Devising effective strategies to engage employees is rarely straightforward. Fortunately, today's organisations can bank on human resource management systems (HRMS) that streamline work flows, unite employees and facilitate critical decision-making.

HR Pro from COL Limited, an IT services subsidiary of Wharf T&T, is a comprehensive HRMS solution that combines core functions with employee self-service (ESS) and HR analytics.

'Every generation of employees wants to get information faster and do things quicker. An ESS platform that provides instant information access and leave management benefits them all,' says Ruby Ng, head of sales operations, professional services, at COL.

The advanced function of HR Pro, HR analytics, assists management and HR professionals in making timely, accurate and fact-based decisions. The dashboard's graphic-data displays clearly show patterns, 'so that HR professionals need not worry about which data they should analyse,' says Ng.

The performance-development programme 'embeds the best practices of performance appraisal in an automatic platform, enabling practices to be implemented consistently throughout the whole organisation,' she adds.
