According to the Office for National Statistics, in 2014, 38 million adults (76%) in Great Britain accessed the Internet every day.
It has become such an integral part of our lives that we are becoming increasingly reliant on the World Wide Web in our personal and professional lives.
One aspect of this is how it can help us to perform our jobs more efficiently.
There is a wealth of useful online tools available to help business professionals; such as CRM systems, calculators, document templates and a vast amount of knowledge to tap into.
For HR professionals, the main resource would be dedicated HR software that can take the hassle out of complex HR processes by automating lots of tasks (such as those around recruitment, training or absenteeism).
However, one of the risks of going down the online route is that data may be susceptible to hacking.
Server-based solutions, such as Simply Personnel, store the data on your own server and can therefore comply with your IT team’s existing security policies.
To further ensure that data is kept secure, you can give each staff member their own log-in details with permissions to access only the information that they need to. For example, individual log-in details to be sent to staff to use the Employee Self Service module where they can amend their own personal details (including bank details) and request a holiday. The HR department would be given access to amend their own details and also those of other members of staff. Line managers would be able to view and possibly amend the details of those employees who report to them.
