How cloud computing is shaping HR.

The impact of cloud computing for business and human resources.

What does the future of cloud computing mean for HR? Cloud computing continues to prove itself as a valuable resource for businesses. Cloud computing business applications have helped organizations work with more agility and flexibility and can connect more people to the information and resources they need to do their jobs. As the benefits become more clear to businesses, HR departments and companies have adopted the technology. Here are some ways that cloud computing in HR will continue to have an impact on human resources.

Continued Growth

Cloud computing is posed for continued growth through 2018 and beyond. HR uses a lot of data and analytics reporting in their day to day operations – from candidate screening and selection to recruitment tools to employee and payroll information to compliance tools to employee experience survey information. All this information can be easily accessed and stored safely through cloud computing applications, continuing to provide robust solutions for supporting HR.

Better Access

Cloud computing offers both HR employees and their non-HR coworkers access even when offsite. Employees can use cloud computing to access files, data, and information from a centralized cloud location even when they don’t have access to their network at their work place. This is helpful for HR managers who need to track candidates when they’re up against an ambitious hiring date to employees who just want to check out benefits information – like PTO – on the go.

Improved Candidate Experiences

Cloud computing is one of the key ways that potential new hires can have a streamline, positive applying experience, as it lends itself to better mobile experiences, where plenty of people are looking for and applying for work. It can also help keep all the important candidate information in a location that gives access to everyone involved in the hiring decision, from the department manager to the HR recruiter.

Automatic Updates

One of the biggest tech benefits of cloud computing is the ability to streamline processes. This is also true of the way that cloud computing updates. Instead of HR teams spending valuable time manually updating several different pieces of software or waiting while updates load, cloud computing ensure that the updates happen automatically so that the experience of using it is always as smooth as possible and so that those with access have the most up to date resources available.

As the workplace continues to flex and change, growing its ranks with more millennials and members of Gen Z, businesses will continue to integrate new tech and resources to support both their new workforce and their HR teams. Cloud computing offers HR – and other business departments – reduced downtime, more productivity, greater collaboration, reduced cost, and a host of other benefits that improve the overall business experience.

Cloud computing may not have been widely adopted by HR organizations in every industry, but cloud computing and HR will continue to grow and have a strong relationship that will ultimately help to support both human capital a business as already invested in and the hiring and recruiting process.
