Having seen our clients grow with the start of the New Year, I wanted to share with you a checklist of all the components of personnel data and record keeping that we believe companies should have on file, and share with you the best practices for keeping all this paperwork organised.
There are several options available, but if you are currently staring at a bulging filing cabinet or a less than organised folder on your computer, you should consider shifting your attention to cloud-based software. With a filing cabinet system, you quickly take up office space that could be utilised elsewise and risk a complete loss in the event of a disaster like a fire or theft. Saving files to your computer and organising folders is a great step up from filing cabinets, but are not without flaws; computers and external hard drives have a fairly short lifespan, the available memory can fill up quickly, and it is easy to become disorganized under the amount of information you have to store.
Because of the fatal flaws with these methods to create an organisational system that works long-term, cloud-based HR systems are the best option for companies to get organised—and best of all—to stay organised.
With unlimited document storage capacities, employee profiles, performance management, reporting libraries, holiday and absence management, and so much more, breatheHR is quickly making a name for itself as the cloud-based HR system for small businesses in the UK and has created a growing and competitive HR consultant partnership program.
