Businesses Utilizing Cloud-Hosted HR and Payroll

Businesses Utilizing Cloud-Hosted HR and Payroll

Cloud computing can be used for many things, and nowhere is this more true than in the business environment. Organizations of all shapes and sizes use the cloud to keep operations moving forward. Some have even moved their entire human resources and payroll departments into the cloud. We’ll help you decide if this is the right approach for your organization.

There are mandates businesses must be aware of if they hope to maintain compliance, and HR functions as the connecting tissue that makes sure employees know and are in compliance with these regulations. If you are like many organizations that don’t have a dedicated HR department, there are options available that can help you manage these roles through dedicated cloud-based platforms; but first, let’s take a look at what the primary responsibilities of an HR department are. We have put together six of them:

  • Employee retention
  • Health and safety
  • Personnel
  • Payroll
  • Training and compliance
  • Employee management

Software developers have invested a considerable amount of time into building dynamic human resource software solutions that can make management much easier for small businesses. Some of these services even offer automation for HR directors to control many of their responsibilities in an easy-to-manage way. Here are some of the services this includes:

  • Human Resource Information System (HRIS)
  • Applicant Tracking System (ATS)
  • OnBoarding
  • Benefits Administration
  • Time and Compensation Management
  • Training Management Performance, and Recognition Management
  • HR Analytics
  • Wellness Management

It’s safe to say that the majority of today’s tools can accomplish most, if not all, of these tasks. It used to be common practice to host all the applications a human resources department would need on a single computer or network, but a truly hosted solution would include secure storage on servers managed by a provider. These services would also be accessible anywhere through an Internet connection, making them much more dynamic and flexible than your traditional in-house HR solution.

Human Resources as a Service
Like many services out there, HR as a Service (HRaaS) aims to create a fully outsourced solution to a problem that many businesses face. HRaaS aims to eliminate the need for an in-house HR staff by providing all the services and skills they require in one central location. The benefits of this include a significant cut in spending and resources traditionally needed to amass a human resources department on-site.

HRaaS can enable your business to eliminate significant costs associated with HR management. It can both standardize your HR processes and cut down on potential issues you might face through the traditional method, such as finding the right platform and hunting down the right people for the job.
