The coming years, would be the years of evolution and change for HR. The way we manage people has come a long way, there is an ever changing scenario, when it comes to how a company advertises, recruits, engages and evaluates employees. There was a huge gap between the corporate outlook and the way SMBs see things a few years ago, along with distinct differences between the ways to deal with their respective workers, which seem to have been merging now and the new ideology tells us that every company, large or small needs to quantify and gauge the employee experience and retain their best talent, not just recruit them.
All that glitters is not gold and not all expensive software ensure the quality of services provided. The true demographics of companies all over the world, according to a research done by the analysts at WebHR, tell us a surprising story, there is a huge demand for an All-in-One HCM suite not just for smaller companies but also larger corporations, that tend to burn a whole lot of money on software systems, that are hard to deploy, provide little value compared to the amount spent on them or have an extremely complicated learning curve. What the team at WebHR has found out is that, it doesn’t matter how pricy the software in place, if it fails at basic functionality and doesn’t provide an ease of use for the user, it becomes a burden on the company.
The next generation of software tend to be smarter, precise and more vigilant about the customer requirements, have shorter life cycles for necessary updates essential to make the workflows smoother, make more customization to cater and adjust to different workflows. The newer tools focus on customer queries, their worries and concerns and provide them support free of cost to equip them with a better understanding of the software, helping them use it at its maximum potential. The evolutionary process wants these systems to incorporate more social aspect tools, that keep the teams engaged, performing up to their mark, meet targets and then evaluated more responsibly and fairly. Companies need to make sure that their spending is justified and they get ease of using a software that covers most aspects related to HR and goes an extra mile.
The rapid innovation onset round the globe, accounts for an increased level of automation and intelligent analysis of data to bring out more productivity, that is where the team WebHR understands that AI and data analytics can be a game changer. The use of certain physical devices to extract data, without actually doing any manual work, like Amazon’s Alexa, acting as an HR manager. These are the facts that are changing the way HR looks and feels. The meetings from different ends of the world, done virtually in a conference room with just a VR headset, that works with WebHR. This is just a fraction of what the team at WebHR is planning to do in this space.
The step forward is not just all that innovation but also to meet the human end of it and improve it manifold. The evaluations, as we see it today are based on old tactics and sometimes do not turn out to be beneficial in any substantial change in an employee;s career or pathway. To bring valuable and significant change, is not to bring out a feedback that is not reflective of employees day to day activities but more directed towards an overall achievement designed to highlight those certain phases where they completed a project and showed their best capabilities, with elated sense of team spirit. If we look into the life cycles of startup, that continually go through different phases of development, their employees go from the very basic in skills set to becoming an integral part of the team, where everyone works as a cohesive and combined force, having a larger success rate of getting things done effectively. The level of persistence and organizational development depends on the level of engagement amongst the employees and the focused objectives to do better by adapting skills at work and utilizing them effectively.
Today’s employees have entered an era of competition, where people grab opportunities faster and are ready to take on career paths, that are challenging and demand a constant process of learning, with that said, finding that talent has become more convenient through tools like “WebHR”, as WebHR helps creating a brand recognition for the company and help them spread good vibes about them, putting forth their mission towards acquiring and retaining the best suitable candidates for their businesses. This not just brings out the companies as specific “brands” but also ensure that their integrity, is the main focus during the process.
The latest wave of showdowns for the leaders in the upper-most tiers of the company and their deeds being highlighted on social media, means surrounding the company culture. No company big or small, can survive on brand names alone, it is imperative to build a culture of trust and understanding as portrayed by the CEO of the company itself. Nothing stays inside a company’s board room, or no misconduct can be brushed under the carpet these days. A better management, is a connected, honest and culture reflective management. A culture where all employees have an equal opportunity to grow and get promoted to the positions they deserve. The mechanism of sharing and appreciating efforts put in by every member of the team, with very visual tokens of appreciations, like “employee of the month”, “high achievers”, badges, that make their day and boost their ego, making them feel involved and engaged at all times.
