Putting the Pieces Together – HR Software
Don’t judge a book by its cover. Easier said than done.
Most of us are obsessed with appearances; the outer layer is the first thing people see, after all. The aesthetics must be pleasing to the eye. But what is it that really makes things work just right? What keeps everything running like clockwork?
When it comes to business, it’s what’s below the surface that holds everything together — not the expensive paint color, meticulously chosen from numerous swatches (although the paint can certainly be memorable). It’s the foundation of a company that makes it successful, and that foundation is built on the company’s employees.
So, how do you keep track of it all? How do you take care of those that keep the hands of time moving forward when you’re not there?
It’s important that you believe in and trust your employees.
The best-case scenario would be for your team to be a reflection of you and care just as much about your dream as you do, or even better – care more.
Hiring a staff is not a simple task.
There are the background checks to run, work history and resumes to review, cover letters to read, and referrals to check. This can make for a rather lengthy process. However, in today’s technologically advanced world where a new app is developed every ninety seconds, every challenge can be met with the cloud. Cangrade’s online recruitment software makes the hiring process more manageable and less time consuming.
Use this easy-to-use application to upload your job listing, including salary proposed, duties and responsibilities, applicant requirements, and education preferred. Use the system to collect candidate resumes and begin the evaluation process.
Next, the candidate responds to a series of personality and skill set questions, created by psychologists to allow you to narrow down the candidates to those that are truly a good fit for your company. Applicants receive a two-digit job performance grade that is compared to the predicted job performance grades of the rest of the candidate pool so that you can waste no time finding that perfect fit. Cangrade takes the guesswork out of the hiring process and lessens your fuss and muss when looking for that ideal candidate.
Once you find that perfect fit that adds to the foundation of your organization, how can you keep them happy? There’s so much competition between businesses these days, and the businesses that come out on top are the ones with a satisfied team. As the gears and springs behind a timepiece make it run, so do good HR practices keep employees happy. And when your employees are happy, your clients and business are happy.
CakeHR’s online workforce management software can be used by anyone, from anywhere, at any time. Cloud apps like CakeHR keep employee contact information (including address, phone numbers, emergency phone numbers, and even personal notes) in one safe, convenient space, available 24/7.
CakeHR keeps track of vacation and time off requests from your employees, while at the same time offering a place to respond and either fulfill that request or deny it.
