HR software: Maximise your employees’ potential

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 HR software 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.

Sage HR systems transform people management

Sage human resource management packages offer effective end-to-end career tracking. Our human capital management (HCM) systems feature advanced tools to keep your workforce happy and productive right from first contact, through the recruitment and hiring process and at every step of their career progression. 

Automated time and attendance features are built-in and you can be up and running in as little as 90 days.

What the best HR software 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 performance management software helps you better manage and serve your team, who are key to the lasting success of your business
