The retail industry is one that poses a host of entirely unique challenges when it comes to HR and payroll solutions. Challenges in the retail industry include constant changes in staffing requirements, high turnover, scheduling requirements, tracking and seasonal variations to name but a few and finding a comprehensive, one-stop HR and payroll solution to handle all of these factors can be tricky.
By taking the time to source and invest in quality HR software, you will get to experience a host of benefits in your retail business. By reducing data errors and payroll fraud, as well as having the necessary tools to manage your talent, you will see your business take off through organisation and efficiency.
Five benefits offered by HR software solutions
- High turnover rates. This means loads of HR data. With a comprehensive payroll software solution, you will be able to keep track of employee time and attendance data so that it is instantly available for evaluation. The termination and rehire process will be simplified, which helps with the seasonal hire issues that are unique to the retail industry.
- Attendance and Tracking. The retail industry often comes hand in hand with a geographically dispersed environment. With effective human resources solutions, you will have the ability to track attendance rules such as overtime, shift differentials, absences and accruals to name just a few.
- Employee self-service. Workers in retail need to be mobile and cannot afford to be desk-bound. Comprehensive payroll software will give employees the option of self-service and give them access to necessary features such as online payslips.
- Talent retain and management. When the time is taken to train and develop staff in an attempt to retain them, you can cut your staff turnover down, save money and time and benefit from a workforce with skills that have been honed and defined.
- Business expansion. Expanding your retail business can pose a number of HR and payroll problems, but with comprehensive solutions, expansion can be a much smoother process as you will have a better handle on issues such as regional salary differences, employment contracts and staff turnover.
