HR is supposed to advocate for people, yet somehow it has managed to get so buried in paperwork that it only emerges into companywide consciousness during that most dreaded time of the year: open enrollment. It seems counterintuitive, but computers can make your workplace more human, and it starts with automating certain HR processes. Using automation for benefits and compensation allows systems that were previously assisted by humans to become self-service, and it allows for a transparent process where employees can have immediate access to all their information. Ultimately, this allows HR staff to do what they do best: be an advisor. No longer bogged down by paperwork, simple questions and data entry, HR staff can get to know their employees, build better relationships throughout the company and focus on strategic innovation within HR.10 February 2021
