WorkHack: Eliminate HR Data Entry Forever with BambooHR

Every HR department is inundated with paperwork.  This comes with the territory of consistently hiring and onboarding new employees, keeping track of current benefits, and improving employee engagement.  These actions require extremely meticulous and repetitive manual data entry, consistent correspondence with all company departments, and organizing information sensitive documents.  Instead of focusing on visionary tasks that will make the workplace a better atmosphere, HR business partners are overwhelmed with switching from application to application to enter identical data.

BambooHR lets users manage the HR process in a much simpler way.  The app makes the transition from spreadsheets seamless. Moreover, reporting and employee requests are completely automated, which puts more time back into your workday.

The Imperative of Integrating HR Apps

During an employee’s life cycle, lots of changes occur including promotions, salary changes, and benefits updates.  Such actions easily form discrepancies in other business apps like ones that track timesheets, accounting, payroll, CRM, and project management. When this happens, the business has to slow, if not stop, to solve these challenges.  This means wasted time, unhappy employees, and operations that put your cashflow at risk. No business owner wants to deal with this. Left in a silo, BambooHR is simply a spreadsheet that is easier on the eye.
