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.

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.

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.

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.
If you are a SaaS business, you can now offer your services to the customers, with a new feature introduced by Amazon called the “instant access” HR transformation has re-vamped this industry completely and SaaS software has become the fastest growing industry. So far, WebHR has the honor of retaining its pioneer status and is by far the only SaaS based HR software to be featured at Amazon’s Instant Access. The users can create an instance using their existing accounts and keep the same billing pattern.
WebHR made its place at Amazon’s instant access by following the best security practices and very robust and advanced APIs, that made the process faster and convenient. The popularity of SaaS HR has uplifted WebHR and has brought forth its market leader status and authenticated its need to be at a marketplace, where customers have a better opportunity to reach out and avail a better HR solution to empower their teams at work.
The rise of cloud based subscription software in HR is on a constant rise and now users can utilize amazon.com to avail the services of WebHR. Amazon’s instant access has a more updated feature and can easily integrate with your PC, Mac and web-based applications.
Instant access isn’t the same as in-app purchase, instead it allows WebHR to sell its subscription software to be available on amazon.com like any other physical item, allowing the same level of discoverablility and presence like any other vendor on amazon.com
From a user’s perspective, WebHR’s delivery mechanism is now seamless, as they shop on Amazon.com, buy the subscription and then access the software by logging in. Subscriptions auto-renew and trials auto-upgrade, so the system has a smooth flow and transitions as the user transitions to the next phase. This provides immense value to the customers, as now they have to go through a simpler procedure.
A study conducted by Forrester Consulting for Amazon states that, “Sellers have chosen SaaS solutions because it lets them be more agile, reach new customers and lower the cost of customer acquisition.
WebHR has always stayed ahead of the curve in the HR industry, always bringing more value to its customers and lowering their costs. It has a dream of providing a complete HCM suite for its users without breaking their budget. So all sizes of companies can avail an equal amount of services as compared to software applications in the past, that took months of implementation, extensive set up cost and exaggerated billing. WebHR brings in a fair and just chance to companies of all sizes to avail the same set of services . WebHR has a unique stance in this regard and has abolished all tiers to its pricing, introducing a modular approach, so that the software grows along with the growth of an organization, adjusting itself through different stages of metamorphosis in a company.
WebHR’s inclusion at Amazon’s instant access will not only turn beneficial for an already international nature of its audience but will bring an added sense of ease for its customers, to come on board with them.
Health tech/ Healthcare facilities are existing in a “survival” mode for far too long. Most of the techniques and procedures used to manage their day to day lives and keep the HR records intact are old and archaic. Even the software, if they use any, are worse than using paper and files for documenting everything necessary. It takes them hours to populate the data in systems, that are outdated. Businesses like these are usually defined separately from mainstream commercial ones, as their operations fall into completely different categories and have a different way of approaching varied issues at work. Medical or healthcare facilities face time and financial constraints and the money flow sometimes puts a cork on the budget, to do more than just necessary day to day operations . The pace of workflow is usually so fast, that there is less time left to document appraisals or other important HR related tasks and usually get ignored altogether.
The people dedicated to HR department in healthcare businesses, are not solely responsible for maintaining employee records and keeping everything up to date but usually multi-task and are involved in maintaining a ton of legal paperwork . Hence, they get stressed out, when core HR processes involving complex shifts and time scheduling is handed over to them. The recent wave of Cloud based SaaS models are making lives easier round the world and it has been noted that most of the world’s largest businesses are moving towards this. They provide cost-effective alternatives to complex out-dated systems that were in place and don’t do much to facilitate the healthcare businesses.
It is also noted that in the past, businesses like these have used multiple tools to manage people and it becomes too complicated to make sure everything syncs and works at the same time to produce desirable results. With All-in-one SaaS HR software, this need can be fulfilled. WebHR has made leaps and bounds in this space and provides an All-In-One portal for a company’s HR needs and manages everything from Hire to Retire. It brings an ease of cost effective solution which complies with all Federal Ordinances to make sure it stays updated, as workplace laws continually change at a fast pace.
The availability of an enterprise level solution that costs only a fraction of what most of these businesses spend to manage people, comes as a pleasant wave of change. A much needed transition that every healthcare business and medical facilities require to upgrade themselves and meet their increasing demands of getting work done quickly, without any glitches. A paper-less work environment takes stress off HR personnel by reducing time taken to to do all the scheduling, appraisals and recruitment. All HR decisions in healthcare businesses are of critical nature and account to immense loss of valuable time and energies, if not done properly. A technically advanced SaaS software is more capable of handling complex organizational healthcare structures and make them part of the software to simplify them. It is imperative to understand that healthcare is a whole lot different from the rest of the commercial world and with the latest wave of crunching down funds for such businesses, it is important to have the knowledge about the budgeting brackets for different sizes. A SaaS model has the capabilities to adjust to all sizes and needs with a more modular approach and caters to specific needs by solving most issues at hand and then has room for all kinds of operations going on with a complete sense of privacy and security, as we know that all records at these businesses hold confidential content, that needs protection. A solution that cuts the costs and caters to their needs, is exactly what is missing in most enterprise solutions and that is where SaaS models have an edge.
