But few departments within an SME are as versatile as the HR department. Except prepare vacancies and new talent recruit, HR must deal with payroll, performance, layoffs, constantly changing social legislation and so much more. Fortunately, the resources of the average HR employee are no longer limited to Word, Excel and mail programs. Which other tools a well-organized HR department then has (needed)? In this article we explain the most important ones!

1. Human resource information system

A human resource information system HRIS called) is the mother of all HR tools. Ideally, this tool acts as an overarching system, linked to the other HR tools that you use to create such a central overview to preserve. An HRIS is basically a database of individual employee profiles (containing, for example, the personal details, the work schedule, the training (s) followed, absences, etc.), from which you can easily reports can purify.

2. Recruiting software

Recruiting software is the type of tool with which it all starts, at least in terms of recruitment. Naturally, one recruiting tool already offers more functions than the other.

3. Payroll processing tools

Most employees take it for granted that they get their net pay every month calculated correctly and on time on their current account, but someone who works in HR and does not have a payroll processing tool available, knows better. Storage, holidays, paid days off, benefits in kind, vacation pay, etc. There are many factors that make wage calculations a little different every month.

A sound payroll processing tool itself takes all these elements into account, so that the wages of each employee are automatically calculated and transferred at any time. There are even tools that the RSZ automatically keep abreast of new recruitments and changed wages.

4. Employee engagement tools

If happy employees be an important part of you employer branding, then asking people regularly about their satisfaction at work is of course a must. With an employee engagement tool you can easily surveys send out - some tools also give users the opportunity to engage in an anonymous conversation with each other or with their employer - and discover what you can do (even more) to make your team happy.
