Therefore HR efficiency and effectiveness is critical and HR teams should continuously be improving their processes in order to better respond to the company’s requirements. All HR processes should be leaned, such as:
How to improve and speed up the candidates search and recruitment, provide the best candidates to the organization in the shortest lead time, and organize the most effective on boarding process.
Too much time is often dedicated to administrative activities, and the response to employees is not always accurate and timely. HR teams should continuously look for ways to improve these processes to reduce waste and be able to dedicate more time to bring value to the organization: support managers, leaders and employees to build a real team-based organization.
