Artificial intelligence (AI) is still seen as somewhat of a buzzword in the HR industry, but as companies continue to refine the technology, it seems the future of HR might already be here. AI has touched almost every other major business department, so why not HR?
Are you worried about compliance? You’re not alone! Compliance keeps most HR professionals up at night. In fact, studies show most people professionals list it as one of their top concerns. That probably comes as no surprise as non-compliance can lead to costly fines and penalties for your company. Still, staying on top of existing, pending, and new federal, state, and local regulations, payroll compliance, and employer requirements is easier said than done.
Studies show that one of the top challenges that HR professionals face is how to keep their organization in compliance. Working to keep up with the constantly changing federal and state employment laws is particularly difficult for midsize businesses. In fact, some organizations simply can’t keep up and choose to ignore employment laws—but this approach can lead to a variety of risks including audits and expensive lawsuits that will siphon dollars, time and resources away from other business objectives.
Whether you’re new to HR or a veteran, you’ve probably noticed that there’s an abundance of HR technologies out there and the landscape is continuing to grow at an exponential rate. Part of the reason for this growth has to do with the evolving workforce and the need for modern software to help companies keep pace.
The world of human resources is changing. From artificial intelligence to human resources information systems, HR technology is not only revolutionizing the way HR professionals perform their day jobs, but also changing the very nature of that work. Only ten years ago, HR was known unaffectionately as “personnel management.” The department was tasked with mitigating legal risks, overseeing administrative tasks and employee inquiries, and maintaining the office’s ever-growing library of personnel files.
From shopping for groceries to hailing a cab, there isn’t much that we don’t do on our phones. We’ve gotten used to having the world in our pockets. Well, for the most part.
Let’s face it: Between cumbersome onboarding forms, tear-off paystubs, and outdated software, human resources sometimes feels like it’s stuck in the nineties. But we know how exciting and progressive HR is when it’s paired with modern technology. And when it comes to staying relevant in today’s landscape, you need to meet employees where they are: on their phones.
Get the latest news from Namely about HR, payroll, and benefits.
For most HR and payroll professionals, the beginning of the year is marked with dread, not confetti or champagne. It’s when the most pressing IRS deadlines are scheduled, new regulations take effect, and W-2s need to be squared away.
The race to attract and retain talent has never been fiercer—and we’re passionate about building software that empowers companies to stand out from the competition. So when we heard that Namely was ranked as the top HR software provider in Newsweek’s Best Business Tools 2019, we took the result to heart.
We’re excited to announce our partnership with TripActions, the business travel platform trusted by the world’s most innovative companies. Our new integration streamlines travel policies and approvals for HR professionals while delivering a best-in-class booking experience to delight road warriors.
“TripActions and Namely have partnered to streamline a previously manual process, saving HR administrators time and eliminating the need to constantly update employee information within their travel system,” said Graham Younger, Namely’s president and chief revenue officer.
We've all heard that we live in an interconnected world—but more often than not, the technologies we rely on are anything but. Moving information between one application to another often involves manual work, taking up hours of your time and creating plenty of opportunity for human error.
What if you could easily eliminate that problem, sans engineering degree? From our HR, payroll, and benefits software to our timesaving workflows, Namely has always been a big believer in the power of automation. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our new integration with Zapier, the tool that connects the applications you use every day.
