Organisations today are inundated with an ever-expanding amount of information. In particular, the HR department must manage a large volume and variety of information that is often highly confidential. Employee records, contracts of employment, payroll information and learning requirements barely scratch the surface when it comes to the plethora of information managed by HR, often in both paper and digital form.

An HR department may have paper employee records and contracts stored in a filing cabinet; use an HR system to manage employee issues and absence requests; an intranet for managing job applications; and network drives for managing general documents.

With e-mail and other company-wide applications such as CRM, ERP and document management systems also thrown into the mix, the result is typically a plethora of information silos with little or no communication between them. This inevitably leads to valuable time being wasted searching for documents and information. This is often compounded by the proliferation of multiple versions of the same file, which results in errors and repeated work.

HR teams cannot operate at maximum efficiency without the ability to easily access, process and share information that resides in these multiple locations while ensuring that confidential information remains protected. In order to cope with increasing workloads, it is vital for HR departments to facilitate smooth information management operations and ensure consistent workflows. Simply put, empowering the HR team to quickly and easily locate the exact content they need enables them to be more efficient while improving collaboration with the rest of the organisation.

This paper will explore how HR departments can work more efficiently and streamline key processes by leveraging a metadata-driven enterprise information management (EIM) solution.
