From Excel to the Cloud: Updating your HR Strategy

From Excel to the Cloud: Updating your HR Strategy

Over a decade ago, the Bioenterprise office started with one simple spreadsheet to track all HR processes. As our company continued to grow, the challenge of managing our employee information did as well. The spreadsheet method could not keep up or accurately track the increased HR needs of our expanding company.

Our solution came at the perfect time when I was introduced to Humi: a complete, cloud-based HR software designed for small to mid-sized Canadian companies. It integrates everything from recruiting and time-tracking to payroll and benefits. Humi has since made my work life more simple, clean and meaningful. 

Here are some of the ways Humi has helped me increase the value of my role in the company as an HR professional.

Efficiency: Recurring tasks that once took up many hours of my day, such as tracking vacation and locating signed employee documents, now takes me minutes to complete. With the automation of administrative tasks and a portal that holds all the information I need in one place, I can accomplish more in less time. 

Data-based decision making: I can generate all the reports I need to analyze employee trends in productivity, absenteeism, turnover and much more. Using real-time data intelligence has supported me in making smarter HR decisions that fit our overall business needs. 

Continuous improvement: Professional development is important to our employees. With the performance tools provided, it has never been easier to develop a culture of continuous improvement. Our staff now creates their own goals on Humi and tracks their progress as they work towards achieving them. With the use of 360 reviews and one-on-one interviews, I also have greater insight into the type of support and resources I need to provide to continue to foster their growth. 

Of the many benefits, we’ve acquired since utilizing Humi, we have also developed an additional strategic business partner. Humi operates as more than just a software service by assisting to grow our company and ensuring we have the tools needed to better manage our greatest asset.

If your company is growing and is ready to graduate from the paper method, be sure to do your research and find a method like Humi that works best for you and your company.
