A recent Wall Street Journal article has outlined a new evolution in the capabilities of HR software systems. Clint Boulton details how “a new generation of human resources software is helping companies foster accountability by linking personal goals with those of a larger group.”
Ushering in this new era of HR software is the fact that these programs can now keep track of complex missions for multitudes of employees. This lets them calculate how each employee’s progress contributes to the company’s overall aims.
The advantages of these developments are manifold. Employees with access to this “OKR” (Objectives and Key Results) software now have the ability to check in on how their goals relate the company’s and find out what they need to do to move forward on both fronts. It also saves hours of overseeing and judgment-based calculations and compresses it all in an understandable and straightforward manner that can be seen by employees, project heads, or management at any time.
Group leaders and company management teams using this type of software now have more time to actually help there groups advance towards an objective rather than making sure that everyone else is doing the same. OKR software also “cultivates a culture of honesty” amongst employees, and a healthy competitiveness that increases quality and efficiency of work.
This new development illustrates just one of the many ways modern HR software systems can benefit your company.
