Just Ask WebHR

Just ask WebHR

It is about time, that HR enters into newer more advanced territories. WebHR has been a “lucky star” to almost do things before the market catches up with it, introducing the latest trends and technologies at a rocket pace. The latest being its “Conversational UX”

WebHR has a more agile focus and is targeting consumers with precision now, it has a habit of engaging in rapid innovation and upgrades. That includes the use of Bots and AI to simulate a conversation, creating a co-worker or an assistant that deals with your day to day HR related tasks.

The revolution has carried WebHR on a wave of new discoveries and now, it not only uses the chat-bots but has ventured into merging HR with AI enabled devices, specially “Amazon Echo” using its virtual assistant Alexa, which acts as your personal HR buddy. This is the next big thing people have been waiting for, the much needed leap, specifically for start-ups and emerging businesses that cannot afford costly enterprise solutions or large teams to deal with HR. So, there is good news for them – WebHR is their savior and it opens up new avenues for them, assisting them to work smarter and faster.

This integration with Amazon’s Alexa is the first step as it wants to now interface with whatever, interconnected device or AI assistant you use, such as  Cortana, Siri or Google Home.  This would let your “Amazon Echo” or any device to enhance your workplace productivity by minimizing the time required by actual people to do the same task.

In the era of GIG economy, workforce comprises of all kinds of workers like full-time, contractors, part-time and free lancers, automation will probably bring relief to new businesses by reducing its costs and budgets, giving the HR team more space to focus on strategy to improve the quality of work, rather than wasting their time on menial tasks.

The leaders that want to blend in with the futuristic trends and technologies should look forward to incorporating tools like WebHR and promote a culture of ease and comfort leading to a fluid and smooth work flow. Lets embrace a positive change for the betterment of work culture around the globe.

When WebHR interfaces with Alexa, WebHR becomes the new assistant that not only answers your HR related queries but will also help you with tasks, such as, “Mark my attendance,” “I am going for lunch” “schedule a meeting”, “apply for sick leave”, “email me my pay stub ” etc. So when you  implement AI in WebHR you open up a completely new perspective into your HR data by engaging in a conversation and asking for information from the system, such as “How many female employees we have? ” “who is present today?”, “Give me last year’s employee retention rate”, “Give me performance evaluation reports” etc.

The top management may immensely benefit by having a quick access to their workforce data by analyzing/crunching key HR matrices such as, employee retention rate, employee turn over, payroll summary, head count (headcount by category, nationality, gender, age range etc). This helps bridge the gap between the management and HR data by allowing rapid reach to important decision making data and reports required to accelerate growth and prosperity of the company. This is bringing the spark back into your boring HR routines by quitting multiple apps to get your HR related work done, talk to “Alexa” and get what you want in a simple more natural language.

Not only would you enjoy this new way of dealing with your software but it would make a heck of a difference in the way you can actually summarize and smartly utilize your time with just a few sentences. There is no screen, no stress and no manager to deal with. On a lighter note, you don’t have to worry about your manager getting sick or taking a day off, or being late to a critical meeting. Alexa kind of takes care of that part by being available at all times.

What’s better than a chat bot? A physical device, a portable “physical device”. Think about the immense benefit it can provide to companies short on funds and a mere $49.99 of one time investment into buying Amazon Echo, can eliminate the need for elaborate HR teams. The purpose is to automate what can be and create a “yes-man HR manager” you can easily talk to.

With a continues hype around connectivity of these devices as the trend continues, WebHR surfaces as the first company ever, to have entered and bring a much needed innovation to the HR world. This is a huge untapped potential and an opportunity which a lot of companies are unfortunately missing out on.

Since WebHR supports more than 20 languages, imagine what relief it is going to be on a global scale, when on the far corners of the world where English is not a native language and this provides them a platform of natural communication with their system to get the work done efficiently without the barriers erected by language. An object placed at every desk, conversing with you in your language and performing tasks, that would otherwise have required a lot of time for completion.

It can proudly be claimed that WebHR is an undisputed “pioneer” and has brought disruption to the HR industry because along with its claim of bringing an affordable corporate structured HR service, it is now also the first one to have gone a step further and has introduced HR services through AI enabled devices. It has unlocked a hidden potential of providing a hands-free work environment which is a bliss for company heads and top managers.

