Maximise your employees’ potential with human resources management software from Sage

HR software transforms your human resources systems. Sage’s intuitive, affordable, cloud-based people management solutions help you keep your employees engaged, happy, and productive.

Why effective human resource management is vital

For many businesses, employee onboarding, salaries and benefits are their biggest expense. Getting the most from your workforce is essential to your profitability.

Finding candidates with the right combination of skills, experience, work ethic, and attitude to meet your business goals isn’t simple. Human resource management systems (HRMS) help make personnel planning quicker and easier so you can focus on running your business.

Identifying future leaders, building strong teams and developing your workplace skill sets are great for your business’s bottom line. The best employee information systems deliver better experiences for your workforce and encourage staff engagement.

Building a reputation as an “employer of choice” makes attracting and retaining top talent far more straightforward. Investing in your HR systems increases employee productivity and draws stronger applications for your hiring manager to choose from.

HR software makes workforce planning simple

Human resources software streamlines HR processes, removing the need for outdated manual labour tracking systems, cutting costs and saving valuable time. Access to real-time workforce visibility helps your employee management team design new and better ways of working.

Sage HR software offers intelligent data-driven planning capabilities across the entire employee journey. Plus, our online HR application allows you to instantly download reports and dashboards about employees’ performance, attendance, training, available time, and so much more.

And our HR system holds all the information you need to plan ahead for seasonal and product launch labour requirements, so you can always make smart business decisions. 

What the best human resources management systems offer

A quality HR system will become one of your everyday workplace tools. It should be fast to implement and make performance assessment, hiring and onboarding smooth. Establishing employee competency levels and scheduling a regular review for each member of your workforce needs to be simple.

Choosing the right human resource management (HRM) software helps you better manage and serve your team, who are key to the lasting success of your business