The team at WebHR has experimented and tested different ways of bringing a social aspect to HR and uplift its current role, moving it towards a platform that provides, connectivity and sense of tribe building amongst the employees. Improving the mental well-being of even the most introverted of the employees in the company by giving them a chance to mingle with all the tiers in the company. The team at WebHR has noticed that it bridges the gap between older and younger employees, creating a unique mechanism of learning, where millennials seek wisdom and advice from older, more experienced ones.
WebHR’s team has always been innovating the ways we deal with our most valuable assets ” our employees”, the team holds this notion highly, that an overall success at any company is directly related to the well-being of their employees. They are not just a tool to get a better ranking but also an essential and integral basis of how a company builds its image from the ground up and be known for that. The modern day companies want more, they want fast, effective and affordable ways of doing things and larger corporations have realized the same thing. The coming year would be the year when affordable HR tools break their way into companies of all sizes and categories. The need has been identified and the change is imminent.
The need to collaborate, be acknowledged, to help, to uplift and to assist each other in a team is as natural as breathing. To feel and be a part of a connected framework, is a primary need that brings a sense of belonging amongst people who work together, building mutual aims and ambitions. This primal desire of being connected has been met in the modern age through cloud computing and mobile networks.
WebHR has been a staunch supporter of going social from the beginning, even when the concept was unheard of and called themselves an All-in-one Social HR, pioneering the concept of highly engaged teams. The high-tech social dashboards on an HR software are a sight to be delighted. They bring the people working in a company closer and engaged in many ways and at many levels. The team motivation helps people perform at their highest potential, bringing a surge in company profits and improving revenues. The open work spaces are best examples of the collaborative teams, a very sought after, “must have” trait for the millennials. In the modern day offices employees want to associate themselves to a part of culture that speaks their language, their codes and behaviors, a true representation of most of the young and fast growing tech empires of the world; including the king of all “Facebook”. Their success story is based on Global connectivity and that is what modern day work spaces need the most.
WebHR not just looks, feels and acts like Facebook, its highly advanced AI capabilities bring it closer to the fact that it is the “only software” out there to do things unconventionally, bringing a sense of ease and fun, while doing a boring and repetitive job of performing the HR tasks day in and day out. The complicated work flows are simplified for more accurate results. It has all the glory of Facebook fun, seriousness of the most sophisticated HCM suites and technology of the future to make it unique in every aspect.
The clients feedback provides fodder to its self-esteem, WebHR has been told by some of the very well known companies in the world, that they spent millions of dollars in search of a suitable mechanism that they can adapt to and merge with their ecosystems for more productivity and failed at it, until they switched to WebHR. They hinted that the functionalities were far superior in comparison and it saved them immense time and money to manage their employees as compared to systems that took months to implement with complicated workflows, with little to no ease in learning curves. This young and promising company thrives on such feedback, it lives to accomplish this motto and provide the best practices for people and their companies, spreading a sense of comfort and ease all these social tools bring to your lives.
From the moment someone logs into WebHR, they are taken to a dynamic and a beautifully crafted dashboard. This dashboard allows the employees to update their statuses, post photos, videos, wish each other over the holidays, post birthday greetings, welcome new employees, announce something or share motivational content. They can share informative videos, creating a process of learning and employers can give badges to reward and appreciate the employees, boosting their Morales. There is a new chat messenger feature that allows all online employees using their WebHR accounts, to engage in a conversation with each other, keeping a log of their previous chats, so that they can catch up on their conversations in case they have logged out of the system. There is also a personal task widget with animated icons, to help create personal deadlines and a To-Do list in a fun way. The company news feed looks like Facebook and helps employees stay updated with the company timeline and its events like, company news, birthdays, lunches etc. All this exercise keeps them off their other devices, gently eradicating unnecessary distractions and their need to rely on them as a tool for communication within the company. This highly dynamic platform also provides a conference room, discussion forums, polls and surveys that creates essential recorded data for business intelligence.
Employees through the history of workplaces have been subjected to harsh and unproductive work environments, where employers thought that the only engaging tool was to pay them well. As it has been proved over a course of time that, it is not true, employee wellness and performance improves with appreciation, rewards and acknowledgement. A collaborative work environment that encourages team spirit is more supportive and well perceived. WebHR has played its role in the modern day HR industry by initiating this positive thought process, creating a well informed circle of employees that acts as a tightly knit community, which is not distracted but more encouraged to perform well by not competing with its peers but upgrading themselves to a better level and stage gradually. This process not just brings value but also forms a culture of symbiotic benefits, that have a chain effect on the progress of a company as a whole.
