success of its HR system, by monitoring absenteeism as well as employee satisfaction and retention. This information provides a good indication of whether HR policies need to be adjusted. Managers are also able to identify workforce trends and patterns by reviewing HR reports. This allows managers to be proactive when implementing workflow processes and organisational restructuring.

How Human Resource consultants can save you time and money

Many businesses are choosing to hire Human Resource Consultants instead of employing Human Resource Directors or fully fledged human resource departments. In this way, businesses are able to keep their HR costs down, while still benefiting from hiring someone with a deep understanding of human resource procedures and best practices. Human resource consultants can take care of complex HR functions including working out salary structures and producing annual workplace skills plans and training reports. Because human resource consultants tend to be experts within their field, they are also better able to benchmark a company’s HR policies based on current best practices. How HR consultants can save you time  HR consultants are able to save many businesses countless hours by advising them on how to automate many of their HR functions. This ensures that line managers and heads of departments no longer have to spend their valuable time on administrative functions. An HR consultant can also design new workflow processes that are focused on driving efficiency, ensuring your company is productive. How HR consultants can save you money  HR consultants can be hired on an ad-hoc basis or for a fixed number of hours a month. This allows businesses to keep their HR costs down, while still gaining access to a specialist’s expertise. Most businesses have realised the high cost of replacing staff and understand the benefit of keeping their employees happy. HR consultants are able to ensure job satisfaction and employee well being because they are experienced at developing fair HR policies and benefits programs, while also managing salary costs. By keeping their staff happy, businesses can avoid the costs of replacing and training staff. Regardless of whether your business needs an HR consultant on an ad hoc basis to assist you with reports and automating your processes, or whether you need a consultant on a regular basis to manage employee training and payroll, CRS can meet your needs.

Recruitment specialists help HR departments achieve BEE compliance

Many local companies rely on recruitment specialists to help them achieve Black Economic Empowerment (BBE) compliance. BEE aims to increase equity and empower black business owners, stakeholders and employees in South Africa. BEE compliance is regulated by BEE codes under the Department of Trade and Industry. Under BEE legislation, organs of state, public entities and all private enterprises that partner with a public entity are expected to comply with BEE codes. Businesses that wish to provide goods or services to BEE compliant companies also need to comply with BEE codes. There are a number of business advantages that come with being BEE compliant. These include tax incentives and financial grants awarded to BEE compliant companies as well being able to partner with public entities, through the provision of goods and services. Companies that are BEE compliant are also able to bid for government tenders and secure large contracts. How recruitment specialists can help you achieve BEE compliance  The current skills shortage in South Africa makes it difficult for companies to hire skilled professionals. However, recruitment companies are experienced at making placements across the board and at all skill levels. Recruitment companies focus on finding highly qualified professionals as one of their core functions and are therefore better able to find professionals for specialised placements. By hiring a recruitment company to find your skilled staff, you are able to cut recruitment costs and also save time. CRS Recruitment is a recruitment company with more than 30 years experience in the industry. When we recruit professionals, we screen and interview candidates and also perform credit and qualification verification checks. This saves our clients time and money when looking for skilled professionals. Our HR consultants can also help your company compile employee equity reports.

Five Benefits of outsourcing your Human Resources department

A growing number of small to medium enterprises in South Africa are outsourcing their Human Resources functions as a means to streamline their business functions while cutting costs. The payroll and human resource management functions of an SME can take up as much as 40% of a professional’s day. Often these functions are performed by the business manager, or by department heads. Many companies find it is simply not feasible to have highly skilled professionals spend this much of their time on activities that are neither core business functions, nor revenue generating. Understandably, small business owners are becoming increasingly frustrated with the amount of time and money that is spent on human resource functions. By choosing to outsource their HR departments, businesses can realise a range of business benefits, helping them gain a competitive advantage. Five benefits of HR outsourcing By outsourcing a company’s HR functions, businesses are able to relieve their managers of the administrative burden that comes with managing payroll, benefits, leave and compensation. Companies that outsource their HR functions are able to reduce costs. This is because HR consultants are often able to perform a company’s HR functions at a lower cost than is possible internally. By outsourcing HR functions, companies can also drive productivity by enabling skilled department heads and managers to get on with their business functions. Outsourcing human resource management also gives a company access to the expertise of an entire HR firm. For many SMEs, outsourcing their HR is the only way to gain expertise around legal and compliance HR issues, as well as best practices that ensure employee happiness. Because HR firms specialise at managing HR functions, businesses that outsource their HR and payroll functions are able to benefit from superior HR systems that rely on the latest technologies and are managed by HR experts.
