HR Document Generation

Why HR Documentation Software is a Must

Posted by on 28th July 2017

Manual Template Population is Expensive

HR has a lot of importance in modern-day organization ranging from strategic planning to company image building. But manual activities are burdening HR teams to reach their full potential.HR activities like recruiting, hiring, disputes, certifications, and reviews together generate a staggering amount of documentation. Most HR departments still have a heavy reliance on manual document creation. This documentation starts even before an employee is hired and continues well after that person has left the organization.


Cut and paste from existing documents or manual filling templates with repetitive data is expensive, slow, and often error-prone. Delete a wrong clause, wrong joining date or forget to change a name in benefits enrollment document or employment contract document and the entire process can go off the rails. On top of it, each of these manually created documents requires careful checking thus injecting a lot of inefficiencies and wastage of time.


According to IDC research report, HR teams spend 80% of their time working with documents and using a documentation software improve their productivity by 30%. This also significantly reduces (23%) the business/compliance risks.


How HR Documentation Software works

HR Documentation Software can bring dramatic productivity gains for both large and small organizations. For a company with hundreds of employees, especially in high-turnover industries, automating document generation can result in dramatic savings and significantly reduce administrative overheads. And for small/medium Company with limited resources, this improves process turnaround time and gives them the ability to more with fewer resources.


These systems auto-generate fillable form from HR templates for entering dynamic field’s data. Populating this form for generating individual document through this approach reduces cut-and-paste errors and improves speed.


You could argue why not use Mail merge Macros instead for document generation. If your forms are simple with limited fields, macros are an option to consider. But templates are not constant and they undergo changes time-to-time. Every time you would need IT support to make changes. Hence maintenance becomes a big headache.


In spite of your investments in HCM and other applications, automation gaps and a lack of integration with your existing systems for document generation can adversely impact the quality of the employee experience.
