HR Efficiency using Technology

June 10, 2024

We all know that human resource management goes way beyond hiring, firing, and payroll. Businesses today must increasingly focus on creating an engaging, positive work environment, following rules and regulations, improving efficiency, and using data to make great business choices. With this in mind, choosing the best HR software that can meet the expectations of your business is hugely important.



As no two businesses as the same and there is a huge range of really great technology available, making the right choice can be daunting. Our list of great platforms is long and it was really hard to select just a few, but here it is:


1.) Employment Hero

  • Employment Hero is a cloud-based HR and payroll solution that simplifies and streamlines HR and payroll management through its mobile app, enabling users to handle payroll tasks easily from anywhere. It also has a self-service portal allowing employees to access and update their personal details and view payslips online, adding a layer of transparency to the process. Employees can also submit timesheets through a self-service portal, capturing all necessary timekeeping per Fair Work legislation. Employment Hero also includes a free recruitment component.



2.) HiBob

HiBob connects to many other platforms – not just payroll and compliance systems, it also connects to Microsoft Teams and Slack for example. HiBob is fantastic for promoting employee engagement as it fosters a strong sense of communication and belonging. It has a strong social media feel to it and, as one person put it, it feels like “Instagram on the front end with Workday on the back end”.



3.) Flare – Employees Financial Support
