HRM and HCM, respectively, represent Human Resource Management and Human Capital Management and refer to all aspects of employee management within an organization. HCM is critical for any organization because employees keep the business running. The importance of HRM and HCM grew over the last centuries as developed countries transitioned from product-based to service-based organizations. Organizations realized that a great HRM strategy correlates to organizational success, which increased HRM and HCM popularity.

What is HCM?

Human capital management is a holistic set of practices and tools used for employee recruitment, management, development, and compensation. HCM is an approach that views employees as assets to be invested in and managed to maximize their business value.

HCM Automation and Software’s also refers to a set of tools and technologies used by businesses to digitize the process of hiring, governance, and advancement of their workforces as well as planning and budgeting of the financial side of managing the workforce.

 As the world we know is extremely fast paced and the dynamics are changing constantly which requires businesses to have  agility in the processes to incorporate changes, revise plans, change financial goals and reformulate strategies. This is where HCM software’s comes into play.

Why is HCM Important?

The importance of talent management and robust HCM strategies cannot be overstated in the digital age.  HCM assists your organization in hiring the best people. This will keep you from hiring employees who are not a good fit for your company. Human capital management is crucial in:

  • Recruiting new employees
  • Employee onboarding
  • Employee skill enhancement
  • Employee retention
  • Planning and Budgeting of salaries & benefits

 Let us discuss these topics individually to comprehend the significance of Human capital Management.

1. Recruiting New Employees

Recruiting employees for your company is more complex than you might think. In times of low unemployment, finding the right person for the job can be difficult. What can help an employer stand out from the crowd? Use multiple channels to promote your job openings (your website, LinkedIn, Facebook, job database, employee referrals, online ads) to maximize your reach and attract more (and better) candidates.

2. Employee Onboarding

Making new employees feel welcome at your company is the goal of onboarding. With a good onboarding process, you can increase employee involvement and motivation. Make a checklist of everything you need to do before bringing on a new employee. Who gives the new employee a tour of the office, and how does your new hire submit expenses? Everything must fall in place.

3. Employee Skill Enhancement

There are various methods for improving your employees’ skills. Growing within an organization is one of them.

4. Employee Retention

 Retaining talent is critical to ensuring your organization’s future growth. You can accomplish employee retention by keeping them motivated and happy.

5. Planning and Budgeting of Salaries & Benefits

Employees being one of the biggest assets of the company also share the major portion of the cost that an organization incurs to run the business. This makes it extremely important to have a processe that can accurately help to budget & forecast salary, benefits, headcount and FTE calculation
