How Can Zenefits Software Help Your Company?
Zenefits software can help your company to automate and connect all HR, payroll, and benefits systems by either providing solutions or integrating with currently used processes. Zenefits can help your company save money by switching from solutions that require monthly fees to this completely free solution. Solutions are paid for by the health insurance carrier, including the cost of developing, maintaining, and supporting the solution.
Expedite Recruiting and Onboarding
Zenefits software makes recruiting and onboarding simple and fast for both employers and employee candidates. Employee candidates’ information is stored and displayed in one place, with prompts for required information such as I-9s, W-4s, and bank and tax information, as well as field population assistance that make it easy for managers to onboard after hiring decisions have been made. Employees themselves help with the onboarding process, going through prompts such as signing their offer letter and updating personal information through the self-service portal.
Increase Employee Autonomy
Zenefits self-service portal is attractive, intuitive, and comprehensive. Employees can completely manage benefit options, print insurance cards, track stock options, and easily update information as needed when life changes (such as babies or marriage) occur or during open enrollment periods-boosting employee morale and contentment. Employees can also update bank and deposit information, view pay stubs, and add and view vacation and time off requests, saving managers and HR professionals’ time while decreasing the likelihood of errors and miscommunications.
Simplify Reporting and Compliance
Zenefits software allows you to access up-to-the-minute data from all of your systems, customizing and printing reports as needed with just a few clicks. This makes it easy to meet compliance requirements, clarifying ACA, EEO, sexual harassment training, and COBRA administration needs and providing automated employee alerts to help you better manage these complex issues while avoiding errors. The comprehensive reporting allowed by Zenefits software can also increase visibility across the organization, allowing managers to view data from multiple locations and departments in one place for fact based decision making.
Automate Payroll Tasks
Zenefits payroll solution can be set up to automatically process a recurring pay run based on the information you enter. The smart system adds new hires to payroll as you add them to your HR system, even calculating their deductions. As you make changes to employee information such as promotions and changes in filing status, the payroll system recognizes the changes that need to be made to payroll runs and intelligently updates where necessary. All changes and payroll information can be viewed along with the reason for the changes and the date the changes were made. If greater control is needed over payroll to customize deductions and earnings, payroll can be upgraded to pro for just a few dollars per employee per month. If you wish to keep your current payroll provider, you can easily integrate your system with the rest of Zenefits solutions and still enjoy many of the options that come standard with Zenefits Payroll.
