Do you have complicated HR processes, or do you just like to keep a close eye on things to ensure you don’t miss an important detail? 

This is an ideal situation to deploy and utilize a custom dashboard in your human resources management software, like Scissortail HCM.

In a custom dashboard using our human capital management (HCM) software, you can compile reports and charts to help you manage any process at a glance. The dashboard keeps the items top of mind and everything you need can be found on one screen to make doing the job much easier and getting you off to the next task.

I also love how fast I can check the progress of an open job requisition. Just like the other Dashboard, the reports and charts shown on the Recruiting Dashboard quickly show if a job requisition is nearing the offer making stage or if interventions are needed to draw more qualified candidates to your job openings. Dashboards like this make workforce management so much easier and tidier to handle at every step of the talent management (or performance management, or time tracking process, or other) process. 

Open Enrollment is also another great example where dashboards really help us out. You can know who needs to be reminded and who has already submitted their applications without having to change screens multiple times like you may have to do using a default dashboard. 

It’s so nice to see a report of change requests immediately as well. Benefits administration through a solid human resources software, like Scissortail HCM, can be an effective way to save yourself time and energy on your core HR functions as well as improve employee engagement.

Did you know that you can click on any part of a chart in this dashboard and you will be taken to a report of information that makes up that part of the chart or reports? This drill down function is so easy to use.