The video chat feature in WebHR also eliminates the need for external software to jump in and fulfill that requirement, reducing the costs allocated for such tasks, conveniently bringing it all under one platform, saving a ton load of hassle to constantly stay on a switch mode. This level of engagement and connectivity brings forth teams that perform well in a Global setting as well. A well coherent inter-relational mechanism of all departments working in harmony, allowing customers to connect to support teams, support teams to tech teams, tech teams to collaborate with customer success, giving space to the R&D teams to build and research cutting edge technologies that are in turn tested and launched by separate teams. This fuels a funnel of inter-dependent and yet fully functional units at work that uplift and compliment each other, portraying the values of a company.
This smart ecosystem gives birth to the concept of “we” rather than individuals working in personal capacities, forming personalities and characteristics of employees that tend to belong to “teams” and groups who collectively get appreciated and rewarded for accomplishing tasks done by helping each other out. This produces remarkable outcome when done in such a fashion, that it automatically highlights high-performers and alpha roles, that hardly ever crumble under pressure, solving problems at a rapid pace. WebHR’s social engaging tools form community of employees at work, that have an unwavering dedication towards team mission, they are go-getters, who believe in working with diverse teams, achieving goals faster, efficiently and more responsibly than others.
The concept of a “fun” and “sassy” workplace brings more engagement and happiness, creating positive thinkers who in turn become high achievers. A fun workplace also accounts for an evident sense of happiness, creating positive vibes and outcomes. WebHR envisions the true image of practical connectivity and is considered as the “Facebook” of the work-world. The vision it embodies is the representation of a futuristic digital HR, that is part and parcel of a much needed HR transformation. WebHR’s future connected employees symbolize all the traits like goal oriented, fast communicators, information sharers, leaders and performers merged together. These are the people who always stay ahead of the learning curve.

WebHR’s has also been named as the one of the only useful HR app on Amazon Alexa, was a launch partner for Microsoft’s Cortana device “Invoke ” which also supports WebHR. The advancements in the field of HR using AI has again been the reason WebHR is one of the most innovative HR firm and is a pioneer in doing things way before the rest. It is also destined to be the one of the only Global Payroll provider, along with everything required to manage your people, bringing an All-in-One HR that meets demands before they are created.
WebHR wishes to improve the office lives by bringing teams at work closer and by making people management simpler and faster.
WebHR is announcing a major step in the HR industry by becoming a modern payroll provider. So, alongside streamlining the core HR functionalities, WebHR enables a simplified payroll processing unit, taking into consideration all pain points and automating most processes, reducing the costs. WebHR has made its space in this industry and is considered a pioneer and a global leader that is destined to become a global payroll provider alongside an All-in-One HR portal.
WebHR defines and implements the modern day advanced technologies, that are much needed to automate the processes for HR. WebHR’s value addition is designed for economic benefits for all sizes of companies, a universal approach towards the future of workplace, that enhances the business and upgrades the team ethics, creating a connected and tightly knit network of employees. It focuses on goals and collaboration at all levels, creating a cohesive workforce and promoting the company culture. WebHR’s cloud based global solution targets at becoming your one stop “go to” HR software, that goes beyond that defining term and provides you a social connectivity tool, that looks and feels like Facebook upon usage.
The ease that a cloud based payroll software adds is far greater, as the businesses can run and manage payroll from any where. WebHR allows all companies to efficiently pay all kinds of employees, be it full-time, part-time, contract and freelance. It allows companies to enjoy a seamless workflow, that automatically calculates how much the employees need need to be paid every pay period, by extracting data from its time and attendance module. WebHR makes it convenient for the companies to regulate work flows for different shifts, overtime, holidays pay taxes etc. It goes a step further and does the direct deposit, print checking or populating NACHA files. Along with filing payroll taxes, which includes withholding employee taxes, filing and then paying tax withholding to appropriate Federal and State agencies, it also issues W-2 and 1099 forms.
