How does a business become a valedictorian in their industry? Not with disjointed systems and outdated processes. Employees can’t help reach their company’s goals — let alone drive their own development — with cumbersome HR software.
One California-based educational nonprofit soared to the top of its class with the help of a single easy-to-use app for HR and payroll.
Why does the right HR technology matter?
No teacher enters the field to avoid students. And no HR professional does what they do because they love data entry. They work because they want to empower employees.
But when a business is subject to routine audits and the C-suite needs HR’s insight, unwieldy tech creates an unnecessary challenge. The nonprofit’s chief HR officer (CHRO) knew how crucial efficiency was to her team’s success.
“Automation is best for HR. If you want to show the department’s value and push its impact, you have to automate,” she said.
Employees already have a lot on their plate, especially when they’re protecting children’s future. Intuitive, seamless HR tech helps them easily and quickly manage their data, allowing them to focus on their crucial mission.
How do I find the right HR technology?
The nonprofit often faces new talent trends and unexpected changes in the communities it serves. After years of investing in a stagnant HR tech provider, the CHRO sought an option that allowed them to be responsive and adaptive.
“HR is an artery of the company. Paycom allows us to readily analyze and provide data about new hires, turnovers, costs and other trends we’re seeing,” she said. “Paycom is a partner that truly hears us. It evolves as we evolve.”
She knew her schools’ success depended on the quality of its educators. But even the most talented instructors would have trouble teaching while concerned about their pay. The nonprofit’s HR director found Beti®, Paycom’s proactive payroll experience, provided the peace of mind her staff needed.
“Beti is great. Our people verify every little detail — every little cent — that makes up their pay,” she said.
