Microsoft Power Platform, a tool for HR automation

The onboarding process has an impact on whether new employees will be able to assimilate into the corporate culture, how much they will enjoy doing their responsibilities, and whether they will be able to turn into a valuable asset for the organization. 

However, there are some challenges that HR managers and directors need to face when they are trying to welcome, educate and train the new workforce. These bottlenecks are usually rooted in manual and monotonous tasks, like providing them with the necessary documentation, access to platforms, workspaces, and including them in ongoing workflows. 

Luckily, there are some smart solutions, like the Microsoft Power Platform, that help organizations automate their HR processes.

The technical challenges of HR in the 21th century

Any department can be overloaded by manual work and make mistakes while juggling with information from many different channels, sensitive data, or contracts at the same time. The HR department needs to tackle even more manual processes than any other department, as they need to handle the hiring, paperwork, training, onboarding, and management of every employee. Within an organization, where digital transformation hasn’t started yet, this procedure is further complicated by the necessity to manage the combination of printed and digitalized records.

Moreover, in many cases, the IT department needs to be included in the correction of mistakes, or the execution of certain tasks, which makes the process even more expensive, slow and frustrating.

What is more, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more organizations are enabling their employees to work from home or from remote locations. While this trend is great for morale, it puts extra pressure on HR as they need to complete the same quality and quantity of hiring and onboarding without the candidate having to enter the office building. 

These causes call for an automated digital solution, which is able to serve the modern needs of HR directors and managers, thus saving them time, resources, and big sums of money for the enterprise.
