Workflow Secrets of Successful Companies

For argument’s sake, let’s say you’re an HR specialist. Your day-to-day job involves processes like employee onboarding, performance reviews and recruitment. Your company’s growth spurt means you’re expanding across teams and welcoming new faces.

Exciting times, for sure but you’re juggling many processes. Automating processes could save you a lot of time so you can drive results and not herd paper. Your wish is IT’s command and you have automated processes.

The challenges come when you want to change your processes to meet the needs of the business. Now you feel like you’ve slammed into a wall because:
