A manual HR starters and leavers process can result in huge inefficiencies. This diverts management time from service delivery plans, results in applicants dropping by 47%, and can cause significant delays in payroll and IT.
A previous alpha project, led by Southampton City Council, proved automation can reduce failure by simplifying user processes and enhancing levels of audit and transparency.
Using agile methodology, this beta project will improve the Starters, Movers and Leavers process by implementing automation software tools. It will save line managers, applicants and support teams time by improving security and notifications, in addition to providing access to multiple forms.
This will result in timely recruitment, return of specialist hours to line managers and reduced waste from error and delay, benefiting over 7000 staff and applicants.
