Back in March 2020, COVID-19 first hit our shores and we thought it was just the flu. A come and go virus if you will. But by mid-2020, reality had sunk in and we knew the fight was far from over.
As cases started to rise, businesses started closing down. Companies, unfortunately, retrenched many staff and those who remained, were told to work from home. This took some getting used to. Not to say employers didn’t trust their employees to be productive at home, but they’d rather have seen them working away on their desks with their own eyes.
Trials of WFH
Realistically, working from home is tough. There is no lie about that. Especially for those who live in a house with family and/or housemates. You can easily be distracted by the sound of the television being turned on or by someone else having a Zoom call in the next room. It’s even tougher for families with little children.
Having to juggle between putting food on the table, work and managing a household can’t be easy and most times, it can take a toll on a person’s mental health. And not many of us are blessed with the ability to buy packages from hotels who are offering Work From Hotel services to “get away from it all.”
The next best thing? A few days off work. So you turn to HR for your leave forms but then you find yourself waiting too long for them to be processed because unbeknownst to you, your HR person is also going through the same chaos at home.
If only applying for leave was as simple as opening up an app and tapping a few buttons.
Feeling the burden
Dear HR managers, we know it isn’t easy. There’s claim filing, leave applications and payroll processing for the entire company. Thank goodness for technology, unlike back when everything was done manually. Not to mention having to manually input EPF, SOCSO, tax, and many others.
Which is why many companies are opting to outsource third parties to take care of their HR management and payroll. And, contrary to popular belief, digitizing HR does not mean losing your HR managers. It just gives them back their time to focus on more important matters.
Automating your HR processes also means minimising the risk of human errors in calculations. Everything is done much quicker too. Imagine having the freedom to approve employees’ leave and claims while attending a PTA meeting. This is one of many things HReasily can do for you.
