This article is brought to you by KeyPay.
It’s important to remember that when you focus on creating an environment where people can be successful, a successful business will naturally follow.
It’s no secret that happy and engaged employees play a vital role in the success of a business. Yet a constant challenge that many HR teams face is how to create an engaging company culture that not only fuels internal morale, but also functions as an external vehicle for attracting top talent.
If you are in the process of brainstorming ideas on how to improve your company’s corporate culture, here are three approaches that will help you:
1. Be people-oriented
Too often, leaders get caught up in running a successful business and forget to create a healthy work environment by their side. It’s important to remember that when you focus on creating an environment where people can be successful, a successful business will naturally follow.
Having a people-centered approach involves remembering that people have feelings, passions, and other things that go on in their lives outside of work.
By creating an allowance for flexible working hours where needed and trusting employees to complete tasks on time, employees tend to return respect and are therefore more productive in their tasks.
Another aspect is to ensure that employees are equipped with the tools that allow them to be successful in their field of work. One crucial tool that HR teams should consider is payroll software. When a company has the right payroll software, HR teams will have more free time to focus on other strategic tasks that benefit company employees.
Here are the top payroll software features to watch that will help HR teams save time:
- Cloud based software: Allows access to data anytime and anywhere, providing the ability to work flexibly where needed.
- Automating: Having payroll software that automates the calculation of pay rates, tax deductions, CPF deductions, payroll processing and report distribution automatically reduces data errors while eliminating repetitive manual tasks for HR teams.
- Includes HR functionalities (such as scheduling, time and attendance, and employee self-service): Enables HR teams to consolidate data under one system, creating a simplified workspace without the need to manage multiple platforms.
2. Rethink the “resource”
The word “resource” is traditionally used in business to describe employees. But what if that was reversed and the business was seen as a resource instead?
This allows leaders to start thinking more about creating a business environment in which people want to work, contribute, and grow.
For HR teams, it is crucial to think about how employees engage in the business on a daily basis. Is the experience pleasant or are there obstacles causing frustration?
For example, when employees need to send multiple emails in HR-specific formats regarding payslips, time off requests, or expense reports, this results in a distracted employee, an HR department running out of time, and unnecessarily long messaging strings.
However, with a payroll system with self-service features for employees (a bigger bonus if that feature comes in the form of a mobile app as well) – employees can easily access payslips, documents , request time off and submit expenses with just a few clicks anytime, anywhere, with an internet connection.
3. Don’t take things too seriously
While it’s important to meet deadlines, achieve goals, and ensure a return on investment, don’t expect people to go out of their way to achieve it.
Foster a fun, empathetic work environment and leadership culture that allows people to try new things without fear of failure.
With the COVID-19 pandemic introducing new ways of working for every business, HR teams now have a great opportunity not only to conduct a review of existing employee processes, but also to introduce these new culture-creating approaches. attractive work.
Ultimately, it’s about boosting the engagement of existing employees, increasing retention rates of existing employees, and nurturing the interest of top outside talent, thereby propelling the company to new heights.
