Recruiting Software at its Core

Most companies that are just beginning to invest in recruiting software usually purchase a “core HR software program.”

Core programs provide basic HR services needed by a company, regardless of whether they’re a small business or large corporation. These programs are used to streamline processes typically completed by the HR department, increase accuracy in information and reduce the amount of work required to update employee personnel files.

Several manufacturers have created core HR software programs for businesses, so it’s often hard to choose. But keep in mind that most companies need software that will focus on payroll, employee benefits and attendance tracking. Most core software programs will allow you to add expansion programs later on.

For attendance tracking, most software allows you to enter each employee’s information into the system and save the information in a database. This feature allows HR employees to enter information about a large number of employees in a short amount of time.

On top of that, good programs are able to recognize the most common errors made when entering information. Some software also includes attendance tracking features such as the ability to generate custom reports and export the information entered into other software programs.

Payroll features found in core HR software should allow companies to pay their employees on time and in the right amount to avoid any trouble with financial records. Most programs can automatically calculate the correct payroll amount for every employee and create the correct paperwork for deductions, taxes and benefit co-payments.

Other items to consider besides basic features include the cost of the software, available expansion software programs and the level of detail the software is capable of.
