Maximise your employees’ potential with HR software and services from Sage.

Quality HR software helps you keep your employees engaged, happy, and productive.

How human resources professionals can build a better workforce

Human resources professionals sometimes struggle to get the most from their workforce. For example, you may have plenty of applicants, but not enough candidates with the right combination of skills, experience, work ethic, and attitude to be top performers, and so on.

Ultimately, the goal of any HR leader should be to help their company become an “employer of choice” and encourage employee engagement. It’s not easy and doesn’t happen overnight, but your company can build a reputation as an employer of choice. You'll need leadership and vision at the top of the company and dedication from everyone. You'll also need the right HR software or solution.

But the reward is worth the effort—employers of choice tend to have more engaged employees and better recruiter results. By starting with a smooth process, you present an attractive first impression for the candidate and make your organisation a company of choice for them.

Use HR software to keep your employees happy

By taking a holistic view of employee time and attendance, you can track which departments are struggling with people management and where additional support may be required for employees to gain genuine job satisfaction and feel valued by your business.

Using the right human resources software also allows you to plan ahead for any jumps in requirements should there be a spike in demand for your product or service, such as seasonal or new product and services launches.

Find a solution that works for your business

You need a solution that works with the other software you depend on and then enables your business to grow faster and more efficiently.

An ideal HR solution must become part of your everyday tools, and something you use to help you do the best job possible. Most importantly, your human resources software or solution should help you serve employees, who are key to the lasting success of your business

Keep track of your people every step of the way

Effective tracking right from the start, through the recruitment and hiring process and during your people's entire career progression, is vital to keeping your workforce happy and productive.

With automated time and attendance features, you’ll also be able to gain insight into employees' working patterns: how much overtime they've worked, how much leave employees use, and if some departments have higher absence rates than normal.
