Modern companies understand that the most valuable resource they have is human capital. It is utmost importance, therefore, to effectively and constantly build, manage, and improve this resource. Although working with human beings with all their psychological, intellectual and other characteristics can be a very complex task, there are several pieces of software integrated in a powerful system which can help managers, analysts, and administration deal with these challenges and successfully correlate employee's talents, knowledge and skills to business needs.
The most important modules of Info Studio’s comprehensive HCM system are explained in next chapters.
Directly connects human resource management with the strategic plan of an organisation. The strategic planning anticipates future needs for human resources after analysis of existing human resources, external labor market, and the future environment in which the organisation operates.
Applicant Tracking provides functionalities for data collection and candidate database creation. Based on strategic organisation planing and needed jobs, job openings are published on the web. Recruiting Management Module allows employment management of job openings. Recruitment managers publish job announcement, monitor and qualify applications received from different candidates, and organise tests and interviews. This module allows easy engagement in employment process, keeps a record of all employment process activities, including evaluation of candidates.
Represents a set of employee records that are recorded in individual parts of the HCM. Employee data is divided into several groups:
Employee self service (ESS) allows employees to take care of many different HR-related and job-related tasks that would otherwise need to be completed by HR personnel or management. ESS can help many companies save labor hours and increase efficiency. SP allows employees to maintain all personal information.
The system supports tracking attendance, trips, vacations, and leave and records them all into employees' and the organisation's calendar. Employees record working hours and attendance and the supervisors review the attendance on different organisational levels. Travel management enables travel request submission and detail tracking. Vacation / leave tracking helps record the permitted days for leave, enables an employee to request one, and the supervisor to review it.
Provides functionalities for managing, updating, and recording benefits that are assigned to an employee or a work place. The benefits may be simply awarded to one or more employees, and each employee can submit a request for benefits listed by the organisation.
Enables defining specific training and development (T&D) needs by conducting analysis and establishing T&D goals. It proposes methods and delivery systems, keeps track of implementation of T&D programs, and evaluates them. All the data on employee's education, knowledge, and skills are kept and updated.
Helps identify specific performance goals, establish criteria, and examine work performed. It supports various methods for performance management, like:
Provides automatic processing of payrolls based on applicable legal regulations. Taxes that are applied in the calculation of payroll can be administered. Users can define payroll calculation method to administer data of employee suspensions from salaries and administrative bans. After payroll calculation, it is possible to get various reports, like a preview of employees salaries on a particular date or a period, for a particular organisation, work position, etc. It is also possible to export data to files for electronic banking payments (for taxes, suspensions, wages, etc), export data to the general ledger in a specifically defined format (financial software). Employees' payslips are generated and employees can view them from SSP. From this module users have an option to create files for periodic surrenders to taxes administrations. Payroll module also provides reports for statistics bureaus and other state agencies.
HR database contains very valuable information which is analysed with modern machine learning technologies and offers management and HR officers a deep understanding and a platform for better decision making.