An employee self-service platform allows the HR mangers and teams to enable employees to view their pay stubs, PTO balances and a lot more. WebHR’s extensive reporting format allows the organizations to gather intelligent data related to payroll information in both graphical and tabular formats. With this modern cloud based payroll processing, companies can bring an end to their ordeal of doing things the archaic way, with low budgets dedicated towards payroll processing. Not only does that save time and money, it saves them valuable labor that can be put to better use, enhancing the growth spurt of a company. WebHR simplifies this critical task, so that days and hours worth of time can be reduced to a few clicks and done with in minutes, eliminating all glitches and blockages which are a usual part and parcel of these processes, causing an avoidable nuisance.
By incorporating WebHR’s online payroll processing, a very valuable labor time is saved and dedicated in-house payroll processing is avoided, cutting costs in general. A software like WebHR is more likely to comply with regulations and stay updated than an in-house payroll processing unit. HR is going under an immense re-modelling, as it is high time we re-think our ways with dealing with the most important asset in our companies ” our employees” and move towards a more dynamic approach towards tackling the common core pain points.
Like the widespread popularity of Amazon’s Echo and its interface with other physical electronics, businesses and apps with its assistant called “Alexa”, this is the year for Microsoft’s “Invoke” to enter into our lives. It has shattered all boundaries and with its highly superior AI ventured into everything we can imagine. With Microsoft’s extensive experience, in the field of AI and mixed reality, there is no doubt that Cortana will take this space to a new heights.
This year has been the most busiest at WebHR, we have announced huge game changing moves in the field of HR and are moving at rocket pace to get them done. For example, we were a proud and the only HR platform on Amazon Alexa’s skill this year and their Echo devices became “the HR managers” for an innovative workplace environment.
Having said that WebHR didn’t stop at that, as the fast pace of innovation is the mainstay themes of everything done at WebHR, Microsoft’s team reached out to WebHR and urged them into integrating with their “Cortana skills kit” just like we did with Amazon. Microsoft informed us of their intentions to launch a physical device empowered by Cortana. This is the glorious year when Microsoft has announced to go beyond mobile and desktop and spread it’s AI wings to their very first device “Invoke”
Invoke looks the same magnificent cylindrical shape as Amazon Echo but has a metallic Harmon Kardon speaker cabinet. Apart from its physical attributes and classy looks, it is determined to bring ease of automation to a large number of varied fields. That is where WebHR comes in, it shares a common goal and mission with Microsoft to bring AI and automation to workplace, to bring more interactive and connected teams, to challenge the past practices, to break the way offices work and to provide a pedestal of advancements improving the work culture. It shows the capability of WebHR and Cortana to get things moving faster not for just large and innovative corporations but also for small and medium enterprises.
Invoke goes beyond being an assistant, it collaborates with WebHR’s advanced integration platform and empowers the future trends of workplace. WebHR had the privilege to be at the Microsoft’s build conference 2017, which was larger than life in every possible way. WebHR was invited to be a part of their launch for their “Cortana powered device called Invoke” as their launch partners and was proud to be displayed as the very first and probably the only business app on their skill sets. This mighty beauty called Invoke can make your offices look like something from the future or more so like the movie “HER” where, you would be able to communicate with the devices and do most of the HR data analysis, this would be your Go-To manager by default.
As easy as it looks and feels like a seamless process, WebHR had to go over a multi-layered complex mechanism to attain this capability. ” It is a developer’s delight to work with Microsoft’s team” – something I hear my team saying constantly. They were always praising Microsoft’s prompt responses and unfaltering support at all times. The Cortana skills kit before going live was available to our developers in its infancy and it was an honor to have worked with them so early on for WebHR’s integration with “Invoke”. WebHR already had a background with Alexa, so it made the process faster if not easier. Teaching Cortana to do what needs to be automated in HR is imperative, as it will make things not just simpler for a lot of large organizations and companies out there but it would help them analyze critical data quickly without any delays or wait time for the team to come up with reports and analysis.
Being at Microsoft Build 2017 was a learning experience and we took home a lot with us, most notably the way they plan “world domination”
