While there are many apps for people in other professions, the HR industry too has their fair share of savvy applications they can count on. Though the number of HR professionals who are using these apps is limited, it is slated to double in the coming year. Why, you ask? The HR industry has been affected tremendously because of a paradigm shift in technology. ‘Big Data’ is no more in files now. All of the analytics are done with the help of one or more applications. Recruiters have been adapting to technology at the fastest pace. There is a new evolution in the way your HR department is working. It’s no more files and folders now, its mobiles and tablets. Taking all of that into consideration, here are the top 5 apps that you can use to make your HR life a little easier to manage.
1. InSight Executive
A software-as-a-service based analytics tool, Aquire’s InSight Executive uses existing workforce data to analyze trends. The HR professionals can run such analysis to assess their progress against the stated goals using features like trend analysis, scorecard metrics and talent management measurements. The users can also use all of these metrics to make charts and diagrams which can then be linked with Microsoft Office easily and distributed amongst the concerned people.
2. Kronos Workforce Mobile
An extension to their PC based talent management system, this application can be used for time-and-attendance management. The app can be used by both managers as well as the employees.
