Manual HR Processes Hamper Effectiveness

HR professionals increasingly believe that inconsistent processes are negatively impacting efforts to advance people development strategies, according to research from eloomi.

New research from eloomi has shown that nearly a quarter of global HR professionals say that having too many manual processes is preventing them from implementing effective people management programmes within their organisation. The new report also finds that 23% of respondents feel that inconsistent processes and frameworks are negatively impacting efforts to roll out people development strategies.  

The growth of digital platforms has led to many organisational HR teams taking steps to improve access to the information they need. However, data shows that many professionals continue to wrestle with several systems to keep track of progress. In fact, 72% of respondents say they use various tools to track people’s development progress as part of their broader HR system, but only 38% say they have access to analytics and data.  

The reality is that many HR leaders continue to operate blindly when it comes to running effective people development strategies within their companies. Looking at a broader scale, this is contributing to employees feeling out of the loop, with more than half saying they still receive information via paperwork forms and revealing that they have very little access to information about one-on-one sessions with senior managers.  

Commenting on the findings, Andrew Mina, senior learning and development specialist at eloomi, says, “Without streamlined and cohesive people development strategies, organisations risk employee disengagement and decreased productivity. To address these issues, companies need to embrace digital solutions that automate and centralise HR processes. Integrated systems offering cohesive analytics and data visibility enable HR professionals to make informed decisions and track progress effectively.”
