HRs are dealing with huge amount of data like talent management and recruitment on their daily basis. Half their job is filtering resumes, training schedules, payslips, KPIs, employee statements and others. If these data’s get simplified and this manual work is handover to an intuitive HR process than such technology can be a valuable asset for any organisation.
If your existing HR software is unable to adapt with the growing size of the organisation and is not simple enough rather complicating matters, then you need to review the existing software.

If the employee cannot resolve queries related to accessibility, usage and content in software, then HR teams might become vary of HR software as bombardment of queries and administrative challenges still bogs them down. Then the entire workplace transformation through software becomes futile. The responsibility then lies on tech innovators to create and bring platforms that are easy-to-use but are also result oriented.
A well-designed UX simplifies work, saves time, has content that has hassle free consultation and easily optimized on all devices is most important to a software user. HRs must invest their time on UX design and their simple navigation before finalizing software for their employees. The simpler the tool the better is their employee engagement.
