Managing a large and growing workforce can be quite a data-heavy task for HR departments. That's exactly what Glacier Megafridge, Inc. faced when handling its 11 strategic business units (SBUs) across the Philippines.
To address these challenges, the company's HR team set out to centralize employee data, aiming to improve the overall employee experience. Join us as we delve into the specific HR issues faced by Glacier Megafridge and how the Sprout Ecosystem stepped in to help.
A Closer Look at Glacier Megafridge’s HR Challenges
Glacier Megafridge's HR and payroll administrators encountered several hurdles while managing the company's SBUs. Among them include:
Processing Payroll On Time
Previously, Glacier Megafridge handled employee payroll manually. HR and payroll administrators relied on a bundy clock and Excel spreadsheets, which extended processing times by two to three days. This often meant working on weekends and holidays to meet payroll deadlines.
Generating Important Reports
Without a centralized data management system, overseeing Glacier Megafridge's SBUs posed challenges for Ms. Ces, the HR Manager. Her team spent significant time collecting data and generating reports. These inefficiencies could be addressed with a digital HR information system (HRIS).
Implementing a User-Friendly HRIS
Recognizing the impact of manual processes on payroll and data security, both employees and management agreed on the need for automation.
The HR team aimed to enhance critical information management, data security, confidentiality, and employee attendance tracking. They sought an HRIS with straightforward functionality and flexibility to meet current and future organizational needs.
How Automation Helped Glacier Megafridge Overcome HR Challenges
Glacier Megafridge ultimately partnered with Sprout to:
- Reduce payroll discrepancies and disputes by 50%.
- Implement a user-friendly HRIS.
- Centralize information in one system across all SBUs.
- Keep data confidential when processing employee payroll.
Leveraging the comprehensive Sprout Ecosystem, Glacier Megafridge's HR administrators successfully streamlined payroll and data management. This efficiency allowed them to dedicate more time to enhancing the overall employee experience.
Simplify Critical HR Processes with an Automated System
Frequently, HR departments grapple with time-consuming administrative tasks, such as payroll processing and data management, which divert their focus from enhancing the employee experience.
The solution lies in automated HR systems, which empower HR teams to manage these essential processes efficiently. By doing so, they can fully attend to employee needs while actively contributing to their organization's growth.