We are thrilled to offer this “hands-free” work environment related to HR to companies of all sizes and structures, since WebHR is more like an “Uber” of the HR industry and has set new norms by re-writing the rule book. “The bar for excellence has been raised”.

Stepping Up Employee Engagement

poster_employeesengagement

What does it take to have a dedicated, motivated and hardworking team that supports the very columns of your company ?

The answer is simple but technically the most difficult to achieve. “The Employee Engagement” – creating  a culture and understanding throughout the organization to uplift and equip your best talent.

How to reach that Nirvana?  The place where it is all hunky dory, with rainbows, unicorns and glitters, where there is an environment of motivation and success fueled by achievers and go-getters reaching far beyond their goals. The place where employees get a sense of ownership and responsibility, where gratitude turns into success of the organization as a whole.

The honest truth remains on a more obvious approach towards transparency and mutual trust, without creating a co-dependency. The process of liberating the employees, where checks and balances do not jump far off the fence and undermine their capabilities but rather enhance their existing skills.

Having said that, it reminds us to nurture a constant mechanism of feedback and learning where the communications are focused and bring out the desired outcome. The ” performance evaluation ” as the term goes is also entering into a completely new territory and is of a less judgmental sort and more of a learning and development activity. The solution lies in listening, observing and measuring how to create a symbiotic environment  between all tiers of the organization, displaying the best features offered by those employees.

The DNA OF A Successfully Engaged Team 

 

If the motives are always weighed as collectively, rather than individually and benefits are portrayed as a shared “success”, it will provide enough incentives to perform brilliantly and bring forth an energized and charged atmosphere, improving the workplace ambiance.  The purpose of boosted self-esteem can result in a constructive achievement of objectives. “The learn and develop” mantra can help groom the team for future challenges and teach them to co-operate at all levels and stages of the projects. A mechanism that is well oiled and working in coherence. The system where concerns don’t come out as arguments and promises of rewards don’t stay empty promises. I cannot stress enough on this, that employees are the company’s best ambassadors and represent the face of the company, so their well-being and prosperity is a company’s well-being and prosperity. They would not only promote and glorify the company’s motto but also deal with the clients more efficiently, binding them into a long term beneficial business relationship.

Small gestures and appreciation go a long way, a happy and emotionally stable employee would be more creative and would work faster, overcoming all glitches and improvising where hurdles come. Companies relying on constant innovation can benefit immensely from employees which stay tuned and focused rather than the employee who couldn’t think beyond working from paycheck to paycheck.

The more engaged the team at work is, the more chances of productive days and less absences and sick leaves. Employees get engaged where there is room for thought, consideration and realization. A workplace where culture, traditions and values are taken care of become the examples other would like to follow. If this scenario is achieved, an atmosphere is set for visionaries to be born and incubated to fill in the shoes of the leaders passing on this legacy.

The Deal Breakers

An array of behaviors, ranging from being over powering to being super-bossy might scare people and the term, keeping them “in-line” loses its importance. It is morally unjustified to keep employees tied up in errands that undermines their personal growth and engages them in an unpleasant, burdened and mechanical way of working. An emotionally upset employee might not utter something against the employer but the productivity and loyalty would certainly decrease over a period of time. Any kind of manipulative behavior might come under abuse, a very cynical and sarcastic approach can tarnish the company’s image in a paramount fashion.

Pointing out employee’s faults publicly can cause a caustic background and would put the members of the company in an awkward relationship with each other. Disappointment and resentment can never lead to a team that works towards the prosperity, as employees need a balanced leadership to guide them through different phases of the job cycles. Maturity and responsibility comes with setting examples that can be followed and adopted. Public ridiculing and humiliation are two zones, that if entered or ventured into might lead into the destruction of the very structure of the company. The only sensible way is to calmly work on the things that work and then encourage the employees to expand their skill sets.

Working with weaker parts of the team all the way up to the strengths and then letting them build the foundations of mutual association and team spirit to guide them through ups and downs of a company. These are the very basics of self-sufficient teams that can work independently.

The essential point that centralizes a gentle and understanding leadership to focus on building and strengthening the basic structure of the company is the “mainstay agenda” towards effective employee engagement.