Healthcare is notorious for their love of paperwork, which is more of a legal formality than necessity. With all the legal hassle to store and document the massive amount of paperwork, the mainstream HR practices are ignored till the last minute. The critical employee appraisals, forms and surveys are usually lost under heaps of legal issues. To bring a sense of order and sanity to chaotic work schedules, these businesses need to drift away and modernize, moving to a more dynamic SaaS Cloud platform that provides an end-to-end HR solution that handles everything from the point of hiring people to the point when they exit, in a seamless and efficient way. Software As a Service model like WebHR, can save thousands and millions of dollars for large hospitals and medical facilities, even the ones working multi-nationally as it already deals with clients from 196 countries and allows them to use the software in more than 30 languages. These newer systems can replace old broken ones, that are in place since the 80s, yes it is hard to believe, but there are facilities that don’t only need to stop using paper but also upgrade to technologies that solve modern day problems. It is not only about lowering down the cost to deal with the hefty and cumbersome tasks but also to automate most of the procedures, allowing teams to be more efficient and productive. These SaaS HR software need minimal skill sets for a person to use it to its maximum potentials, hence allows more room for the dedicated people to do their regular health related workflows, while the software stream-lines their hardcore HR processes. Scheduling of the nursing staff that works in shifts in the emergency department can not only be handled by the software, managers can remotely access/ monitor it, while traveling. These tools provide custom tailored analytical reports, that allows managers to judge their working cohorts and adjust the staff accordingly. This lets them control their hiring processes according to the amount of work and the way it varies seasonally.
We can conclude, that as the industry changes and goes under metamorphosis, there is a huge need for SaaS Cloud Software to fill this gap and provide a modern, more “complete”, cost-effective solution and the healthcare businesses need this now, more than ever before.
WebHR has been included on the 2017 FrontRunners quadrant for HR software! http://www.softwareadvice.com/
FrontRunners is powered by Gartner Methodology and offers a data-driven assessment of the most capable and valuable systems for small businesses. It’s driven by real user reviews/ratings, and verified product data.
This FrontRunners analysis is a data-driven assessment identifying products in the HRIS software market that offer the best capability and value for small businesses. For a given market, products are evaluated and given a score for the capability (x-axis) and value (y-axis) they bring to users. FrontRunners then plots the top 25-30 products in a quadrant format.
To be considered for the HRIS FrontRunners, a product needed a minimum of 20 user reviews, a minimum capability user rating score of 3.0 and a minimum value user rating score of 3.0. In most cases, we evaluate hundreds of products and feature only 20-30 as FrontRunners; thus, all products that qualify as FrontRunners are top performing products in their market.
WebHR is proud to be included in this category and wants to share this exciting news with its clients and customers.
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”.
So it’s Christmas round the corner eh? but it is jingling your bells harder than it should. Let WebHR be a Christmas present to your employees this year.
It is very easy for employees to get a bit lazy and feel all Christmasy which could only lead to a pile up of work ahead. A year end transitioning into a New Year can take a toll on a company in many ways than one. Let WebHR take that heavy load off your dainty shoulders.
The Cyber Monday is an inevitably sluggish time for employees who are eager to empty their wallets on some lucrative and some not very lucrative online deals. So the work falls into the snares and follies of the ever attractive e-commerce.
With Holiday season around the corner, comes other distracting attractions, from fantasy football to late night parties to employees posting way too much on social media that can effect your company, directly or indirectly.
Let WebHR regulate and remind them about their unfinished tasks to as far as scaring them with terrifying Memos!
I am kidding, or am I?
Make a strict policy and share them on the dashboard as a warning for bad ass partying types, to keep them informed about the consequences. Don’t be a party pooper but a little disciplining goes a long way. Give some incentives to slackers with Facebook like communications in WebHR, specially for the ones that would share details about those late night parties damaging your image. Let it instead be posts and videos on WebHR’s dashboard, rather than their public profiles on Facebook and Twitter that can mar your company image.
Announce bonuses and badges, encouraging team spirit and high performers with WebHR’s beautiful badges feature at the same time asking them to stay humble about their titles and not brag about it too much. Make them celebrities and boost their self worth and purpose to do more for your company and themselves as a person.
Figure out the people taking an advanced time off and manage your workload before hand through WebHR’s detailed leaves management module. For employees laid off at the year end budget cut, offer a leaving certificate or extra badges, complimenting them on their services, to make the process more humane through WebHR.
Make more communication through WebHR with your employees about New Year’s policy changes and provide them accurate information about possible mergers, acquisitions or take overs, so they believe what is true and not pay heed to rumors circling about it. More comunication creates an environment of rust. WebHR believes it is the next step towards creating harmoney and effective leadership.
Provide assistance and extend compassion towards troubles employees. Let WebHR’s robust communication help you out with the ones suffering with some kind of loss or depression. For those switching jobs, make it an easy transition and replace them with the help of WebHR’s job portal. Get them to sign all important documents which are already given in detail in WebHR, test the new candidates through WebHR’s predefined Tests.
Distribute an office’s party policy through WebHR, notifying them about serious actions to be taken against all kinds of harassment and discrimination towards either gender. Remind them to be respectful towards the female office workers and hat all drunk harrasment would be met strictly and action would be taken against any complaints coming through WebHR’s system. Encourage the females to report any incidents through WebHR to create a fair and safe office environment.
Let WebHR be your Christmas Savior and keep the Holiday spirit alive.
Above all, get your hands on the Christmas and New Year Saving Coupon designed by our team to give a little something extra in the spirit of the Holiday, so a very “merry Christmas to you all”
